This is one of those rare "6 Star" CDs that only the lucky few ever even find. I have been progressing from run-of-the-mill "Rock & Roll" since I "discovered" Dream Theater about a year ago (only eighteen years late). Before then, I was certain that Aerosmith & Led Zep & Black Sabbath & Deep Purple & Van Halen, etc represented the best "rock" music on the planet. After being blown away by Dream Theater, I began tracking down "other" groups by reading DT reviews on Amazon, and "discovered" various prog groups, eventually getting hooked on such non-commercial groups as Sonata Arctica (consistently the best), Brainstorm, Kamelot, Symphorce, Stratovarious, etc, which I now KNOW represents the best "rock" music on the planet. If you like any of the foregoing groups, and can handle "heavy guitar" metal with driving double bass and first class keyboards, bass and vocals, take the time to "discover" Space Odyssey's "Embrace The Galaxy" and you will totally wear out the CD before you get tired of the music. Totally Awesome Rock CD. If you agree, do what I did and buy a couple of extra to give to special friends, because the music world would be a far better place with less of "former" groups and more of the "latter" groups. Long live rock.

"Embrace the galaxy" is the debut album by Swedish neoclassical metal project "Space Odyssey" originally released in 2003. Having disbanded his previous project "Majestic" Swedish keyboard virtuoso Richard Andersson put together his second musical outtfit "Space odyssey". Much like "Majestic", "Space odyssey" would also explore the musical genre of neoclcassical metal with Richard at the helm, yet "...Odyssey" would turn out a more collective effort than "Majestic" as all instruments here contribute equally on the song performances and focus has shifted away from the keyboards.

The line up of "Space Odyssey" is also a treat- an all star line up by today's standards featuring the late great bass vituoso Marcel Jacob (ex-"YJM Rising Force", "Talisman") and vocal giant-to-be Nils Patrik Johansson ("Astral Doors", "Lion's Share") along with guitarist Magnus Nilsson and drummer Zoltan Csorsz. The songs are incredibly well developed with a certain progressive essence to them, still nothing too complicated while you get a large amount of melodies and neoclassical scales coming from the keys,guitar and bass. Never the less, it is probably Patrik Johansson's talent and overwhelming vocal attack that steals the show on "Embrace the galaxy", his performance is absolutely devastating with a style that references Dio, Tony Martin and Kal Swan. Favorite tracks include "Emposium", "Despair and pain" and "Embrace the galaxy"

Overall, "Embrace the galaxy" turned out to be a surprising offering by Richard Andersson and co that should rightfully be considered a classic of the neoclassical metal genre. For fans of "Rising force", "Voodoo Circle", "Royal Hunt" and "Silent Force" this is a must!

I have to say Richard Andersson is an incredible keyboarder. I really like the CD. The vocalist is awesome. He has a distinct voice and it sounds different. The arrnagements of the songs are really worth listening to. "A Perfect Day" is an awesome tune. Very melodramatic. He did a great job. One thing I always find with Richard Andersson. He is so close to Yngwie Malmsteen. So if you love Yngwie you have to have this album. Also there is one song on there that totally reminds of a Symphony X song. Great work though. I love the CD.
