3 stars 'Sleeping With The Sunworm' has been recorded in 2008 at the Black Tornado Studios, Copenhagen/DK featuring nearly the same line-up which played 'Slip Into The Vortex' and 'Dead Man In Space' the same year. It looks like they are never getting tired of this. Or maybe OSC are even narcissistic in the end? Who cares? - celebrating a sixty minute space rock jam in one go still makes fun ... this is the message ... simply is what the musicians are longing for since several years now. And you can hear it during the last seconds, while they are leaving their space shuttle completely relaxed and joking after returning back to mother earth.

So here we have one piece which is divided in three sections - to make it easier to explore probably. They don't make it short definitely and need 10 minutes alone for a laid-back warm-up, something intriguing where, freely rotating in space, synths and guitars are hugging the sunworm in some way. The organ is backing very restrained. As nearly always the dual space guitar work provided by Magnus and Stefan is a special attraction. Coming towards the middle part the band then fades into a jazzy groove they are famous for. Space rock jam fans should take their time and participate in this excursion, where I especially prefer Part 3 due to the great dynamics and an inspired interaction of guitars, synth and organ - 3.5 stars.
