4 stars Just like Strangeitude this Ozric album seems to put even more focus on dance rhythms and grooves then usual. The sound is less rocking and more techno in a way. I can appreciate the change of direction, but rather for of the fact that there is any change at all then because of the resulting quality of the material.

After the creative laziness of the preceding album, a change of style was sure needed, but I doubt very much that this is the kind of change fans were waiting for. Well, a band shouldn't listen too much to what fans expect and do whatever they feel like doing. While Become The Other won't offer the space-rocking bliss of Erpland, the new direction at least testifies of a rekindled excitement for the material. At least on the more techno inspired moments such as Ghedengi, Wob Glass and Neurochasm. The obliged style exercises such as the Arabic Vibuthi and the ambient dub of Plurnstyle sound a whole lot less inspired.

Become the Other is a bit of an odd album from Ozric Tentacles. I guess the techno-leanings are an unwanted style-break for fans. Unluckily for the Ozrics, their typical sound, tempos and compositions aren't dissimilar enough from other albums to really attract any new fans. Overall, not bad though.
