Stylistically, they're miles apart, but in terms of sheer spaciness,
they're pretty 'Windy.  Jurassic Shift was the first OT LP I picked up,
just after I heard Space Bandits (which was just after I'd got
Levitation, which was just after I'd thought I'd died and gone to heaven
after listening to Space Ritual), and my first thoughts were of a
seventies-feel Hawkwind with nineties technology and techniques.
But after that, I realized HW were just one of a big list of influences
on OT.
