3 stars Become the other,nice title,and nice name for a ozrics album,it starts with "cat dna"and at start with eds guitar and rads[new comer] drums and nice bass from zia and seeweed [new comer] on synths they all work together well here and seeweed showing hes got what joie has got to so a good welcome from him and rads drumming,the bass here is what for me really makes the song carry on,this track really is a good ozric track its got what an ozric fan all needs in this track and a great opener to the album to sounds a bit like haunting a bit in parts to in the background from the synths,"ahu belahu"strarts with what for me sounds like the electronics are trying to talk like,and then it gets going with a sound i cant kind of explain but sounds good its mellow and like a kind of african drum beat like,"ghedengi"starts with synths twirling lightly and an eastern sound from the synths like and goes like this for a bit and about the 3.30 minute mark it quietens down and a really nice mellow synth bit comes in and i love this bit and after a little bit it gets back to how the track was like kind of at the beginning then ends,"wob glass"starts with electronics and nice bass and nice calm drumming and the synth playing,though not my favorite of ozrics tracks its ok just a bit carryon a bit for me but still is ok when eds guitar comes in at around the 5.20 minute mark it makes the track better and then the rest of it sounds alot better after,"neurochasm"starts with synths going up and down like and a few notes of bass though i do like the synths here really going ozricy like,the bass here is nice to kind of same level as cat dna,then calms down with synths going up and down like and drumming going well and eds guitar really great to[could be synth but sounds guitary] and synths to and eastern sounding stynth bit sounding good,eds guitar comes in and really sounds great and then ends,"become the other" starts calm with drumming and really calm guitar from ed sounds really chilled and calm sythns playing alone with all,this track sounds great with just a lamp on in middle of the night,then flute comes in playing along a little,this track is a track which could make you fall asleep,then the bass comes in more like and nice bit of bass to really fitting in well with the track the background sythns sounding really nice,then eds guitar gets going more and the bass getting faster like,then it gets back to how it started like which is nice the flute in background is really nice here then it ends,"vibuthi"starts with ed on acoustic like sound guitar sounding eastern and nice playing to then the flute lays along with it which sounds great and eastern sounding then the bass and drums come in and fitting together really well eds guitar making this track most of all then the guitar gets more electric sounding and faster and the rest getting faster this is enjoyable track with the flute going together with eds guitar well,then eds guitar playing along nicely,then a really nice synth bit comes in really to me like ghostly a little then flute comes in and really i love the flute here playing a really good bit of flute here,then eds guitar comes in again and going at a nice speed here really good,then at the 6.40 mark it really gets going more everything then just is like lighting going as it should to me,at the 8 minute mark around just after the synths come in and sound a bit organ like in background kind of,and with sythns playing it really is good sounding,then eds guitar comes in again and drives the track more again and sound really exciting and goes to the end which makes this the best track on this album,"plurnstyle"starts kind of low[quiet] with electronics styths and bass and calm drumming this is another track which is nice with just a lamp on in middle of the night,a nice bit of bass and calm to[a kind of track to make a baby go to sleep maybe],at the 4.30 mark eds acoustic sound guitar comes in and sounds calm to then back to how the track started like,the bas carrying on and really mellow and electronics sounding like there chanting a bit like for few seconds,then eds guitar[electric] comes in calm and nice,this is a nice calm ending to a good album,but this album isnt the best ozrics album for me as it more electronic and not as much guitar which sounds to me that its more of a seeweed album than other but thats my opinion but the tracks are still good,i give this 3 stars as there is better ozrics albums.
