4 stars Ozric Tentacles take psychedelic rock to unfathomable heights with Waterfall Cities. They deftly mix reggae grooves into progressive rock, and move techno above dance music into the peaks of psychedelic fusion mastery. Though all Ozrics albums contain funky bass grooves, eclectic ethnic influences, rocking electric guitar solos, and some of the most spectacular synthesizer playing ever recorded, this album features some of their best songs. The album opens with Coily, a spectacular piece which displays the spectacular synthesizer landscape, stunning rhythm section, and eastern flute and acoustic guitar that make the Ozrics great all prior to the track's terrific rock guitar laden finale. Though the entire disk is spectacular, another standout is the title track, which in the course of an arguably to short 11 minutes, serves up some unbelievably tasty synthesizer riffs in what might happen if Robert Fripp and David Gilmore ran a rave.
Quantum Tuba | 4/5 |
