Odissea - Odissea (1973)
Another Italian band who released one album and then faded into obscurity together with their album. Where is the band members now, we can only ask ourselves.
We are in classic RPI land here. Italian Progressive Rock. The music is on the more pastoral side here without being neither too heavy or too much influenced by Italian pop. The Italian vocals are very good. Ditto for the mellotron, guitars and piano. They are backed up by bass and drums. The sound is great with this great RPI sound.
Good references for the music on this album is PFM, Genesis and Banco. The music in itself is good throughout. This half an hour long album is an album which will please other fans of RPI too. It lacks a couple of killer tracks though and that is my big gripe with it. Nevertheless; it is a good album. Check it out.
