About Jurassic Shift

“Jurassic Shift remains a creative peak.” Classic Rock

Jurassic Shift is the fourth studio album by English band Ozric Tentacles. It was first released in 1993 on the band’s own label on Dovetail Records. In 1998 a re-release came from Snapper Music, with one additional track. The album was released yet again in 2004, this time paired with Erpland in Snapper Music’s Recall 2CD series. 2008 saw a remastered two CD/DVD set with extra tracks and live performances, plus a 24-page booklet.

“The Ozrics are a truly curious bunch in that they have this unerring tendency and uncanny ability to make great scads of progressive and space music that has true heart. There are very few times when one can connect fabulous technical skill with such a strongly emotional core, and never mind the mystical triggers.” — Steven McDonald, Allmusic
