4 stars This is the Ozrics definitive album and most fans will probably tell you its their best. Where as most of the Ozric's albums are the musical equivelant to LSD (and this is no exception, just listen to that panning effect, loud, at the end of the intro to the title track, it screws with your head (man)) Strangeitude is more focused and the riffs are less random sounding and more memorable. It ranges from mid paced organic dance music (Sploosh) goes through Dub, Ambient, Baroque and uptempo Metal raffage (The space between your ears) not unlike Iron Maiden, and because its such an eclectic melee it can only be described as progressive. Recommended to anyone looking for a cross between Steve Hillage, Hawkwind, Rush and a smattering of Tangerine Dream. I won't review the rest of their albums as they're all like this but with varying degrees of organic/syntheticness (if there is such a word).
