Usually, when an artist breaks out and records a solo album, it's something completely different from what you'd expect, but with Ed's album he hasn't let us down. Its high quality psychedelic rock. The same goes for his son's band, Silas Neptune, with his album 'The Scales of Tahuti.' Ed and Silas also have an Ozric's spinoff band called Noden's Ictus, and they have some fine psych rock releases as well. All are highly recommended.
Thanks COT (and Noni) - I'll check those out
