4 stars Swirley termination is an album which is like the bits between the bits[a later bits if you like] of recordings between 1992-1999[or 98],the title of this album was chosen by the record label not the band and the sleeve to,anyway to the album itself it starts with "steep"which is one of my favorite ozric tracks to be honest,a track recorded by ed on his ownback in 1992 after having got his new 24 track studio,which starts with an acoustic guitar sound driving the track and a nice bass to a promising start and at the 1.30 minute mark it gets going really brilliant as eds electric guitar sounds really good and exciting and just plays right till the end with the bass and acoustic sound keep going along a excellent start,"space out"[another version on spice doubt called spice doubt] starts really nice and chilled and mellow and is really beautiful i think and at the 2 minute mark a soft symbol playing comes in and a bit more in everything else comes in and the drumming soft like comes in and the bass to this is really promising this reminds me of like been under water as its got that sound to it like at 4.40 minute mark it gets going more and is such a enjoyment to hear with the drumming and electronics sounding really great and the synths sounding great aswell at around 5.40 mark after awhile its gets back to how it started sounding mellow and chilled and then it ends a really great track really great to hear,"pyoing"originally the end part of yog-bar-og of arborescence album and features previous drummer merv and synth player joie,starts with drumming and electronics and synths and the drumming and electronics and bass really driving the track hear especially the drums and bass a bit in,at the 2 minute mark eds electric guitar sounds really great here though raw sounding in the mix and sounds great,then after a bit it gets mellow and then it ends,"far dreaming"starts with drumming and ed playing his elctric guitar sounding really great sound and electronics flute like and the guitar really sounds great here i love it a kind of sound that relaxes you,and the synth really great to and the drums carrying on with great effect everything about this track is greatat the 3.20 mark about it gets mellow and chilled with trippy sounds coming in chilled to and nice toand then it ends alovely great track,"waldorfdub"starts with drums and synths the drums carrying on with some nice dubby bass lines from zia and this really is a track with bass and drums and synth in background for a little bit,then more synth sounds come out and the track just keeps going with zias bass line carrying on a nice bass line to learn and nice drum playing to at the 5.10 mark it gets going more and pity the track didnt get like this abit while back after a minute or 2 thats all there is to this track really but its a great sound so dont be put of,"kick 98"is kick muck from pungent effulgent album which ed remixed after hearing some results of the floating seeds remix album,and sounds great to a great remix a great bit of drums and bass and synths everything here is great,the guitar playing sounds really good here i love it and everything else the ending to this a really great and fast like,"yoy mandala"starts dubby with the keyboards[synth]really sounding dubby here and great to hear to and the drums go together really well to the synths here sounding dreamy like and then eds guitar comes in and really sounds great again,at the 3.00 mark a vocal like sound comes in which sounds eastern,at the 4.20 mark it quitens down and like a eastern mans vocal comes in with just the synths going and few taps fro the symbol with the synth in bit soundoing like birds,then the drumming comes in lightly and this sounds absolutely great with eds guitar coming inat around the 7 minute mark it makes the drums come in again and everything else just keeps on getting better i love this track,at the 9.40 mark it gets going faster and sounds magic it is such a great joy to here how this track gets going so addictive,it ends and i dont understand how people in other reviews dont rate this highly as it is underated,though it is like unreleased and remixed stuff like,i love this and i think there are alot more ozrics fans whoed love this as much as the other albums,this deserves more people liking this album as it to me is a really good enjoyment,though ive heard ed doesnt like this recording like probably cause it was an album that the record compant wanted to make them fill an last album by the ozrics,i give this 4 stars would be 5 but doesnt seem ed will play anything of this so a 4.
