Good music, singer and production but in the long run this is a boring CD. The songs just don't have hooks that make you want to sing along with them. Fans of Fates Warning may like this band.

Like most prog metal bands they can sing and play their instruments as well as anybody. Like most prog metal bands their song writing is very weak and their caught up in this concept cd crap. Write some decent songs.

All due respect to the posts above, but "The Odyssey" is an amazing work of art from an equally amazing band. The artistry shown on this disk is incredible and yes, I find myself singing along to the chorus of "AccoladeII". I think you will too. A+.

This is one of the best records of the prog/metal genre. This band, though unknown outside of the underground scene, give Dream Theater & Fates Warning a run for their money. This has to be their best work to date. Michael Romeo tears it up & displays chops that will put his contemporaries to shame. Once you pick up this record, it will set the bar so high, no other "progressive" record will even come close to matching it! You've been warned. Now go ahead & hear for yourself. SIXXSWINE

Did you ever get the feeling the some metal musicians are just to good for their own good? These guys are technically proficient, but their songs are just so overly technical that they have nothing memorable. Once the CD is over, I can't even remember one song.

I have to say that I was very impressed with this band. This is the first album I have bought from them and it is spending a lot of time in my CD players. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Dream Theater and Fates Warning. The Odyssey is worth the price of the CD to me alone. Great album.

More Noodling here than Italian Restaurant at Noon! They have Chops galore but not much hooks...like a lot of Prog music.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 4, 2015 at 22:00
For me this is one of the best releases of the band..a very technic way of playing Power Metal with some Prog moves here and there(this ain't exactly Prog Metal as described on the label)..."Awakenings" is my highlight...tracks 2,3,6 & 8 stand proud as well...recommended album...91/100
