Product Description

Product Description

Mid-Price edition of the UK underground legend's 2009 studio album. One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK's festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient and ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves and psychedelic progressive rock. It's an open exploration of music and the soul. For over 25 years, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock and roll life. The band has flourished through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects (including Eat Static and Nodens Ictus), created their own record label (Dovetail & Stretchy), put out close to 25 albums, scored a hit record and sold over a million albums world-wide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the band's existence has never wavered. A campfire at the Stonehenge free festival in 1983 witnessed the birth of Ozric Tentacles. It was there that synth player Joie Hinton, stumbled upon brother's Ed Wynne (guitar) and Roly Wynne (bass), performing in a band known at the time as Bolshem People, along with drummer Nick 'Tig' Van Gelder (Jamiroquai). From that very first jam session, a musical compatibility was evoked that has since been a trademark of the Ozric Tentacles. It's a signature blend of hippy aesthetics and raver electronics with spiralling guitars, textured waves of keyboard and midi samplers, and supergroovy bass and drum rhythms. The Yumyum Tree proved that despite being over 25 years into their career the band were still a force to be reckoned with, Classic Rock Prog stating: 'there are enough moments of brilliance here to make this the best thing the band have committed to tape since Jurassic Shift in 1993.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Ozric tentacles - Yum Yum tree. 11 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw Ozric tentacles at the "Off the tracks" music festival, near Derby (East Midlands airport).
After more than 20 years at off the tracks, they were one of the best bands I have ever seen. So I recommend them to other festival organisers, when asked for feedback.
There is not really anything I would say I don't like about this band, or this CD.
I look forward to seeing this band, live, again.
I understand they have many CD"s available. I shall have to check out some others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chill out and relax 14 April 2013

One of Ozric's best efforts. Sit back with a glass of prosecco and fall away into a wonderful world of psychosomatic prog rock with a twist.

5.0 out of 5 stars another gem in a stellar career 23 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
i just feel compelled to give my own 5 stars to this cd- even though it is not quite as good as some of the earlier jewels in the Ozrics crown.. simply because it IS a fantastically enjoyable cd in its own right ( and albums like 'Arborescence' for example are actually worth SIX stars in fact)..and this cd is well worth the purchase price for the amazing title track and the even better ''mooncalf'' which i could listen to 24/7 i think sometimes. this album is so heavily repeat played by me- like all Ozrics admittedly.. and in my opinion- dont take any notice of the 1 star reviews as i feel they are often made by someone with a personal grudge- because they are so overwhelmingly and feature an almost personal attack on the bass payer- or otherwise , i dont know!, Maybe they are just maybe made by ageing fans who are bitter that Ozrics wont conform to their misty-eyed preconceptions and cant accept that change is a life process in all things- bands included. Either way i love this cd and its has given me aeons of enjoyment..and by the way, 'mooncalf' has just finished playing on my itunes yet again as i write this. Anyway- in this day and age you dont need to be concerned with reviews anyway- jut go and stream on youtube or spotify or somesuch and then if you love it enough , buy , its quite simple really. The Yumyum Tree

5.0 out of 5 stars Pongily Weird 22 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
There is something about hot summer weather that sets me off listening to Ozric Tentacles. This, in my view, is one of their best albums rating right up there with Strangeitude and Pungent Effulgent. There isn't a weak track on the album. My favourites are Plant Music and San Pedro. Pongily weird.

4.0 out of 5 stars Business as usual 16 May 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An Ozric studio release is always keenly anticipated, waiting to hear what sonic delights emit forth from Ed and Co's musical blender. On first hearing, most Ozric fans will conclude it's business as usual. The warm, rich production sound returns, the style continues in the same vein as "Spirals in Hyperspace" and "The Floors Too Far Away." The usual Ozric traits are all here. Frantic rhythms, deep booming basslines, arpeggios flying in and out, Ed's searing guitar riffs, and the usual collection of weird and wonderful noises thrown in for good measure. Highlights? Mooncalf, Oddweird, and Oolong Oolong, which then flows beautifully into the title track. Should you buy it? Yes. Why? For me, Ozric albums always get better the more you listen to them, unlike most music these days. That is why any Ozric album is always worth the cover price.
