    I love the Ozrics, but sad to say i've reached the point where i just don't get that interested in any of their new releases, they just don't seem to be treading any new ground. When i'm in the mood i've been turning to Quantum Fantay (i'm still wowed from their Progday performance) or Hidria Spacefolk - they seem to shake things up a bit more. That last Gong album hits all the right buttons too.

    I was excited, initially, because I haven't given the Ozrics much through in recent times.

    If I may ask, why is this in the OT forum?
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    Are you kidding, I think I heard a new note they have never played before.

    Same for me. Without even listening to their latest effort I already know the music on it. The same formula repeated ad nauseam, too predictable and artistically stagnant. I already have 4 or 5 O.T albums (which I like) but don't think I need more of the same. And I agree about the last (yes, LAST unfortunately !) GONG album which is fantastic.

    They should to let in one or two more 'composers' to complicate things.
    Ed Wynne needs someone to argue with.

    This problem has happened to many great bands.

    Technicians of the Space is enjoyable (if you haven't listen to many of theirs) but very predictable. They need to become a real band again (instead of a familly affair) if they want to have a future, as zeuhlmate aptly mentioned.

    Excellent album. I think their last few albums have only seen them get musically stronger (doing more of a space/techno thing-- and oh, it's happy, groovable, infectious music that sounds superb on good headphones).

    Technicians of the Sacred was my first Ozric Tentacles album, and I liked it so much I bought it on vinyl. I had heard a few scattered tracks about 10 years ago or so, but they didn't do much for me. This stuff though... It's quite nice.

    I can see where they might get a bit samey, and I probably don't need all of their records, but I could certainly use a few at least.

    I'm partial to Erpland and Waterfall Cities.
    Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world.

    Love everything from Tantric Obstacles through Become the Other. I don't love Curious Corn, but love Waterfall Cities and Hidden Step. Hit or miss after that for me. Strangeitude, Waterfall Cities, Jurassic Shift, Hidden Step, and Arborescence are my favorites, but really all of their albums have some good tracks. And the guitar playing is always exciting and perfect for the music.

    I think that the series of albums, up and including Curious Corn, are their best and most challenging works. From then on I've really struggled to get anything out of the albums that followed. With the exception of Spirals In Hyperspace that was a return to some form, the rest have been no more than a set of average "deja vu" albums. Underwhelming stuff, many times lazy, with no memorable themes or development. Sadly, they leave me cold and don't think there's any going back.
