3 stars Spirals in hyperspace the last ozric album with,seaweed,john,zia,which is a shame as i think they were important to the ozric sound but things have to change at times well come on a shreading of skin needs to happen,it starts with chewier and starts with synth really starting well and drums come in and the track calms for a second or two then gets going again and this is a track by ozrics i really like alot as when ed s guitar comes in he really goes for it and the synths are really sounding great here and when it calms for a second the synth sounds typucal ozrics psyche like and this played live really sounds great to,when it calms down again eds guitar comes in quitly but really good sound and the synth is really absolutely brilliant here then it gets going again and goesto the end and a brilliant track,next is spirals in hyperspace which is more laid back with bass synth goingand a good sound to and the laid back synth really is so good here although this track is more synth sounding which for me is good some might not like,when eds guitar comes in it does sound good with the track and then synth takes over which is magic sounds really laid back like then eds guitar comes in for a little bit then the synth again and then a flute sound comes in,this then gets eastern like with the synth and eds guitar sound is good again thats this track basicly at 9.51 mins long its got bits what everyone will like i think this could of been a little shorter but its a good track i thinkthe last minute of this track is really great to hear love the last bit eds guitar is great here,and next is slinky at 8.39 minutes starts really laid back with synth and laid back drumming sounds good [the start of this would make a baby go to sleep i think lol]really laid back and nice this is the ozrics at there one most laid back the synth changes in p[arts which is good although the background music stays the same and drumming does to its the main keys that make the track go but the background music drives it i do think this goes on a little to long but i do like it as when eds guitar comes init does make it better for me more interestingso its not a bad track afterall just a bit to much synth driven for me and a little bit long,next is toka tola starts with a synth sound going high for a bit then guitar comes inthis is an ok track but not my favorite track although the bass reminds me of oddentity a little[from curious corn]and when u can hear it you,ll get what i mean i hope,then it gets more going faster and better sounding as eds guitar is just so him for a little bit,then it calms down and a really good sounding synth comes in like it wants to play it self which sounds good to and ed makes his guitar sound good mellow on the strings,thern it ends,plasmoid starts with synth which is like strangling it sound quite and the bass is kind of could of been better but its ok its just this track dont interest me much really as theres not enough guitar in it just to synthy for me but its ok but not the best track by far from the ozrics it could of been better i think,next is oakum and starts mellow and more promisingat 9.03 minutes long to,then it starts to get going a bit where the synth symbol comes in which sounds great i really do like this sound and the flute sound sonds great to and then the track gets going with eds guitar sounding great and the flute is great the last 4 minutes of this is brilliant as it really does get going good and eds guitar here with the synth just goes so well together i think in bits when they play together really great then the last 2 minutes this gets going so well and a mellow bit calms it down with the bass calm to this really is a great track and was on the pongmasters ball to live and sounds better there i think sometimes at 9.03 mins long its just right got bits which are really interesting to me,akasha starts really laid backthen starts to get going although synthy but not to bad as i do like the acoustic guitar or stings bitquite alot then sa guitar sound comes in which is a good sound and the synth sound here sounds great sounds great through headphones,the last minute or so is really nice though love the sound,psychic chasm now this is brilliant i love this one of the best ozric tracks out of loads though,starts like a sound in the universe kind of reminds me of stars at night shining this really should be heard by everyone as when this gets going after the nice start and it gets drum n bassey like and the synth going well and really goes with the drum n bass really well eds guitar here is so good aswell sounding and the drum n bass bit still goingall the way along this really is a great track the last 2 minutes been mainly drum n bass like then the last minute really like the end well its like the whole song just brilliant i think,next is zoemetrais like eastern sounding i do quite like this although it is synth like buty i do like the background synth sound and a synth bit which comes in every 10 serconds or so for a little bit but does come in again after a slight go away this isnt a bad track quite like this and it ends great to with birds singing,this isnt the best ozric album i think so i,ll give it 3 stars although some of you might love it more than me i just think it could of had morte guitar like and not so much synth driven so 3 stars.
