I've been listening to this album constantly lately, and really digging it. I didn't think anything could top the studio version of Dance Of The Loomi, but this live version definitely does! The little "extra bits" add to the track in a great way. I do think it's time to retire Chickens In The Mist- not that I don't like it, but it's on every NI album, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of variation. I'd rather hear Ed take another Ozric track or two and rework them into the NI vibe. Tracks like Wob Glass or Zenlike Creature would be awesome in a Nodens Ictus set IMO.
If we're doing that, I'd like to hear Crackerblocks, Half Light in Thillai, Akasha, Oolong, The Unusual Village and maybe even Strangeitude get the Nodens treatment.
Agreed! Those are among my favourites, with Crackerblocks on the 1st position. Man, imagine that one being played live. I also like the Dance of the Loomi version by Nodens Ictus. I would say it is not a typical Ozrics track, but VERY good nonetheless.
Oolong Oolong - to me - has the same dreamlike, glassy quality. It is one of the reasons I immediately bought the live Nodens Ictus album. I was a bit disappointed that it turned out to be not Oolong Oolong, but another track off the Yumyum tree album. The rest makes up more than enough for it, though.

i dont usually come on to coment on things... but I bought this last night and I was moved to comment here... This music is some of the best stuff ive heard in a long time, it both captures the essence of OT and adds a whole new sound and dimension.. This is peak Ed right here. i am very grateful that they released this since it is so deeply powerful music and very cohesive.. This sounds like an A+ ozrics album and more.. I love this so much, Thank you Ed! Also thanks for the 24bit version... I love 24bit music and having this in 24/44 is a blessing... Everyone should have this
