Name: Space Odyssey. Album title: The Astral Episode. Cover: Science Fiction look. The band's style: classic hard rock with the keyboard as the leading instrument. Sound bizarre? It's really not, the second album of this exceptional band didn't come from out of nowhere. It catches your ear immediately and it doesn't take the easy way, but uses some progressive elements as well. Captain Kirk at the mic, Nils Patrik Johansson in everyday life, was clearly influences by Dio, but adds his own style to the mix. And shipmate Richard Andersson creates complex, varied melodies on his control pad, which sound like a space ship navigating through a field of asteroids: left, right, up, down, made it!
Undamaged the shuttle reaches the space station, ready for the next adventure.
