4 stars I was a little surprised at the variety on this record after hearing so many people say their music all sounds the same. It's pretty cool too that the titles of the songs really do give a clue to what they will sound like.

"Spyroid" is a spacey song that does give the impression that the electronic sounds are spiraling. "Oolite Grove" is my favourite song on this record. It has some amazing guitar melodies that soar at times as the drums pound away. Spacey synths and electronics accompany. "Afroclonk" has a funky, dance-like beat. Xylophone and synths add a spacey vibe to this tribal sounding song.

"Curious Corn" has a good beat as well with different sounds coming and going. Some blistering guitar after 3 minutes. It gets very spacey as the drums stop for a while. There is some brief scorching guitar 8 minutes in. The song just seems to drift out into space as it comes to end. "Oddentity" has a pounding beat with a catchy melody. "Papyrus" is an uptempo, Eastern sounding tune with lots of flute solos. "Meander" as the title suggests seems to float and wander along with some good guitar as well.

I really like this cd it's a trip in space. Play it loud !
