Orion - Orion (Belgium 1990) @192


Remixed in June 95, this album first recorded in 1990 deserves all your attention. The tunes are played with great sensitivity, without going overboard as is often the case with Irish bands. Orion has a feel for the soul of this music and is a worthy exponent of Irish music."

Orion - Blue Room (Belgium 1993) @320

.

Over the last few years Orion has developed into an extremely professional band, completely able to catch your attention, with only instrumentals at that. Every one of the twelve tracks is a solid piece of work, the musical interpretations are full of atmosphere, now fragile, then exuberant, but always of a high technical standard. For Orion this is another step towards international status. Without a doubt this is one of the best folk bands in Belgium."

Orion - Restless Home (Belgium 1998) @224

.
"This is the most exquisite cd to land on my doorstep in many years. Not only is it well performed but thoughtfully arranged in such a way that it almost takes your breath away. Result is everything a groundbreaking acoustic folk album should be. There's no dodgy notes to distract the listener with every instrument crystal clear on what to me is a faultless production. As I sit here pondering on my next thoughts to this review I must admit to wondering if things can get much better. If I don't hear another folk album - and I suppose there's not much chance of that! - this album is to me as near as perfection gets."
