I think we have to thank Lion Music for this initiative to re-release the debut album Guitar Odyssey from Milan Polak. Originally released in 1995 this album doesn’t sound outdated and the music on it is on a very high level of craftmanship and skill. The songs are varied, well written and with enough change and it’s obvious when you listen to this record that Milan Polak takes very well control over different styles. Swinging rock’n’rollish riffs (Lights, Camera’s Action), fusion (Chainreaction), acoustic (Could’ve Been Love) and agressive (Tendonitus, Witchdance). One of the songs which represents the skills of this guitarwizard from Austria is Vinka 611. A jazzy beginning that unfolds in a heavy progressive middle piece where even a saxonphone solo is there to spice things up and Joey Tafolla is present for a guest appearance. I think it’s fair to say that Milan Polak is capable of competing with greats like Tafolla, Friedman and Mc Alpine but besides this Milan has some sort of style of his own and it’s exactly that which makes the difference in making Guitar Odyssey one of the best instrumental albums of 2005.
