5 stars Waterfall cities is certainly not the best introduction for Ozric beginners. But for those who are considerably familiar with the Ozric opus, Waterfall Cities can be treated as one of their best - a real masterpiece. Of course, first listening won't give you that impression. Especially the introductory Coily, which suggests lack of orientation and electronic hypertrophy. But that is just a dummy. Coily is a perfect example of carefully structured song which has everything that OT music can offer: both rhythm and melody, strength and subtlety, raising temperature as the song moves towards its end. The same case is with the song Waterfall City. Many Ozric songs are regularly recognized by Ozric loyalists as real masterpieces only after months, even years of listening - they have their inner beauty, a hidden agenda I would call it. Spiralmind definitely doesn't fit into that category - I personally don't go on a longer trip without it. Highly intoxicating, pure metaphysics of rock. It resembles Jurassic Shift (the song), Curious Corn (the song again), Oakum, Spacebass and those Ozric dainties which represent a complete musical and intellectual journey, making you think that music is really some special dimension of being. Waterfall Cities - brilliant and inspiring.
