4 stars Ah good, an instrumental prog band from Holland. So I sighed, put it on, and then woke up. Odyssice have obviously been playing close attention to Jadis and Camel and have put together an album that may not have vocals but is no less for that. If I had to pick fault it would have to be with the version of "Flower Of Scotland" (which I notice Malcolm pointedly avoids in the press release).

Although the highlight for me and for many will be the guitar playing of Bastiaan Peters, special mention must be made of the keyboard playing of Jeroen van der Wiel who provides the perfect melodic counterpoint. While much of the album is fairly restrained, there are some powerful moments to be heard and the result is an album that is most pleasing to the ear. If this style of prog is appealing then this is a band worth discovering
