4 stars Having the disadvantage of being released after the masterpiece "Jurassic Shift", Arborescence seems to be a somewhat overlooked album by OT. Instead of being an album with great material along with so-so material, Arborescence, track by track, is consistently very good. Still it's one of my favorites by them for that reason, consistency. Arborescence continues their trend of giving a cross-reference of styles. Ranging from far out, hyper space rock (Astro Cortex & Myriapod) chill-out atmospheres (Dance Of the Loomi and Arborescence) space reggae (There's A Planet Here), ethnic inspired tunes (Shima Koto and Al-Salooq) and my favorite "Yog-Bar-Og" which is a wonderfully complex but refreshingly sublime space rock workout. Not the best OT album but a collection devoid of any bad tracks. A strong effort and an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection for sure.
