CD Reviews

WOW...

"Since we have a slew of reviews here already, I'll keep this short...

WOW!!!

I've been curious about this band for a long time. I finally took a chance on this disc. Having read the other reviews, I was expecting something mildly interesting of the "psychadelic" persuasion. But I never expected such a technically proficient quasi-prog jam band!

To begin, these guys are tight instrumentalists! Each track is river of shifting themes and groovy jams. Rather than actual "tunes," most pieces are simply a skeletal frame for a collage of interveaving jam passages that ebb and flow, carrying you along.

It's hard to really lump these guys under any genre label, because they're too weirdly unique. They come accross sounding a little like techno--but only superficially, because they're much deeper than any tecno I've ever heard (I'm no fan of techno).

Basically, these guys are impossible to categorize. And after hearing this one disc, I've become an instant fan. :D"
Gloriously Weird!

"Many times during this CD does the band's creativity defy description. My best advice is to just sit back, put the earphones on, close your eyes and just let your mind work. My favorite song on this album (and, I'll admit, on any of their albums) is "Sploosh!" While a bit repetitive it is an incredibly fun listen."
One of their strongest early discs

"Strangeitude is an essential Ozrics disc. Aside from containing one of their concert dance staples, "Sploosh," this disc boasts a wide, innovative range of space-rock compositions that really show how unique their sensibilities were as a band in their first incarnation. Joie Hinton and Ed Gwynn made a fabulously talented dual-leader combo in this first Ozrics lineup and this disc, along with Jurassic Shift and Erpland, form part of an incredibly productive and consistently excellent body of work. Highly listenable, challenging, and resistant to the formulaic prog-rock sensibility."
