17165RE: [ProgAndOther] Re: Ozric Tentacles
- Dec 4, 2002I'm a pretty big fan of the OT guys and have a bunch of their stuff. I tend
to agree (ever so slightly) that their music has a "same-ness" quality to
it. I guess that doesn't bother me.
If I had to recommend a single disc, I would suggest Erpland. Its one of
their earlier ones and tends to be fairly divergent from track to track.
Pungent Effulgent and Jurassic Shift come in 2nd and 3rd for me. There are
some discs that have solid color with a black drawing. These are from the
OOP box set (Ethereal Cereal if I remember right). They contain material
from the 80's. There's a slight reggae feel to those discs.
They haven't broken much new ground since the mid 90s, but I did enjoy the
Waterfall Cities disc better that the couple before it. They've got a new
live one, Live at the Pongmaster's Ball. It has some of their older material
on it, but most of the tracks are from their recent discs.

The only album I have by them is "Jurassic Shift" and to be honest it really
does not do much for me. They are very fine musicians, but it did not
compell me to go out and pick up any more of their stuff.
