4 stars This album is such a blast ! It's impossible for me to pick a top three even because the songs are all so good.

"White Rhino Tea" is definitely a live favourite with the OZRIC fans. I was surprised that I was reminded of RUSH when it turned powerful early on. Great sound 2 1/2 minutes in as well. I really like the bass and guitar. Kicking ass 3 1/2 minutes in. "Sploosh" opens with water sounds as a beat comes in and takes over. Turn it up ! Spacey sounds come and go. Guitar after 2 minutes. "Saucers" is guitar and drum led as synths come and go. "Strangeitude" is fantastic ! Atmosphere to open as a Middle-Eastern vibe roll in. I can almost smell the aroma of hydro here. Sounds stutter than drums lead the way as synths wash in and out. Nice bass and we get some voices too.

"Bizarre Bizaar" sounds so cool. Intricate yet powerful as the flute plays over top. Guitars' turn. Voices too as themes are repeated. "Space Between Your Ears" might be my favourite although the live track that follows is also in the running. Drums pound as bass joins in. Synths follow. The guitar before 2 minutes grinds away. Flute 4 minutes in. Amazing sound 4 1/2 minutes in, so intense. The guitar is lighting it up ! "Live Throbbe" opens with spoken words then flute takes over. Synths follow. Drums and an incredible sound before 2 minutes as the guitar joins in. So good.

Without a doubt one of my favourite OZRIC albums. Play it loud !
