After being unavailable and forgotten for just about seven years, my debut album 'Odyssey' will now become available once again. This time through iTunes, cdon.com, skivbolaget.se and a few other online music stores.
As with the 2008 rerelease of 'Tabula Rasa', 'Odyssey' has had a slight makeover. This time the changes are fewer and more subtle than the 'Tabula Rasa' revamp. But I couldn't resist making changes. Like for instance removing my own voice from the transition sections and replacing it with a synthetic one. Also new guitars have been added along with delay effects and a new mastering.
I have had a lot of second thoughts about this rerelease, and for a long time I didn't think it would be a good idea. Being the first album I recorded and produced, for a long time 'Odyssey' sounded very immature to me. It still does. However it may serve very well as a document of where I was at the time. Both sonically and technically.
'Odyssey' was created through a series of improvisations I did in year 2000. I used to work on it late at night, and for most part I switched all my synths on, hit some keys and let myself go with whatever came out.
Originally 'Odyssey' was released in january 2001.
The revamp can be purchased 'here'.
