4 stars This latest ozric album starts with a good promising sound that the ozric s are so known for and the best in my book magick valley is a bloodey excellent start and has an eastern sound to it with the synth,this is the sound of the ozrics how they should sound i think,this does remind me of the track chewier a bit[from spirals in hyperspace]this is just the right length to star the album a good start brilliant,track 2 oddweird starts with synth and the background music is nice and relaxing i think and the upfront music is just enjoyable and a nice guitar from ed i dont like this song as much as the starter but still a good track as its got what the ozrics should be just them basicly and everything about this is just good with me and the drumming is a good sound to me same with the first track just so enjoyable and eds guitar is addictive as it is with every ozric track around i think well most,next is mooncalf and starts with synth and sounds just brilliant [and a good name i think to] then the drumming comes in and drives the track along nicely with the synths this is a song i think i could get addicted in time or ok lets say now when it gets quiter it sounds to me like i,m under water a bit as the synth in background has that sound and the bass here is a good sound to and this track gets dubby in a bit further which is a good sound and brilliant love it and so will you i just love this track another good track,next is oolong oolong and starts really nice synth and then a synth sound which to me sounds like strangling it lol not a bad thing just sounds like that to me and then a guitar bit comes in and is a lovely sound and goes with the track just right fades out with the synth still going and the synth just sounds so nice here then it gets going again in the best bit this is just so addictive and a sound of an acoustic guitar bit i think in the background comes in for a little bit not long then the track fades out to an really nice spacey sound and a sound of birds like whistleing a brillint ending love it,next is yum yum tree which comes in from the last track with the birds bit and this sounds brillint more chilled out this sounds like a track that you could listen to in ya garden on a very hot day to me and goes very well after the last track this could make you go to sleep[not in boring way its just that kind of like to me]and the guitar here is just so nice and sounds so ed just makes the track i think although everything else is brilliasnt to,when the drumming[kind of mellow]comes in the synths come more in and sound just so nice kind of like a wood pigeon to me[just gets me like that the sound not what the pigeon does just the sound lol] when it gets quiter a bit at the end it sound brilliant to end the track a good track,next is plant music[love the name] starts with synth and the symbol and then it gets going and sounds a good track just brilliant i love the synth sound here and the drums i love to well everything about this sounds brilliant the symbol sopunds great and eds guitar sounds great here and a bass bit sounds great i just love this track maybe the best track so far a brilliant track as ewverything here is brilliant eds guitar is so addictive the bass here is good the drumming everything here is just perfect to me just what the doctor ordered toward the end it sounds great a brilliant track,next is nakurustarts like a bird whisleing and the synth sounds really brilliant here perfect at star of this with bird sound sounding brillint like ya in a forest this is just so mellow i love this the synth sounds in background when it comes in like ya underwater to me kind of,thje synths here are so addictive this is just how the ozrics sound here like only them could sound like this noone else a really nice track then it ends the right lentgh to really nice sounding,next is san pedro starts with synth and symbol and sounds so great here mellow and relaxing this is nice as the background bit is so good with the sound of the synth going and the drumming sounds great here really goes well with it all after the 4 minute mark ed comes in with guitar and sounds great so ed and ozric sound and the synth takes of [although it goes all the way],then the track ends nicely and mellow and a brilliant ending to abrillint album this is what the ozrics should sound like to me[ive got all the albums by one now]this is a goodalbum and if you like the ozrics you,ll lovce this well i think most ozric fans would [99% maybe] i give this 4 stars i would give 5 but there is better ozric albums but this wouldnt be a bad stasrt to start with but other stuff maybe should be first,4 stars.
