4 stars In 1997, after having released an album that in my personal taste lacks in creativity issues, (become the other,1995), they come with Curious Corn, an album with great musical diversity, in which some elemments can be hear it of his great work "Arborescence" but with even more style and space, eliminating the heavy-rock that had characterized the band in their old albums. in this album you can appreciate different musical textures in each piece, starting from the small and innovative in style and explore, as the order of the sequence of songs. Each cover of Ozric Tentacles, we can appreciate beautiful creations that sometimes left the audience with big imaginations and fantasies to which the music presented on this album is the level of cover. Ozric Tentacles always makes you travel, you can imagine what the band wants to project, but I think that each album from Ozric Tentacles depends heavily on the perception from the person who hear it. For example listen to the theme of "Spyroid" I imagine it as an exploration into the microscopic life, cellular, and at times like season of change, "afroclonck" excellent song, what a rich composition, the music in this song produces different sensations of tranquility , peace and harmony, and an immense adventure on worlds not scout, apparently with animal sounds, feels like a Paleolithic stage with Afroclonck. and I think the masterpiece is given to the final piece "Meander," a song that starts with natural sounds, athen a promising keyboard, mysterious space, when I refer to Ozric Tentacles, I mean extremely rich compositions, with a context spiritual awakening the soul to be purified, transmitting the music from the foundations of human civilization, it is not easy to listen to Ozric Tentacles, is needed to reach mastery to appreciate.

This album could be a 5 star, but for some reason i will not gave it, possibly oddentity not entirely satisfy me, but if it is a great album, you can start easily with this album if you do not know this magnificent band.

4.5 stars
