3 stars Symphony X is kind of like the little brother that never got the attention the big brother got, Dream Theater. Odyssey is an album that is very different, but I don't always know that the uniqueness of it is necessary or has a specific purpose. My look on the band is that they are metal with keyboards. Take out the keys and this would be more or less a metal band. This isn't to say that they aren't interesting or creative, but they've done little to develop themselves as songwriters and are pretty happy with the niche they are in. The best track here is Inferno, though its hardly progressive.

An album with several hits and strong points, but lacking the creative vision of a remarkable album.
