  • PeterF on February 14th, 2019 - 1:35pm

     

    I got the club free trail! I actually think most of the club episodes are better than most of the actual odyssey albums. (what I mean by the odyssey albums is the albums they made since they started the club) what do you guys think that have or had the club?


  • PeterF on February 14th, 2019 - 1:39pm

     

    I havn’t listened to the new album yet but I will soon. O by the way guys this is my new username. my old one was IVAN. you guys probably already know that cause I said it a Zillion times.


  • PeterF on February 14th, 2019 - 1:42pm

     

    I havn’t been commenting lately cause I’ve been listening to a lot odyssey. after my trial ends I will give my rating of the new album. PeterF=IVAN.
