Eyes Of Etherea Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by bertolino

4 stars Mainly a trio, these australians, under brothers Briggs guidance, offer a cool and fluid version of psychedelic instrumental prog. Like mentioned in the entry, this is a digital download ("Pay what you want" to be precise and get you interested...). This, and the first album, being recorded at a stage where the Ozric's were yet to reach big, comparisons with The Tentacles are valid but not as a matter of influence, me think. "Every Point In Time", "Darkstar" or "Bootsequence" are a fit to any record of the "Pungent" era. But limiting the Etherea's sound to that would be reductive.

The overall inspration tends much more toward jazz fusion than the Ed Wynne's projects. "Sublevel", "Fractaldactyl" and "Retropod" the title track, all have a real 70's funk jazz sound and production, a bass riff reminding me of Steve Hillage's Motivation Radio's era feel for the latter. In fact, the former's Gong guitarist "space funk" sound at the end of the seventies is as much a reference point when it comes to influences. Add a smell of Tangerine Dream spaciousness, like in "Treeline " or "Vonadawn"; the latter close the record in great "Moonmadness" fashion antd thus remind of some of Camel's incense at the closure of Peter Bardens period. At the end, you have over an hour of good funky spacewalk. Recommended.

Thanks to historian9 for the artist addition.
