5 stars Easily one of the band's best albums-- if not THE best, doing everything so right that it's hard to find anything reasonable to complain about (unless of course one simply dislikes their sound). "Jurassic Shift" grabs hold of the listener and takes them on one of the coolest and genuinely exciting musical trips out there.

Throughout "Jurassic Shift" we're given an elaborate blend of sounds, typically performed with the following elements-- deep soundscapes, set against groovy bass work, with a variety of bizarre sounds or ethnic-sounding instruments... and Ed Wyne's energizing guitar, which rips with a kinetic flair that sounds positively out of place when what one expects from a "space rock" band.

The end result is instrumental fun and excitement. I am sure any electronica snob can name a dozen bands more creative and influential than the Ozrics... but good luck finding any more genuinely entertaining to listen to.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 5 Lyrics/Vocals: NA Style/Emotion/Replay: 5
