This is the second that i hear of this band, and Im continually impressed with the versatility and originality in the composition of music. They incorporate a lot of styles of music and mixed perfectly with progressive space rock.

Excellent pressing. Both records are flat and came out of the jacket pristine; I didn't even need to dust them! The sound is great too. This is my favourite Ozric album.
My version doesn't have the white panels at the bottom of the back cover, although I bought it in the 00s.
I happen to own three versions of this, the 1990 original on Dovetail, the 1998 reissue on Snapper, and the 2010 Snapper reissue with the CD, and additional DVD that includes Live at the Fridge (recorded in 1991 and originally released on VHS without the band knowing about it). On the 1990 original, I have noticed about a minute of the synth intro to "Eternal Wheel" is missing. On the Snapper reissues, this song starts off with just the synths, then after a while the drums kick in. On the Dovetail original I own the cut starts with the synth part with drums right at the beginning. I know there's another Dovetail CD with a different barcode scan number, mines is "7 81588 01002 4". I start to wonder if that was a pressing defect, and was corrected in the second pressing? It appears that the Dovetail version with the barcode number I mentioned here is the original.

I used to own that faulty Dovetail press. I've read about it elsewhere so I'm guessing it was just a batch of copies with that defect.
Light years away from 80s music (even alternative one!), at the beginning of the decade Ozric Tentacles awakened long trippy jam sessions to color underground English festivals. In independent music world psychedelic sounds were still alive, but - lost freedom, complexity and extemporization - they had become an experiment to enrich post punk and new wave philosophy. Ozric Tentacles homage to hallucinogen sounds of 70s progressive space rock is overflowing and in constant motion, indeed. After years of self-produced audio cassettes, Erpland is the definitive maturation of their ironic and funny instrumental music, without any intellectual claim. As a floating bubble Erpland wanders in psych cosmos, meeting Gong craziness, Hawkwind excesses and Tangerine Dream electronic meditations. Perfect tribute to hippie philosophy.
I don't think I can add on much more about Erpland what hasn't already been said by Ozric fans everywhere. If you're an Ozric fan, you already have it, much like the Pink Floyd fan owning Dark Side of the Moon, Beatles fan with Sgt. Pepper or Led Zeppelin fan with the fourth release. Plain and simple as that. But this 2010 Snapper edition includes a bonus DVD. It's the first ever DVD appearance of the out of print Live at the Fridge VHS. What's interesting was the band was unaware it was actually released without their knowing (it was disguised as a Dovetail release). They intended this 1991 performance to be released, but somehow got out of their hands. In 2001 they found out about it, put a "cease and desist", and thanks to them now having full rights to it, decided to include it with this current version of Erpland.I have to tell you they can certainly hold their own live, but it also has plenty of drawbacks. The picture quality is rather low-budget, even by 1991 standards (big budget Hollwood movies and television programs of the time had much better video quality). On the other hand, you don't expect DVD quality (never mind Blu-Ray) from something filmed in 1991 in the VHS-era (released on VHS originally). But what's important is the musical quality, just as great as the studio originals, where they also do a few things not on the originals, and even a live jam found nowhere else. I'm glad in 1991 they hadn't forgotten their early cassettes either, as they do a version of "Og-Ha-Be" from 1985's Tantric Obstacles. Other than not the best picture quality, the other big problem is the band goes WAY overboard on visuals. Way too much annoying flickering and flashing certain to cause epileptic seizures to anyone prone to it (remember, this was years before that Pokemon movie caused seizures to many people that this practice finally received negative publicity). Compare this to 2002's Live at the Pongmaster's Ball or 2008's Sunrise Festival, which have much great picture quality, and greater restraint on visuals (but still plenty of it and much more pleasant to look at).Watching this bonus DVD might be a bit hard, but it's basically worth owning for historical reasons, as this is the earliest Ozric video footage you can easily get (anything earlier would probably be someone shooting the band performing live at a festival with their camcorder). It also captures the band at their peak too.
Erpland is considered the peak of the Ozrics career by the majority of their fans. In my opinion the honour is totally deserved. Despite the fact that they have released many musically accomplished albums and their style hasn’t changed dramatically over time, there are many reasons why Erpland stands at the top. First and foremost, the tracks themselves. Some are wild and crazy, like the title track with its flute climax, others spacey and floaty like one of my all-time favourites Crackerblocks and others still laced with an ethnic spice, like A Gift Of Wings. There is even actual singing on Iscence. And there is also, of course, Eternal Wheel. It had first appeared on the There Is Nothing cassette in ambient drum’n’bass form, but this version is absolutely amazing, taking many different forms during its eight and a half minutes. An aura of focused intent permeates the proceedings like never before.The sheer variety of styles presented, including the experimentalism of the tapes is breathtaking and there is probably a bit more – and more varied – ethnic than the rest of their albums. The expansive nature of the album gives it a grandiosity the band haven’t managed to match since. Still to this day it usually gets the lion’s share on stage.Then, the people; apart from the core of Ed-Joie-Merv-Roly-Jon-Paul-Marcus, there are a few old fiends: Tom Brooks, the synth player from the early-mid 80s, does ‘reggae bubbles’ (they are like normal bubbles but with dreadlocks). Steve Everett, who had worked both with the Ozrics and Merv in Wooden Baby and Eat Static, does the sampling on Mysticum Arabicola and Valley Of A Thousand Thoughts. And even ‘Generator’ John Schuchard, the drummer on The Bits’ Wreltch and the Ozrics off-shoot The Ullulators (with Joie and Gavin among others), serves some tea and bashes his tambourine. Most of the extended Ozrics family gathered here for one momentous occasion.And there’s the pretty impressive cover too. It compliments the music perfectly and creates wonderful mental images. The original gatefold has got some cool pictures of the band live, in a couple of which they have painted faces! How free festival is that? And right in the middle the obligatory mandala. As far as production values are concerned, this is how I see it: some of the sounds used are indeed dated, but a) this gives the album extra charm and b) the total effect of the music is, without a doubt, timeless. The band were on a roll: starting from a free form space jam band, which would just travel and play anywhere anytime, they had managed to create both some magnificent music and a label to channel this music through. They had experience of the studio they were using, as they had recorded Pungent Effulgent there a few months before. Even the location of the studio itself was ideal – situated in the fields in Wales, where plenty of fungi grew. Everything was set for a masterpiece. And Ozric Tentacles delivered their magnum opus.When you reach the top of your game of course, there’s usually one way to go. The next album, Strangeitude, was musically maybe even more accomplished, but containing only six tracks it was impossible to come anywhere near the diversity and wealth of Erpland. And this diversity combined with the exquisite quality of the music has made it the one perfect example of Ozricness.10/10
