AllMusic Review by

1994's Odyssee, like its predecessor An Irony of Fate, again finds Love Like Blood at the apex of its skill. The band's immaculately executed goth rock is produced with expert attention to detail, resulting in a richly orchestrated gothic masterwork. Guitarist Mark Wheeler, who seems to be leading the band, adorns each song with loads of texture, from muscular hard rock power chording to pristine, echo-drenched nylon string segments. Growling singer Yorck Eysel is at his dramatic best, sounding beautiful and threatening at the same time. From the haunting opener "Feedback" to the hurtling "Fallacious World," each song is memorable. Along with An Irony of Fate, Odyssee is absolutely essential goth, and represents the very best of Love Like Blood.
