This album is absolutely incredible. Here, the Ozrics' diverse amalgam of styles comes together in some of the most logical, coherent, and especially exciting ways. If you've never heard this band before, imagine (if you can) a band playing instrumental progressive rock, techno, world music, and psychedelic crazy bits and you've got a bit of an idea of what these guys are like. Ultimately, they defy classification...you just have to listen. Their songs range from groovy, atmospheric "jungle jams" (does that make sense?) to out-of-this-world space rock with some of the neatest synthesizers I've heard.
Compared to other Ozrics albums, this is one of the better ones. Their albums are all pretty similar, so it's difficult to pick out individual constituents and identify the better qualities...there's just something ineffably "right" about this album. And it's killer! There is absolutely no other band I know of that sounds anything like this, which adds to their alluring mystique. I don't know what else to say...it's just freakin' good.

Strangeitude is an amazing album, particularly for Prog Rock fans who like a more Rock-Guitar sound. It has the traditional Time-Signature changes found in some Progressive Rock, yet keeps a more mainstream sensibility. Some sounds can be dissonant, but they soon melt into tangible music than can be soothing or energizing to different people. Songs like Sploosh (which I refer to as "music to wash dishes by" because of the background sounds) will have you moving to the pulse of the music, and the title track had some of the most innovative use of an oscillator on a keyboard that I've ever heard. Truly an incredible album if you would like something out of the ordinary yet familiar enough not to be scary.

This is my favorite Ozric album, and it has been one of my most consistently enjoyed CDs for a decade. What I like about this album more than other Ozric releases I have heard is the relative richness of solid music versus to much "fluffy" ambience-- whereas some albums strike me as New Age, this one works more as Progressive. "White Rhino Tea" is a solid opener but one of the weaker tracks. "Sploosh!" is a throbbing voyage into a world so juicy it can quench your thirst. "Saucers" is my favorite track (and in fact on my Top 50 Songs of All Time!), due to the brilliant acoustic guitar riffs and the infectiously atypical time signature. "Strangeitude" leads in with sonic effects so powerful they'll make your heart feel like it's slowing to a stop, only to then bust out into a rocking riff that will certainly get you a speeding ticket if you're in your car at the time. "Bizarre Bazaar" is a heavy world electric guitar piece, and the final 2 tracks are decent though pale in comparison to the meat of the album described above. If you've avoided Ozric in the past because it seemed like too much ethereal soup without enough solid musical steak, I think STRANGEITUDE is just what you're hungry for.

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

Ok, as one of the reviewers below wrote, this is NOT a CD and a DVD but a 2 CD set. But then, the back cover art of the album lists the tracks wrong also! The track listing given above is correct, although the cover art does not show Throbbe and Weirditude on Disk 1 - but then again, the versions of these two tracks are the SAME as the versions on Disk 2! Now Disk 1 was issued previously, with the track listing shown above as Disk 1 of this set, so perhaps the idea was to reorder the tracks for this release, but they forgot to switch masters...who knows? So the correct listing is:

DISK 1
1. White Rhino Tea
2. Sploosh!
3. Saucers
4. Strangeitude
5. Bizarre Bazaar
6. Space Between Your Ears
7. Live Throbbe
8. Weirditude (live)
DISC 2
1. Saucers [Live Extended]
2. Sploosh! [Live]
3. Space Between Your Ears [Live]
4. White Rhino Tea [Earlier, Stranger Mix]
5. Weirditude [Live] - duplicate of Disk 1, track 8
6. The Throbbe [Live] - duplicate of Disk 1, track 7

But getting past all that, since it is the price of a regular CD, you are still getting 4 extra tracks for the same price. I must say the different mix of "White Rhino Tea" adds little value, but the live versions of "Saucers", "Sploosh", and "Space Between Your Ears" are excellent, especially the first two, so this is the edition to get, especially at this price.

As for the music, it is essentially psychedelic/space fusion with eastern touches, ranging from drone to foot-stomping workout, very much in the mode of Steve Hillage and classic Gong. I can't say there is no truth in the saying that if you have one Ozrics album you have them all, as the music has stayed within the same general style throughout their many (many!
