I recently reviewed the recently-released The Ocean album, ‘Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic’ for Abrasive Noise. Read a snippet below.

Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic is, for me, an album of two halves. That’s not to say that conceptually Phanerozoic II is intended to have two halves, but more to say that the first four tracks on the LP stand above the next four and for me that’s a bit disheartening, considering the standard set by 2018’s Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic.
