4 stars Impressive prog metal band. Another almost masterpice from this great band. Among the best from today. The odyssey is another stunning album not only in their catalog but in entire prog metal scene. They continue the manner of playing and composing like on previouses albums but with a more metalized sound, heavier than Symphony X have ever 'till that day. The last album from 2007 is even heavier than this one. It is a concept album inspired by Greek mythology. This album is an avalanche of sounds with a lots of guitars made by the master of the band Michael Romeo, stunning keys from Michael Pinella, and the drumer is super. Above all these musicians is Russel Allen, great voice, jawdropping vocals on every piece. So every track is damn good but Inferno and Wicked are my fav from here, full of aggresive guitars, complex structures and fluid keyboard lines. So if you arefan of bands like Shadow Gallery, even Yngwie Malmsteen (in places) The Odyssey is just perfect for you! 4 stars for this super album, with all that i don't consider their best, i think the Dive wings of tragedy is the best they ever done so far.
