Powderfinger's Odyssey Number Five is a slightly off-base perspective into the world of mid-'90s American grunge and its conspicuous debt to Neil Young. The title track takes Placebo -- sneers and all -- and places them in a pair of stadium trousers; single "My Happiness" drowns a hip-hop-inspired guitar riff better than most bands of their stature.

i fell in love with this band's music while visiting australia. i'm so excited to see them here in america where others can experience such wonderful music.
This album is impressive! Every single song is good. It's good as a whole album, and the tracks are good separately.
