4 stars OK. I realize that this band always has the same ideas, recycling them constantly, even though some albums are quite original. In "Jurassic Shift", I hear familiar sounds, but very well put together: a brilliant collage of different ideas, all used. It might sound like a negative comment, and in almost all circumstances it is. But not this time. Jurassic Shift is a good album indeed, with some brilliant moments, totally original. Some however, like I said, have been heard already in their previous albums.

The album, the band, always keeps the same style: a great mix between new age, psychedelic rock, progressive, jazz, electronic synth pop. A big melting pot. Certainly this album can't quite be compared, in my opinion, to some of their albums like "Curious Corn", "Pungent Effulgent", or even the sadly underrated "Waterfall Cities".

Great Songs are present in this album, such as the title track, a real Ozric Tentacles classic, with it's 11 minutes of perfectly flowing music, or the mind blowing "Halflight In Thillai", with it's Asian music influences, the nice "Stretchy". Also "Feng Shui", which isn't bad, has some memorable moments from it's ten minutes, like the guitar driven ending. Also, "Sunhair" always relaxes me. The album is good, and I would give it at least 4 stars, which is a compliment for a band that often repeats themselves.
