4 stars Tasty new offering from Dutch Progsters, Odyssice.

Seven excellent tracks of Camel-esque music, played by superb musicians. All nice n' long.

Be interesting to see what my brother makes of this one, seeing as he's a Camel fanatic....

It's all instrumental of course. Vocals would probably ruin a band like this, although maybe a FEW, and I mean a FEW, lyrics would have been nice. Suggest a Genesis style 'Los Endos' closing vocal next time chaps ?

There's something to savor on every track, including a bass solo that's rarely heard these days.

I was a bit worried about the last number, 'Swank' which could have been a horrible mispelling in it's own right let alone a bastardisation of the Gensis track 'Squonk' also from Trick of the Tail. It isn't, but it could well be a Hackett/Banks outtake.

If you like Camle/trick era Gensis, Also Eden, and similar you'll enjoy this.

Oh, and best of all, the band look like the bloke next door.
