"they play solid seventies-style melodic hard rock ... while at other times they are channelling Sabbath, or George Thorogood"
2021: A LAZY ODYSSEY review - Gonzo Magazine UK
2021: A LAZY ODYSSEY is an album of contrasts with the instrumental ‘Polly’s Lament’, classic rock anthems ‘Wait For Me’, ‘Perdition Dance’, ‘My Hand (Peaky Blinders)’, ‘Pretty As A Flower’ and ‘No No No’, the heavier System of Down-esque ‘Falling In To You’ with interesting time changes, and blues rock number ‘I Don’t Know Who I Am’.
The album title is a play on the title of the 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. In keeping with the movies theme the album is introduced with our version of the classical instrumental Also Sprach Zarathustra (R Strauss), the movie’s theme song (check out the timpanis). However, this is definitely not a concept album!
2021: A LAZY ODYSSEY was recorded at Roundhead Studios, produced by Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Devilskin, The Feelers, Opshop, Troy Kingi).
Although a single album we have a gatefold cover with epic artwork and all the lyrics. The vinyl is heavyweight at 180gms.
