Great band! Here's a review I got from http://www.planetmellotron.com/revo1.htm

Ocean were a deeply obscure outfit, nothing to do with the French metal crew, whose eponymous '81 debut looks like it was made by a bunch of 19 year-olds. They produced a mini-masterpiece in Melody; entirely instrumental, it's (funnily enough) intensely melodic, with slight ELP and Focus influences, with much piano, although they suddenly lurch into a jazz feel on Melody Bass, sounding slightly out of place. Their, er, 'theme song', Ocean is an absolutely fabulous classically-inspired piece that'll have all you '70s prog fiends salivating like rabid dogs, and the rest of the album's almost as good. Why is this album so bloody obscure?

Their Mellotron use (player unknown) is slightly odd, as they seem to use synth strings, except for a high string melody line on Wild Pig. Otherwise, it's choirs (Katrin, Wild Pig and Slow & Chromatic) and flutes (7 To 8 Melody), with especially good use on Slow & Chromatic. Although the 'Tron use isn't its best feature (while not being at all bad), if you see a copy of this, BUY.
