The OTC were one of several Athens, Georgia–area psych-pop bands who spent the 1990s synthesizing the 1960s. At best, they used tape-loop gristle and other noisy marginalia to throw bright, melody-driven songs off-balance; at worst, they punished you with ten-minute trips into backward static and slowed-down farts. The trouble was pacing: "experiments" dominate the second half of both these double albums, after you've spent the first half having fun. Quarantined to bonus discs -- as they are here -- it all works beautifully after midnight.
