MICHAEL OAKLEY – Odyssey (2021) *0dayrox EXCLUSIVE*

Take a look at this neon-filled cover artwork… yes MICHAEL OAKLEY‘s new album “Odyssey” is retro-Eighties stuff. And the kind we like it. While this Scottish started as a synthwave artist years ago composing various soundtracks, for “Odyssey” Oakley changed completely the focus.
Being an accomplished vocalist as well, “Odyssey” is ‘song-format’ album with melodic, poppy songs, complete instrumentation – there’s 4 electric guitarists, and a couple of guest lead singers to provide variation – and that sound that takes you back to the ’80s but also the ’90s.
The songwriting, production and musicianship is fantastic for an album recorded 2021 trying to emulate that big budget 1986-1992 major production. And Oakley succeeds.
