"Heaven Tonight" / "Riot in the Dungeons"
Released: 1988 (1988)
Odyssey is the fourth studio album by guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, released on 8 April 1988 through Polydor Records. The album reached No. 40 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and remained on that chart for eighteen weeks, as well as reaching the top 50 in five other countries. As of 2014 it remains Malmsteen's highest-charting release on the Billboard 200.
Steve Huey at AllMusic gave Odyssey two stars out of five, calling it "a more subdued, polished collection seemingly designed for mainstream radio airplay", but that it "shows little difference in approach from [Malmsteen's] previous output". He praised Joe Lynn Turner's vocals and Malmsteen's guitar work, but remarked that the latter sounds "constrained and passionless" due in part to his recovery from a near-fatal car accident in 1987.
