4 stars Like they always do, Ozric Tentacles perform excellent psychedelic sound scapes that never bore the listener. There's a succession of calm and wild parts in each instrumental track. On several moments the psychedelic Hawkwind influence is apparent in the chaotic atmospheres. In other excerpts you'll find traces of eastern music, reggae or ambient. In this kind of music, you would expect the use of an electronic drum or drum computer but Ozric alwas uses real conventional drums which sound timeless. They also manage to keep the sound of the guitar very seventies. The combination of these antique elements with the modern repetitive keys still appeal to the listener in 2006. Ozric Tentacles have never really disappointed their fans. Even though their line-up has changed completely over the years, there's no effect on the colourful sound. Maybe nowadays the emphasis is more on the electronics than it use to be. On the other hand this could be more a personal impression than a fact. Even if I try, I can't trace any significant differences between the sound of this album and the sound of the previous ones. The lush atmospheres are awesome, the tracks are compelling, the sound quality is excellent, .The Ozrics don't break any new grounds with "The floor is too far away" but who cares ? If you like the sound of Ozric Tentacles, this album will not disappoint you.
