Odyssey by Hayley Westenra was released Oct 18, 2005 on the Decca label. Originally released in September 2005, Hayley Westenra's second international album was re-released in April 2006 with only 14 instead of the original 16 tracks. Westenra sings a wide selection of pop-oriented compositions, including Joni Mitchell's "Both Side Now," Simon & Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair," and "May It Be" (as featured in The Lord of the Rings), all with the minimum of backing music, mainly just a pure soprano voice beautifully soaring like a bird and leaving its cage behind. Odyssey contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

||What an Odyssey|
This Odyssey - this second fantastic journey - for Hayley and for all of us is about to begin.... 'Prayer' opens with unaccompanied vocals from Hayley and the Conventus Choir and immediately conveys an atmosphere of peace and serenity.

||Congrats! Youve won!|
Absolutely amazing! Her voice has matured so much! Anyone who listens to these songs will find that there is nothing that can compare to her talent!

Listeners who are expecting to hear part #2 to Hayley's best-selling international debut, "Pure" will by quickly, if very pleasantly, disillusioned.
