4 stars 1991 Ozric Tentacles back again, after a year off, we begin with white rhino tea, which transports us to a different world, the keyboards sound like mystical sphere pressing forward, aggressive guitars and rhythm changes in flashing drums to beggin the adventure, this song in a particular way has the classic progressive rock style, so to speak, after this segment begins the psychedelia, what is Ozric Tentacles soul, until the sound of a elephant appears. excellent song with infinite changes.

still one of the best known songs of Ozric Tentacles, and im talked about Sploosh! The beginning is dark, it's funny, it seems that we are on a dark night, with sounds of a canoe or raft, apparently there is rain and thunder magnificent, bit begins, the body automatically moves, makes us dance, dream, imagine, we turn on the adrenaline, strange sounds begin while the drums keeps going and going, we're in a woodworking factory, in my opinion one of the best tracks from this band.

SAUCERS: the masterpiece of this album, banging with a really powerful sound, acoustics guitars playing to the maximum, with an Arab-ethnic tone, the rimto goes on and on, maintaining its strong, then we mix sound space, continues the same theme but change the background, then we got to the essence of the album and especially in 4:53 to the end, we have a change where we hear the drums, percussions like new age, awesome, the sound vibrating in my head to the final 4: 55, and 4:59 starts a powerful and impressive guitar tune , great that interval, impressive, low-pitched sound starts wearing make sense of the song as the end, electric guitar solo and finished the song with some keyboards epics and mystics.

No need to listen more songs to put 4 stars to the album, the rest goes to 4.4 stars, so you have it, listen, a great production of a magnificent band.

4.4 stars.
