5 stars Unbelievable music.

How have these guys not been given some sort of prize for being one of the most creative bands ever?!

This is completely instrumental music, adding lyrics to this music is definitely not needed though.

I would recommend this music to every musician, especially ones who are interested in listening to music which is as close as you can come to sounding completely unique and unheard before.

The band is full very proficient musicians, really technical and accurate, but the emphasis is not just on technicality. They have great ideas and taste for diverse and intreaguing fills, solos, riffs, moods, textures, melodies, improvisation and so on.

The way they layer their songs is fascinating, you can listen to this music over a long period of time, keep coming back to it and hearing new parts to the music, parts that fit perfectly and probably helped me enjoy the music when I didn't have a full understanding to what they're doing. I think this is a vital part to any piece of good music as you can enjoy it through a large period of your life, allowing it to become an important part to your musical life.

This album is definitely one of Ozric's creative peaks (they seem to have a few), their combination of different influences shows strongly. Oriental/far-eastern, jazz, funk, metal, rock, trance, drum&bass, reggae and more. There's a really ethereal sound to their music, probably due to their unparalelled use of synthesizers and effects, it gives me imagery of space, time and nature mainly.

If you want to be put in a good mood listen to "Afroclonk".

I consider it to be a masterpiece because they have worked so flippin' hard make great use of their wonderfully original and creative talents.
