3 stars My entry point into the Ozric's galaxy was with the spacy Erpland, and while in retrospect it is easily surpassed by some of their other works-- its combination of deeply etheric and aggressive world/psychedelic/jam rock/electronica continues to make a big impression.

The opener alone will hook most listeners, with a smart mixture of delicate and varied textures and grooves which gradually swell into a ripping guitar solo by the masterful Ed Wynne. Instantly accessible, and enjoyable, Erpland takes the listener on journey across the world-- from misty jungles to bustling market places-- with deft proficiency and often exciting grooves. As the whole, the music can drift into the background, but the listener will often be pulled back in from time to time and dazzled by its occasional intensity.

While sometimes criticized for its repetitiveness, I feel that the combination of pulsing, world trance and occasional moment of guitar-rock outburst makes for the most perfect sort of versatile listen: with Erpland one can drift off into the ether or positively shred with guitar/keyboard energy.

Highly recommended, but not the group's best!
