5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars. 10 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Odeon' is a nighttime album. The ambient tracks 'Zur Guten Ambience' and 'Soda' are dark and atmospheric, and for me the unexpected standouts, while 'Heatwave' is tense and slow-building. The closing track, 'Bonjour', that begins with street-level ambience, feels strangely claustrophobic, but emerges into one of their most beautiful tracks. Overall, the album is well-worth a listen. What makes this album different is the range of sounds - some very ambient stuff (often featuring far away voice and street sound), but also close, bassy, snappy drums. The evolution of these songs is interesting, again, 'Heatwave', is interesting for its structure.

The album features 6 vocal tracks, 5 of which are male vocals. The best of these is 'What If', a slick acoustic soul number. The song is catchy (but stylish) and contains a nice mix of acoustic sounds and electronic sounds. The male vocal songs vary in success: 'Meixner' has a decent groove and sounds like it could've been pinched from 'Dehli9', while 'Stuttgart' is another relaxed vocal song that again reminds me of the vocal tracks on that album - there's a nice electric guitar line on this and you can picture yourself chilling out, riding round a european city to this track. Less successful are 'In My Brain' and 'Jayjay', which feature abrasive, slightly tongue-in-cheek vocal performances, although there is plenty to like on the instrumentation side. 'Heatwave' works well, building slowly and enhancing the ambient, cityscape feel of the album. Overall, these tracks are fine, but you feel that one (or both) of 'Jayjay' and 'In My Brain' is too much.

Surprisingly the best song on the album is the shortest: 'Soda' almost reminds me of Monolake's 'hongkong', and is one of their richest ambient tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it. 15 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
In common with some other reviewers I have to confess to being initially put off by the vocals on this album. Pretentious, overbearing and a bit daft were my first thoughts ("Apple pies, apple pies, we're all eating apple pies"). This one's not for me I thought (can't complain, No Hassle was brilliant and at least they're trying something new). But then I listened again, and if you've enjoyed Tosca's stuff in the past, I would recommend you do the same. Somehow, as you get into the album, the music and the mood take over pushing the vocals back into the mix. What you're left with is an absorbing, dark, beautiful album, full of unexpected moments, unexpected instrumentation (loads of guitars!) and one that is much more coherent than it first appears. I've got to say I've found it well worth the effort (and it's worth considering the deluxe version available through the !K7 website which includes the equally beguiling live, and vocal free, cd).

2.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by Vocals 6 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
Despite the usual great production and laid back beats I found this pretty hard to listen to, largely due to the vocals on most tracks.
Tosca can do vocals- check out the excellent Dehli 9. Here however despite technical proficiency for the most part they just don't work, sounding out of place, irritating or just plain weird. Some particularly dreadful lyrics in places don't help either.
When I'd all but given up on the album the last couple of tracks- 'Cavallo' and 'Bonjour' came along. These are easily the best on the whole record and give a frustrating glimpse of what could have been another classic Tosca release after the excellent 'No Hassle'. Unfortunately I can't recommend it based on just 2 songs. Pity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Odeon Tosca 22 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great Stuff from these guys from Austria . Quite retro with an 80's feel/vibe which they have fine tuned for a very modern feel. One of my favourite plays at the moment
