3 stars This Dutch progrock band is rooted in the late Eighties but it lasted until '96 before ODYSSICE made a CAMEL inspired mini-CD (four songs) entitled "Moondrive". In 2000 ODYSSICE released the CD entitled "Impressions", a strong, 24-carat symphonic rock album with obvious echoes from CAMEL but also some ethnic elements. It is in the vein of the mini-CD "Moondrive" but with more mature and alternating compositions. Jeroen delivers a lush keyboardsound (piano, Mellotron - and Moog samples) in some songs but the focus is on Bastiaan Peeter with his sensitive guitarplay and the use of a guitar- synthesizer (spectacular - and surprising sounds). The progress of this band is emphasized by the integration of ethnic elements from Scotland, China and India, very beautiful and a proove that ODYSSICE is on the way to develop their own sound. I'm sure this album will please a lot of symphomaniacs!
