THE OCEAN's Precambrian is composed of a mini-CD with 22 minutes playing time entitled 'Hadean/Archaean', and a full-length CD with 62 minutes playing time, entitled 'Proterozoic', both referring to successive geological eons within the Precambrian. The songs are divided into 5 subordinate eras, with the song-titles carrying the names of subordinate geological periods.

Logically, THE OCEAN's 'Hadean/Archaean' is brutal, invidious, complex in its arrangements yet simplistic in its instrumentation, and raw and unpolished in sound, continuing where Aeolian left off.

'Proterozoic' is the more tempered of the 2 albums; still erupting frequently and heavily, but at times yielding way to moments of beauty and sublimity in between. Elaborate in its musical ideas and multi-layered due to its massive instrumentation, dramatic in its arrangements and expansive in sound, »Proterozoic« is an ambitious album of truly epic proportions.
