4.0 out of 5 stars A new Ozric Tentacles album! 9 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
Sequencer riffs? Check. Long fluid guitar lines ? Check. Mad spiralling synths? Check. Trippy jazz flute? Check. Interesting dance rhythm patterns? Check. That can only mean one thing: A new Ozric Tentacles album!
Yes, The Hidden Step has an Egyptian theme: Check out "Ashlandi Bol", 'Aramanu' and 'Ta Khut' , all strange, dreamy and other worldly in turn. Yes, Seaweed's keyboard pyrotechnics are all here in tact. Yes, there's the usual club stylee excercise in crescendo on 'Tight Spin'. Yes, there's an embarassment of rhythmic and melodic riches all round.
But what about the guitar playing, right?! While the rate of evolution of the Ozric sound may have slowed, delivering another cosmic workout, it's all about the ever under-rated but brilliant Ed Wynne (see also Jurassic Shift review) and the fact that his playing takes you to the furthest reaches of your mind.
"Holohedron" opens things up with a gradual build on the synths, with Ed holding off just long enough before launching into his 1st solo on the album. It, like the guitar work overall on this album, is inspired, but there's not enough of it! There are other guitar moments littered throughout the album, but it has taken a bit of a back seat on this one. If you've yet to get an Ozrics album, then this is as good a place to start as anywhere, but I'd recommend Jurassic Shift from a guitar POV as essential.

As usual, the Ozrics carry you off into the furthest reaches of your mind. Brilliant stuff. No lyrics, but listen to them while meditating on transcendental lila literatures such as Mahabharata or Ramayana. It's a mystical journey all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Ozrics 3 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Nothing for Ozrics fans to be afraid of here - the usual mix of soaring guitar work, a driving drum / bass section, sequencers aplenty, the occasional eastern-influenced track and fine, fine musicianship throughout. Exactly what was required. Let's hope they don't ever find a "new direction" or anything...

Ed Wynne and his fellow band of prog-virtuosos have produced yet another slab of spiralling synths, glissando guitar, and exquisite soundscapes in this cortex-crumbling montage of space-rock. With a distinctive move in the direction of Egypt, this displays all of the Ozrics' abililty to transcend the dullness of dub and the tedium of trance to truely transport the listener into a neo-classical Nirvana. Masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars imaginitive music 1 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i had decided to make an ozric compilation cd for the car, as i don't like using original cds on a car system.
i had already taken some tracks from the excellent waterfall cities album,erpland and from jurrassic shift as well.
so i just needed another really good ozric album to finnish it off.
having read quite a few reviews i decided to go for the hidden step and i wasn't disappointed.
i would put this album up there with waterfall cities and being a slightly more recent album than erpland and jurrassic shift it has the
better sound quality of waterfall cities as well. the drum beats are varied from rock to eastern and more ethnic sounds and the
synths are psychedelic and trippy. with searing lead guitar sounds and weird and wonderful samples thrown in this album is both
immaginitive and highly original.
