4 stars Strangeitude opens with gusto and doesn't let up, fueled by Ed Wynne's driving riffing and a heavy performance by the rhythm section, trading off the spotlight to an amazing series of solos keyboard solo and textures-- talk about first impressions!

This Ozric release follows the band's template for success with little deviation, but benefits from an improved production over its predecessor Erpland, giving it more depth and umph to its sound. One can expect the classic Ozric blend of world/trance/psychedelic/guitar rock, with cosmic hooks and style which will appeal to fans coming from many genres. Great songs, great musicianship-- and great energy!

Strangeitude is a good place to start for rockers thinking about trying out the band, since its songs are more upbeat, and punchier than in some of their other releases.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: NA Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
