Still, the band should be granted for their long and continuous belief in their music. For a long time, they were obliged to produce their own music in the form of self-recorded and distributed cassettes before they finally signed a deal with a record company. But it doesn't make their music better. Repetitive for almost over six minutes if you would exclude the fine guitar break towards the end. It's fine when you're there but that's it. Some Indian chants during the reggae-ish again "White Rhino Tea" won't be more convincing, I'm afraid.
Just like the jungle closing track. Actually, this might well be the more interesting OT's work so far. Five out of ten, but I can hardly consider this as a good album.

Ed Wynne's writing is more melodious and less jam-oriented. World music colors Chinese, African, Amazonian can be found in the four last tracks. The sound quality is better than on the other releases in this series, as is the overall quality of the songs and, even though it lacks the fast-paced energy found on some material on There Is Nothing and Live Ethereal Cereal, it remains overall the best album from the band's early days.

Merv's excellent drum work no doubt played a key role in the cohesion of this band and which is also evident in subsequent recordings.
Jon's flutes and woodwinds expands their sound and gave them much needed stage presence. This is also the first recording where their sound and varied influences started to cohere. More tunes sounding more like a band effort with less of the experimental noodling that plagued the earlier releases.
The production also takes a step forward but still needs improvement. Sliding Gliding Worlds has many of their classic tunes that cover a wide variety of sounds. Ozric Tentacles went on a tear after this and this is IMO where it started. While very little sets apart these early releases as they are all a conglomeration of Hawkwind inspired space rock with the prog leanings, elements of jazz-fusion, electronica, dub and ambient sound effects, this one has a more chilled out vibe to it compared to the preceding albums that ranged from 'Erpsongs' to 'There Is Nothing.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the gram Vinyl release of Sliding Gliding Worlds on Discogs.
