4 stars To put the Ozric Tentacles in a nutshell: never before has a prog band put out so many albums that sound so much alike. And, if I might also add, who says you can't dance to progressive music. The Ozrics deliver high-energy instrumental psychedelic music. I think if they tried to play a slow song they would crash or something. This is a band where you can start pretty much anywhere in their discography and, if you like what you hear, I can pretty much guarantee you'll like the rest. This one's no exception. So if you're the type that feels compelled to collect everything in an artist's discography when you fall for them, you'll be in trouble. Although another approach would be due to the similarity of the albums, you can take your time.

Ozric Tentacles has kind of turned into an Ed Wynn project the way King Crimson is a Fripp vehicle. On the Floor's Too Far Away, Ed's wife Brandi has taken a major role, playing on five songs and joining Ed in the mixing and production. Aaah, sweet nepotism. Anyway, nothing here that makes it stick out above the rest of the pack, just another fine collection of tracks Ozric style.
