OSI first and eponymous album was my favorite of 2003, with its original material, concept and compositions. The Office of Strategic Influences could be pictured quite well in our day and age. The subsequent album Free in 2006 did not thrilled me at the same level that OSI did, but remained interesting. The 2009 album Blood was quite good with guest appearances of Mikael Akerfeldt (singing on the tune Stockholm) and Gavin Harrison on drums. This new release Fire Make Thunder is in line with Blood, which is to say that I like it very much, and the presence of Gavin Harrison is felt here even more. We hear powerful prog metal which may interested people who don't like prog usually, but dig metal and hard rock. Overall, a very good project.
