Odessey And OracleThe Zombies
A perfect example of a cult masterpiece. This is one of those gems I discovered in high school scouring through the RS 500 and ratings guides. Just so many good songs, the harmonies are fantastic, the instrumentation is beautiful. Wild to think the Butcher’s Tale was released as a single, just shows you how the record companies completely failed on marketing this one. Also sad that the commercial failure resulted in the band breaking up. Another one of the great what ifs of music history. The album is such a joy front to back every time I rediscover it.
