Powderfinger - Odyssey Number 5

Powderfinger are a popular Australian rock band, having received a number of awards at the ARIAS, including best Rock Album and Album of the Year. This is their 4th album, a softer rock piece that focuses on various political as well as personal issues. However, it has been stated by the band that although songs like "Like a Dog" (incidentally my favorite song on the album) was about a political issue, they didn't see it that way, just as themselves merely voicing their opinions. That being said, it's not necessary to understand the context to appreciate the album for what it is - a solid rock album.
