Odyssey (album)

With his third singer in four albums, Odyssey was released by guitar virtuoso Yngwie J. Malmsteen in March of 1988. Joe Lynn Turner sings on most of the songs, with the three instrumentals being Bite the Bullet - a brief intro to Riot..., Memories - a nice outro to the whole album, and Krakatau - a six+ minute piece that contains many themes Yngwie still plays in concert today. The songs were instrumental and are strongly influenced by 1970s prog rock and heavy metal, such as Deep Purple's Machine Head or Emerson Lake and Palmer's Tarkus. .
