4 stars The floors to far away a good name for a ozric album when i heard of it the first time,it starts with bolshem[i think maybe the name comes from when the ozrics were called bolshem people i think way back]and starts with a sound like the titanic horning and with bird sound in back ground then an eastern sound comes in on synth which just sounds great to me and then more synth comes in and drives the track and gets that little bit louader still with bird sound in back ground then fades out and thena symbol comes in and then drums and eds guitar and the whole song sounds great here and the bass bit is addictive well the whole song is what a great start a perfect opener, next is armchair journey which starts mellow and eds guitar in background and sounds great here so nice and relaxing and this goes on till the drumming comes in mellow to [this is the perfect name i think for this track and then after a bit its gets going a bit more with the drumming kind of driving it along with typical ozric sound and eds guitar sounds great here then the track quitens down a little fades out nicely and ends,next is jellylips which starts with synth strangley sound[nice sound]which sounds like the synth is ytring to say something and then the track gets going and sounds great and when this gets going after a little it sounds great and eds guitar is just a delight here love it this does to me sound a bit drum n bassey[a good thing] as it does make the track and then after a bit it kind of changes into a synth bit with still the drum n basey sound like still there and this sounds great a lovely beaty track [not drum n bas but like kind of a little]and eds guitar here is just typical him i think sounds great and goes to the end which makes this another good track,next is vedavox which starts really nicely and eastern sounding acoustic guitar sound[good]and the synth here just makes this track so addictive although this track doesnt last longjust under 3 minutes it is a really good track and then ends,next is spacebase starts with bassey synth and ed comes in with guitar and then the track gets going more when the synth comes more in [i,m not all over keen on the bassey synth bit but this track is still ok]and eds guitar comes in again and sounds typical him[great]and the track gets going more here the synth comes in again which is ok but not the best ozric sound but still good i do think eds guitar here is what makes the track and some of the synth sounds great mellow to and the bass is good to the last 2 minutes is really nice sounding as the synth sounds good not the best track on the cd but still a good track kind of relaxing,next is disdots and starts with a good synth sound like it really wants to take over then the drums come in and then eds guitar comes in and sounds like typical ed really addictive and the synth sounds brilliant [like a ufo above you like i think]then it get quiter and then gets going again with different synth sound the keys here are just really nice and spacey sounding a lovely sound and the drums sound good to then eds guitar comes in again and reminds me of ed playing in a sunny forest with birds singing like this just sounds nice,and the synths here are just nice i think and eds guitar here sounds great and really drives the track along and the bird sound goes on till the end and ends the track really nicely a brilliant track,next is etherclock and starts more kind of mellow nicely relaxing this sounds great as the synth sounds mellow and then eds guitar comes in and goes with the track nicely i think and when the guitar gets going it sounds good to,then it gets going and more bass comes in and makes the track more better to me and guitar again sounds good again and the drumms sound like they want to make the track really get going and does to as eds guitar gets faster like and i love it and the synth does to and sound like how the ozrics should sound like the last 2 minutes go mellow and really sound great here really spacey like and then the track ends a brilliant track,next is splat and starts with synth really going and the drums come in and sounds like this is gonna be a good track to me[the synths are like bubbley]the drums make this drive along and the synths get going a bit and sound good to this really does get going well to me and the synth gets going more and the drums still going well this just sounds great then calms down and eds guitar comes in and sounds so good here as the sound sounds great just like ed allways does then bass synth bit takes over with drums with keys to and sounds great this is really addictive i think i thinkthe drums are what make this track more,the last minute and half just really going for it sounding great and bassey eds guitar comes in really great sonding and go on till the end a brilliant track ,next is ping,and starts mellow and mellow bass to this just sounds really nice and the drums mellow come in and then ed comes in with acoustic guitar sound which sounds great really goes well with the track here and the synths sounding spacey and the spacey bit goes on for a little and then eds guitar sounds like strangley sounding really great here and he goes for it i love this this is great then it gets mellow and goes like this till the end really great sound i think and ends,this is a good ozric album as every track sounds great and has there magic bits its kind of more synthey based sounding but not in bad way it sounds great and should be heard by any ozrioc fan for sure i give it 4 stars as there is better but this album is a good album and i think it must be owned by ozric fans this aint a bad album considering some members had left,so 4 stars.
