4 stars This record is a bit disappointing. OZRIC TENTACLES is progressive space rock in the style of Steve HILLAGE. This record has couples of almost bad songs: "Sploosh" is just repetitive drums with a minimalist sequenced beat and some irritating keyboards sounds. The 7th song is "Live Throbbe", which is a bit annoying due to its slow and dull beat with not very big elaboration of the composition.

Many songs are slow to get interesting parts: on "Weirditude", it takes an eternity for the bass to enter; on "Strangeitude", after the too long arab debut, there is a bass synth very repetitive for a too long time; Fortunately, the very progressive "White Rhino Tea" is outstanding and is one of the best OT track. "Saucers" is really good too. Rest is listenable. Tracks 5 and 6 are quite good standard OT tracks.
