Their Odessey and Oracle is considered a pop classic, but unfortunately the Zombies had disbanded by the record's 1968 release. Four decades later, eternal versions of that album's "This Will Be Our Year," "A Rose for Emily," "Beechwood Park," "Care of Cell 44," and "Time of the Season" make this 25-song live reunion of founding members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent worth the effort. Though no other Zombie was aboard for the 2004 project (including underrated guitarist/vocalist Chris White), Argent's burning keyboards, Blunstone's inimitable voice, and skilled backing musicians assure that the entire band receives its due, particularly on the Odessey selections and nuggets from the singles collection, including Argent's "Tell Her No" and "Indication," Blunstone's "Just Out of Reach," and White's "I Love You." The harmonic backing vocals that littered the Zombies catalog are astoundingly intact, with only the occasional ramble into Argent's eponymous post-Zombies band (remember "Hold Your Head Up"?) left to clutter the sequencing. (A 16-song DVD of performances from the Bloomsbury Theatre show is also available, including multiple camera angles, immaculate sound, and four of the CD's five Odessey and Oracle numbers.) --Scott Holter

This C.D. proves to be the exception to the rule, and not suprisingly, because in Colin Blunstone and Road Argent we have two master craftsmen whos talent has not diminished one iota in over 40 years.It is hard to comprehend that the youthful voice and incredible keyboard skills of the two principals have been with us since the early 1960's.
Great songs.Wonderful singing and outstanding musicianship.
Talent is permanent and ageless.
Not with this album! This is all music, all the way through....no chat!
Classic Zombies tracks played perfectly (can this really be live?!), Colin Blunstone singing Argent classics - Hold Your Head Up & God Gave Rock n Roll To You - totally awesome! Some of the best of Colin's solo material played to perfection - Misty Roses with a string quartet - beautiful!
The band: Colin, Rod Argent, Jim & Steve Rodford and Keith Aiery sound fresh, exciting and their enthusiasm shines through.
The sound quality is one of the best I've ever heard on a live album. It really deserves a 10 star rating!
