4 stars Oh Yeah Baby ... Ozrics step up a gear!

For me, and I know diddly squat so take this with a pinch of salt ... the Ozrics take a quantum leap forward with this one (now that is dumb because quantum physics is about minute amounts): OK, it's a kangaroo hop forward (somehow that just doesn't work for me).

So many crowd pleasers in this album: White Rhino tea and Sploosh! (don't forget the exclamation mark).If you like dance then Strangeitude is ... well i'll get censored fill in the gaps.

One of the things you will learn form this album is that if you want to know Ozrics you must see them play. Live Throbbe and Weirditude are live and they blow the other tracks out of the wtare with sheer energy. This is not a sit back and contemplate band (you know the sort of expression jazz afficiandos have as if they are grimacing slightly with a compacted tooth while nodding sagely to those in the know about some obscure bum note).

Just paint me pink and call me Jeremy this is a brilliant album ... 4 stars

having spent my hard earned dosh on this i was later to be gobsmacked by liveunderslunky but hey there you go ...... next review
