4 stars Kings of the universe of Ozric clones are going to Mother Earth .... welcome. End of talk about non-originality - who understands that he will be pleased.

Group expressed some sense of humor and trying to confuse the listener name plates, expecting that this album would be just another space rock album. Did the same thing in the prehistory of this musical subgenre Nektar did on his album Down to Earth, a return to Earth. But they then came up with a surprisingly lightweight album full of melodic songs with brief footage and circus image of members. And that's the joke (hard to tell if contrived?) - On this album is, in fact, everything remains the same and also shows how difficult it is to escape the shadow of their own, let alone the shadow of the founding fathers - Ozric Tentacles. Return to our Earth - Terra Gaia, is marked by the repetition of known and proven practices. Fortunately, or unfortunately? For fans of the band and the style is everything okay, we have another serving of delicious melodic music coming from a space rock traveling in the footsteps of Ozric Tentacles, with overlap mainly in dub and ethno (Africa , the Celts , the Far East), which fully corresponds to that it is a concept album conceived as a return trip after our home planet . In this album has a lot of parallels with the legendary Erpland . If reaches its qualities anyone's guess. Someone may not be to the taste of straightness rhythms, another grins than impressionability melodies of songs, others will be irritated a little taste of the band experiment more , but I think it is necessary to appreciate the quality of the band , mainly songwriting potential bandleader Pieter Van den Broeck [ aka Pete Mush ] that does not go in the making of this , perhaps forever minority and unjustly neglected branch of music because the band playing this music that should never easy. Yet it is doing very well , especially in the countries of Scandinavia.There should shop around those who yearn for the more experimental space rock, there is operate the pack type Oresund Space Collective, or Taipuva Luotisuora. Finally, I should add that after a series of previous 3 great albums is difficult to establish and continue to set high standard of quality. Still, the band managed to record an album continued in the best traditions and would be a small miracle if at times showed no fatigue invention. This, however, show any other album.

Highlighs? Desert rush, Aargh, Chopsticks and gongs, Cowdians( surprising space country!).
