Odyssey cd cover

Malmsteen, Yngwie J.

Odyssey

This is the album that should have put Yngwie on top. Top to bottom, one of his best and it also features stellar work from the rest of his band. Yngwie manages to bridge the gap between guitar hero and pop-star without sacrificing his credibility or his chops. The interplay between him and his keyboard player are incredible and Joe Lynn Turner never sounded this good anywhere else. Guess you should buy it, huh?

“When faith in saviours turns to doubt, and dreams just seem so far away, don't look back on your failures, don't you ever lose your hope. In a world of saviours you've got nothing but your own heart and soul to bear your crosses if you stumble on the way.”
