4 stars To me, I think this is one of the more "down-to-earth" sounding OZRIC albums, in that I mean it's not quite as spacy as say, "Jurassic Shift", "Become the Other" or even "Spirals in Hyperspace". Instead of sounding like a clone of "Erpland", "Strangeitude" finds the band exploring more techno styles, likely due to the fact Joei and Merv had just then recently formed EAT STATIC. Here you get a re-recording of "White Rhino Tea" (originally off "Sliding Gliding Worlds"), here you get real drums, and some different arrangements, but overall still recognizable. Then you have "Sploosh!" showing the band doing more techno experiments that they never done before. The title track features some bizarre choppy electronic effects that do a strange number to my ears if I was to listen to it under headphones. Then they head in to techno-land. Unfortunately, to me, I don't feel "Strangeitude" lives up to the greatness of "Erpland", but this being OZRICS, I have never heard a bad OZRIC album. Worth having but I always felt "Erpland", "Jurassic Shift" and "Arborescence" were better efforts.
