Prog Reviewer
2 stars On the contrary of some reviewers, I wouldn't say that this is the best Ozric Tentacles album. Actually, there are no best album from this band. They almost all sound alike: uninspired and repetitive. At least, so far (this is the tenth album I review from this band).

They have sound a little better while playing live (Ethereal Cereal) but their studio production is rather average IMHHO. And this Arborescence is no other stuff. The band plays a little heavier, but the music is repetitive to death and boring. Just anothe rjamming experience.

The title track is probably the best that is offered on this album, but let's be honest: it isn't anything from the other world. This album (as many others) might work as a soundtrack for endangered species, but as such, the music is not thrilling for a ?cent.

I guess that this album might be OK when your are listening to it while having a siesta (which is not what I 'm doing now) except during some more upbeat tracks like Myriapod which might perturbed your rest. Needless to say that the usual dull reggae track is of course available as well: There's A Planet Here fits the role marvellously. Press next is the best option.

In all, this album is far from being essential. Two stars is even quite optimistic.
