4 stars This was the first Ozric Tentacles album I heard or owned (I believe it was the first on the I.R.S. label), so it does hold that place in my collection. While I like it a lot, I find that the production is a bit rougher than to two albums to follow. On the other hand, the best tracks on the CD, Saucers and Space Between Your Ears, both sound better to me than any of the songs on the other two Ozric albums I own. They both have much more prog elements in their rhythms and structure than I am used to hearing in this band. Sure, the spaced out jam is there, but there is a level of complexity in the setup of the jam that I don't hear in the other two albums.

But the rest of the album is a very slight step down. In all of the other songs, the solos take quite a long time to develop, and often there are long stretches of very little, or even no soloing at all. That can get a bit tedious.

Nonetheless, I still love this album.
