Prog Reviewer
2 stars The previous release of the band was his first album published by a record label. Before, they produced several cassettes type of work which were pretty much dispensable, all sounding too much of the same;

I would have thought that Ozric Tentacles would follow-up on their good "Pungent Effulgent" effort and build up more consistently. But I was wrong.

This "Erpland" effort is nothing else than a long repetition of their early days albums (with the same mistakes like the dreadful "Iscence" and its reggae-oriented mood).

No inspiration, no fun, no great atmosphere, no nothing actually. Just an addition of some spacey improvised tracks with little texture. Here and there the rhythm is catching up (you know, like "Hawkwind"), but there is little to remember on this album.

It is some kind of a disappointment since the band showed some improvement with "Pungent". But they just repeated their previous mistakes as far as I'm concerned. It is not a bad album but it lacks totally of great tracks. Although the opening number "Eternal Wheel" might be the closest to this concept.

Two stars.
