Powderfinger - Odyssey Number Five

tricky up to his best again - cheers mate

In my humble opinion their best album, no week songs here, played with aggression and passion.

Powderfinger's fourth studio album, Odyssey Number Five, was released in September 2000, shortly after they were asked to write songs for the soundtracks of two films; Two Hands and Mission: Impossible II. The song "These Days" was written for Two Hands and "My Kind of Scene" was written for Mission: Impossible II.[29] Odyssey Number Five was Powderfinger's most successful to date; selling 560,000 copies. "My Kind of Scene" was also released as a single from the album, as were four other songs; "My Happiness", "Like a Dog", "The Metre", and "Waiting for the Sun". Odyssey Number Five won ARIA Awards in 2001 for "Album of the Year", "Highest Selling Album", "Best Rock Album", "Best Cover Art", and "Best Group". "My Happiness" was also awarded "Single of the Year", and other songs were nominated for ARIA Awards in different categories.

Many songs from this era of Powderfinger were ranked on Triple J's Hottest 100 list. "These Days", "Already Gone", "Good-Day Ray" and "Passenger" were ranked in 1999, and "My Happiness" and "My Kind of Scene" in 2000.
