4 stars One of the many releases by the prolific and wonderful metal band Symphony X This one is not their best. Not even close. This album is clearly not even great for the majority. In fact, only one of the eight tracks is actually better than 'passable'. The first seven tracks are generic metal, no way around it, they barely stand out from the rest of the genre (if at all). However?

The title track.

The Odyssey.

The 26 minute wonder of prog metal.

This track is absolutely brilliant. It follows the story of Homer's Odyssey, and does it beautiful justice. Beautiful orchestral passages, ripping metal guitars, wonderful melodies?this has it all!

The track is a beautiful masterpiece, the rest is clearly not.

4 stars.
