3 stars Odd Logic moves in mysterious ways...

The brand new Odd Logic album is a bit of a mystery. It contains of 5 very long pieces of music. Average length is around 13 minutes. One of the songs are even over 20 minutes long. In other words, very ambitious.

The music here is modern progressive metal with a lot of cyber metal infused. That means dirty sounding bass, guitars and drums which has been downtuned. Cyber music from inside a big machine in other words. The vocals is pretty similar to George Michael, though. George Michael from Wham! fame, that is. The music has a lot of film and sound effects too. There is also a film included in this album too. A secret movie, that is. Instructions on their Myspace site.

The music itself is chopping and changing between downtuned heavy guitar passages, sound samples from movies (I presume) and some clear instrumental parties taken from symphonic prog. The sound is big and so is this album. It is a big sounding album and a very heavy album too. Minimalism is not a word I would use here.

The quality of the songs are good throughout. I am not one of these cyber prog metal fans, I gladly admit. But the clean sounding melody bits here are great. The blasting bits where Odd Logic is trying to scare of the crows outside my office window (and succeeding !) is not to my liking. This is an contrast filled album between the beauty and the beast. I quite like it, but that's it.
