4 stars I've been an Ozrics fan for some time now, a number of years since a friend of mine introduced me with 'The Hidden Step', a masterpiece of an album. This would be the first release they'd made since i'd been a fan of theirs, and I looked forward to it. It was interesting to see watching the Pongmasters DVD that certain jams became parts of songs (one jam appearing in part of the title track). I was a little dissapointed with that, I'd have liked a song based on that jam, although Spirals is certainly a good track. You can alo hear a bit of Slinky being played at the Nodens Ictus soundcheck. Despite the fact this is one of my favorite ozrics albums, I have to say I'm a little dissapointed the other members are left out (and despite Zia leaving, he's back, leaving Pazza no-where to be heard!) I also thought there was too much sequenced Bass on the album - I like the band for their ability to PLAY their music, not just sit back with a sequencer. Ed Wynne is a clearly accomplished musician so perhaps he should play more rather than sequence ;)

Even so, I still think it's a great album, good to get if your a newbie, but i'd go for The Hidden Step first :D
