3 stars The Ozrics clearly went the extra mile for their first album on their new label, set up by the band themselves after their departure from Snapper. As well as being somewhat more diverse in sound than many preceding albums, the disc boasts the best production they'd enjoyed for some time and had some really compelling compositions. The opening Coily has an unusually heavy, intense and dark atmosphere for the Ozrics, whilst the pulsing, electronic dance music influences that have always hovered around in the background really come to the fore on other tracks such as Xingu.

On the whole, this is a decent-quality Ozrics album and stands as proof positive that despite their reputation for simply making the same album over and over again, the Ozrics could still occasionally make that album sound fresh and new. Still, at the same time it doesn't quite stand out as a top-flight album like the run of classics from Pungent Effulgent to Jurassic Shift.

Warthur | 3/5 |
