4 stars Ozric Tentacles is planet of themselves. Obviously progressive spacey psychedelic team, with their roots in UK underground and their sound in endless trance techno jamming. Their discography is huge, and for casual listeners, as I am, it's far too much to be listened.

I can enjoy their endless jamming, great synthesizers spacey sound and rocky guitar shredding. They have their formula, even more - they invented their music! You can like it or not, but almost every their release is easy recognisable.

Problem for me with their music is I can't stay overdose of endless jamming. Without beginning and the end. Great musicianship ,which starts nowhere and goes nowhere. But I really enjoy listening small doses of their best moments. This EP is a great release for such listeners as I am.

Forty something minutes is classic vinyl LP size, so I can't feel like listening to something short. Compositions there are all strong and comes from few different studio albums. Live musicianship in case of Ozric Tentacles is good choice - recording quality is great and music is more alive than on their studio releases.

I am not a big specialist in band's discography, so possibly my opinion there isn't very professional, but in fact from what I heard from band, I am happy to have this EP as great sample of their music. Even more - I think it's enough for me from them.

You see, possibly I am not the best person to recommend something in case of Ozric Tentacles, but if you're fresh and don't know where to start with them, you can do it right from this release. Possibly, you will be happy with it, and will decide that enough is enough, or it will be just your start to their spacey psyche jungles.
