4 stars Ozric Tentacles politics after 2003 seems so messy and confusing, that I was wondering if the Ozric Tentacles was going to implode. John and Seaweed were already history by 2005, by which they were busying themselves with Dream Machine, a British/Italian combo. Ozric Tentacles seemed to have gotten their act together in recent years, even if it's mainly family members, as demonstrated on Paper Monkeys and Technicians of the Sacred. Dream Machine's debut is Trilogia, from 2005, released privately. Unsurprisingly the music is space rock, with more than a passing resemblance to Ozric Tentacles, but with a much calmer, relaxed approach, so if you feel sometimes Ed's guitar playing overwhelms, Dream Machine is a nice alternative. John plays lots of his flute, more than he ever did in the Ozrics, and he even plays an Armenian double reed instrument the duduk. Didier Malherbe of Gong had played the duduk on Gong's Zero to Infinity and 2 0 3 2, so I wondered if John was taking after Malherbe? Seaweed also provides some really nice spacy synth effects as well. I really think this was some nice space rock, but it seemed the group had vanished after a second release. Nice album worth having for those who like this type of space rock.
