No. The music is great anyway and those little details merely enhance it. The only track I could have done without is Vedavox, a three minute journey to the Far East, which works mainly as a bridge between the two parts of the album.

Ozric Tentacles (also known as The Ozrics) are an English instrumental rock band, whose music incorporates elements from a diverse range of genres, including psychedelic rock, progressive rock, space rock, jazz fusion, electronic music, dub music, world music, and ambient music. Formed in Somerset in 1983, the band has released over 30 albums selling over a million copies worldwide despite never having signed to a major recording label

You might have to make an exception for The Floor's Too Far Away, though. Without getting downright bad, the follow-up to Spirals gets too generic in some places, and too Eat Static in others. The biggest offenders are "Jellylips" and "Splat!," two dancefloor-ready, thumping techno tracks that seem to have chosen the wrong album to land on; they clearly belong to Ed Wynne's more electronic guises. On the other hand, there are a handful of very good pieces.

Ozric Tentacles make another excellent album. regardless of the band line-up being really unstable for the last couple of years, the music is still fantastic. and infact, there is something here for every Ozric Tentacles fan. there are times when this album sounds like the pre-record-label tapes, times when it sounds like Erpland and Strangeitude, times when it sounds like. Jurassic Shift, Become The Other, Waterfall Cities and times when it sounds like Spirals In Hyperspace

This is my favourite of the ‘Ed Wynne and guests’ trilogy of Spirals, The Floor and Yumyum Tree. I think it has the most memorable tunes out of the three and the least ‘not 10/10’ material. There are many connections with the past of the band on this one: they dragged Blim out of retirement for the artwork; it features Merv on percussion and even Tom Brooks on synths. The last time he had worked with the band before that was on Iscence in 1990, if I’m not mistaken (he did ‘reggae bubbles’ according to the pictures on Erpland). He performs on Jellylips, Space Base (or Spacebass, as it is spelled in the inner sleeve, I wonder what the real title is) and Etherclock, all of which are great. And, there’s a real drummer, Matt ‘Metro’ Shmigelsky, on four out of nine tracks. Cool, but does that automatically mean the music is better for it?No. The music is great anyway and those little details merely enhance it. The only track I could have done without is Vedavox, a three minute journey to the Far East, which works mainly as a bridge between the two parts of the album. Some fans, including myself, have suggested that the album, though the first four tunes are great, seems to lift off at Space Base. I can’t put my finger on it, but I prefer to listen to this album 6 – 9 and then 1 – 5. Anyway, the first two tracks are sort of linked together, like an intro and the first tune. Bolshem (taking its name from a pre-Ozrics line up) starts all pagan with an Ed keyboard solo and then a cool rhythm comes and introduces the listener to the new Ozrics record. About five minutes later Armchair Journey takes over, with some really dreamy synths in ambient form, before a couple of space jams, punctuated by outbursts of weirdness, a recurring theme in the Ozrics’ music and, inevitably, this album. The tune ends in ambient form again. Jellylips has an odd treated vocal sample intro saying ‘I mean’, before changing into a techno/space rock fusion. Yummy. After Vedavox, Space Base has a bouncy bassline and is dominated by guitar and bleeps and even features some dubby keyboards before bowing out in ambient form yet again. Some parts of Disdots had been heard in the extras of the Pongmasters DVD. To my ears it sounds like Eternal Wheel gone evil, with newer technology. The birdsong behind the guitar solo in the second part, combined with the excellent synth work and just perfect rhythm make it my favourite tune on the album. I hope to see it live one day. Etherclock has got lots of guitar, mostly melodic, though it does explode occasionally. The ending is ambient one more time. Splat! is a techno jam tune interspersed with guitar. Ping starts ambient, has a classical guitar solo followed by an electric one and ends as it started. There’s also some great fretless bass here.The live video of Chewier from Spirals (one of the darkest and most intense tracks on that album) is superb and slightly different from the album version with added improvisation. Paul Chousmer of Another Green World/Webcore fame does the synths on this one and successfully so. Nice little treat there.This CD has been received well by quite a few Ozrics fans, though for some it will never be as good as anything before 2002 (or the 90s). Recommended for those who enjoy the ambient/techno side of the Ozrics and don’t mind the synthesised drums (and bass, occasionally). Stay away if you only like space rock and/or organic sound. This one has the ‘Ed does everything’ vibe some people hate. 9/10
