Review Of The Olympic Symphonium – Chance To Fate (Forward Music)

Olympic SymphoniumFredericton group The Olympic Symphonium are onto something good. Not to dismiss any of their previous efforts however the group seems to have found the perfect mix in the 11 songs gathered on Chance To Fate. Although the record’s tone is largely melancholic and reserved (think Scud Mountain Boys-inspired, tracks like All In Your Head, Weak At The Knees and the haunting Stronger really help the album take flight. A compelling collection of intimate song arrangements that easily endear themselves to the listener, Chance To Fate is the perfect soundtrack to our seemingly never-ending winter.
