This glam rock opus from the brothers Langdon — an homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey — would be charmingly relevant…if this were 1972. Judged by current standards, some of the charm lingers, but the bombastic Bowie-meets-Roxy Music vibe of The Hogyssey sounds curiously dated in this heyday of rap and metal preening. There’s loads of humor and musical talent here, but the question remains: Are these guys anticipating a retro revival, or just arriving decades late to the androgyny party?
In 1972: B+
In 2001: C+
