Mercury’s Odyssey is an instrumental song by The Olympians. The following commentary is an attempt to make a depiction of its brilliance in English words.
Recommended way of enjoyment: listen to the music while maintaining a connection to the assigned second of each commentary bit.
Starting with a piano and drums combinational dribble while we rapidly ascend into—
A slightly stripped-down quadruple symphony of equal power. The main actors: piano, drums, bass, and—
Welcome, wind instrument. Our previous three-body fellowship continues as if nothing has happened and the whole quartet gives off a feeling of stableness.
Slight sorrow, in four identical stages, gets the upper hand.
Explosion preparation and…
What a blast. The windy protagonist explodes full of bliss and energy. Everything spins around supporting the brass majesty whilst the piano is stealing the performance only by a small bit—an omen of things to come.
Returning into stableness. Heed for the bass's contribution.
With the familiar four-part descent into sadness.
Explosion preparation, but this time—
Anticlimactic. Lack of tension release.
A wobble; latent climax incoming.
Coolness. As if everything is where it’s supposed to be. Universal balance while the keybordial protagonist realises a creative race with no competition.
Brass cry. Fully supported, the piano explores new worlds, unbeknownst to us. Full-blown party around fresh melodies.
Don’t be distracted by the brass voices because you might miss the piano’s sustained majesty.
Shout on the clock.
Final shout just before—
Explosion. Proper this time, as the pianistic transcendentality continues uninterrupted. Pure, infectious celebration.
Back to stableness, this time the final one…
Fading out fast…
