3 stars If you're a fan of the Ozrics, you pretty much know what to expect: swirling keyboards, jammy guitar, throbbing bass and exotic drumming. This album, as in all their albums, contain all of what I mentioned. And that's the problem. Whereas their early work has a raw, explosiveness to it, "Waterfall Cities" is more polished. Where it should soar into the statosphere, ('Spiralmind') it peter's out, when it should take you to that exotic far eastern land and immerse you into its culture, ('Ch'ai?') it drops you off into Epcot,and when it should send you into outer space and beyond, ('Aura Borealis') it takes you about as far as the moon. I'm not saying it's a bad album. It is certainly not! But for long time fans, its more of the same, and a tad boring to boot. For first time listeners, this may be something completely fantastic, but for me, I'd rather throw on "Erpland", or "Strangetude". Now those two are bliss!
