4 stars OZRIC 's TENTACLES ''Curious Corn'' came in 1997, after a controversial album, that many believed was the end of a great ''giant''.

The band returned to record excellent new material, releasing an album that reminds most of the first 90's, band's albums. Still it has new elements though, that are carefully building an atmosphere that OZRIC are used to show us. Anyone can figure some JEAN MICHEL JARRE influences, especially at the ''Oddentity'' and ''Meander'' tracks. The ''arabic'' (minor melodic) scales are fully occupying the most of album's compositions, as well as some symphonic parts, too. The MEOLA's style guitar playing, at the ''Papyrus'' track, shows another influence at this well-made effort.

In general, we have a really well-crafted album, that keeps the band's main style, but also appears to be more mature and surely, full of energy, if we consider the total lack of long ''ballad'' style tracks, that make part of some previous albums. The production is once more an excellent one, crystally clear as always...

Excellent effort! 4 stars...
