The Ozrics were basically ready to take the world by storm once this recording surfaced in 1993, and though endless debate exists as to which album has yielded their finest moments, JURASSIC SHIFT certainly ranks right up there. A full-blown assault on the senses, all of the Ozrics' trademark motifs practically leap out of the speakers in all their explosive glory. Let fade the whispers of Gong, Steve Hillage, and Hawkwind-on JURASSIC SHIFT, the Ozrics came into their own element. From the burbling sequencer patterns, shuttlecraft synths, and arcing guitars of the opening "Sun Hair," to the intense jazzy spacerock of "Stretchy" (featuring some of Merv Pepler's most brilliant percussive moments--his sense of rhythmic timing and the fusillade of accents he adds is nothing short of breathtaking), and the awesome bassline walk of the title track, JURASSIC SHIFT fairly short-circuits your progressive rock fusebox. Dazzling in the extreme.
