While a lot of classic bands have gotten back together in the last decade or so, few reunions have been as satisfying as The Zombies. Their stone-cold classic Odessey & Oracle was released in 1968 to lackluster sales and minimal attention (even though "Time of the Season" was an era-defining hit), but has gone on to be celebrated as one of the greatest albums of all time. So to see the surviving original members reteam to tour behind that album -- now given its proper due by the public -- is not only a treat, but an example of an injustice in music history finally being righted.
In continuing to celebrate that masterpiece, The Zombies recently released Odessey: The Zombies in Words and Images, a book featuring new interviews about and artwork inspired by the album. While perusing the new Odessey & Oracle artwork (inspired by that album's lush psychedelic cover), the group wondered what it would be like to see it come to life.
Enter the official lyric video for album opener "Care of Cell 44," a lovely, lively animated lyric video for the Zombies' classic.
