What links? When Erpnotes@Erplanddotorg was happening they were all released to the fans on how many disks? I think I got 6 or was it 11? Stored away now and probably not all together. I'm pretty sure were talking about the same tracks so in effect they have been released just not mastered. I think it would be more accurate to say *outtakes*. Jazzricy Vibricules for everyone! And did I tell you all I won the first 8 original releases on tapes including Erpland, Strangitude. What a pretty rainbow they all make. $5! At my NSS grotto auction. For all of them!
"Superultrasubsonic, psychedelic jazzy, sci-fi spacey, metal ambient acid punk, ROCKIN' folk grass music isn't for everyone but it's for me. And one more thing Reggae is never wrong."
Even though I've already voted, I've reached my final decision; it's easier to decide which albums I don't like as much as the rest: Ethereal cereal, because of the sound and There is nothing, because I can't get into it. The rest are all great and my favourite ones depend on the mood. There.
Time for a VHS/DVD vote? Or maybe after the Erpland and Strangeitude reissues? Sunrise is fantastic, just had a quick live fix. Four years without an Ozrics gig is a very, VERY long time, so I've resorted to substitutes.
Too hard and too pointless..... The choice that we have doesn't need to be limited or questioned. It's all about what flavour you feel like on that particular day. It's something to do though I suppose!

This is going to sound crazy, but I vote Swirly Termination.
I think it's a really solid collection of songs, and some (like Steep and Pyoing) are from and earlier time period, yet still sit well alongside tracks like Space Out and Far Dreaming. I wouldn't say I have a problem with any particular Ozrics release, but my favorite songs are scattered throughout their many, many albums - this just happens to be the one collection where I feel it's solid all the way through, which is ironic considering it's an odds and ends b-sides album not put together by the band. I acknowledge that a lot of my favorite Ozric tunes are on different albums, but if we're just judging solely on albums here, I think this one wins hands down based on the fact that I don't really see a weak track on here.
I think Arborescence is a totally overlooked album. It's superb and has some of the most beautiful and organic sounds. Some of the sounds (as a band and as compositions) that they acheive on it are some of the best of their career. My personal favourite. Also, the live version of Pixel Dream on Pyramidion is one of the best Ozrics recordings of any kind ever.
