The Best of the First Line-Up
Carl Johnson | Detroit, MI United States | 03/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ozric T are excellect musicians. This record over all has the best material that the original line up has written. To be honest, the band is CLEARLY influenced by Daevid Allen's Gong- in particular- the albums You and Angel's Egg. But these guys took it that step further, which only a fresh band could do. The guitarist and both keyboardist can REALLY play. They create ambient psychodelic moods and grooves that are simply fantastic, if you are into it. You can feel the synergy of the band at this time in their careers. It all comes together here, on Erpland, for the inception of the band. Just a note: The record was recorded in 1987. Enough said. Ingenious spin!"
Ozric Tentacles - 'Erpland' (Original Masters)
Mike Reed | USA | 11/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Good,outstanding and solid 1990 classic release from these neo-progressive space rockers. Known to us common folks as Ozric Tentacles. I've heard several long time Ozric fan(s) mention that 'Erpland' is one of the best pieces of work they've ever put out. I sort of tend to agree with that. Tunes here that's almost sure to pull your senses RIGHT in are the awesome opener "Eternal Wheel"(believe they still play this song on tour, even to this day), "Sunscape", title track "Erpland" and "Valley Of A Thousand Thoughts". I realize there are SO many Ozric CD titles to choose from. If you happen to be a new/er fan, 'Erpland' would be a nice place to start,then work your way from there. Recommended."
Dreams take musical form

"If you really want to have some fun at the end of your day, turn off all your lights, grab some headphones, and put Erpland on your music player of choice. The music is so colorful and interesting, your mind will drift away to places you will recall from somewhere in the past. Overall this album has a joyous 60's/70's vibe to it, but the playing is very contemporary and fresh. The guitars are brilliant, the bass is all over the place, and the keys and synths wash everything with just the right textures and ambience, and the percussion is tight locking all of these dynamic parts into place.

This collection is full of varied pieces that flow well from one song to the next. The opener is a great track, possibly the best so they come out of the gate very strong. Tidal Convergence and Mysticum Arabicola are currently battling for my favorite cut, but the whole album is really enjoyable.

I like their use of different instruments, which are combined with the core to create a really unique convergence of sounds. Nice use of special effects such as "water", "space", and "steam" to connect with your other senses. This music might not be for everyone, but there is something here for everyone (if that makes sense?).

I've listened to a number of their other releases and I enjoy them too, but Eprland is my favorite by far. If you would like to experience something different from the norm, why not give this a try? You won't be sorry!"
