Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Liberator – 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Liberator is the ninth studio album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), released on June 17, 1993.
The album includes tracks such as “Stand Above Me,” “Dream of Me (Based on ‘Loves Theme’),” and “Everyday.”
Liberator marked a departure from OMD’s earlier synth-pop sound. The album incorporated elements of rock and guitar-driven music, reflecting a change in the band’s musical direction. The album was produced by OMD, along with Keith Richard Nixon and Andy Richards.
“Stand Above Me”: This was one of the singles from the album and received attention for its upbeat and anthemic sound and “Dream of Me (Based on ‘Loves Theme’)”: Another single that showcased the band’s exploration of different musical styles.
Liberator received mixed reviews upon its release. While some appreciated OMD’s experimentation with a more guitar-oriented sound, others found it less in line with their classic synth-pop sound. Liberator is often seen as a transitional album in OMD’s discography. It marked a period of change for the band as they explored new musical directions. After “Liberator,” OMD went on hiatus, and Andy McCluskey continued with the band’s name, releasing music under the OMD moniker. Paul Humphreys rejoined OMD in the 2000s.
Liberator is an album that reflects OMD’s willingness to evolve and experiment with their musical style. While it may not be as commercially successful as some of their earlier works, it remains a noteworthy chapter in the band’s discography for its departure from their established sound.
