2 stars Rating Ozric Tentacles albums is extremely difficult. The band have pursued a consistent sound over the course of their career, varying it organically and slowly rather than taking great departures. And it's strange how one album can seem so heavenly whilst another in a very similar style can seem quite mediocre.

This is the case with Tantric Obstacles, the followup to Erpsongs, which despite being in a very similar vein just isn't quite as interesting as its predecessor. Possibly it's because the production values - not brilliant on any of the Ozrics tape albums - seem a notch worse on this one, or possibly it's the fact that the material seems rather predictable, even by their standards. Either way, whilst Erpsong grips me from the first song, Tantric Obstacles feels rather unnecessary to me.

Warthur | 2/5 |
