4 stars Tentacles in Hyperspace ...

This OZRIC TENTACLES release from 2004 is mainly a solo album from Ed Wynne because the instruments of some tracks seem to be played only by him. The sound is very spacy with many electronic elements and clear transitions to TripHop/House, similar to acts like FILA BRAZILLIA for example. The songs are played with excellent grooves sometimes even in a Chillout mood. But when Ed Wynne plays guitar you are suddenly leaving Cafe Del Mar and it sounds like Jazz Rock (Oakum).

The title song Spirals in Hyperspace combines all these elements in a brillant way. First track Chewier is disappointing in my opinion but the following songs let you forget the false start. Slinky, Akasha and Zoemetra are wonderful atmospheric keyboard and electronic bass driven. Psychic Chasm starts as an ethno world song and then converts to a typical drum&bass piece - absolutely crazy!

Psychedelic/Space Rock meets House - rare and a successful experiment!

Rivertree | 4/5 |
