2 stars I listened at least 5 times to this album but all I can say is that this is one of the strangest neo prog albums I ever heard, if it's neo at all what you hear here. To me this is a combination of neo prog and the Avant prog of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. And let's be honest this is a very unlogical combination, something like Indo/Raga with Canterbury, it's that strange indeed.

Anyway, is that all there is to say about Calibrated Collision Course ? Actually yes because the strange and chaotic vocals and also music are coming back in each song and are the key feature of this release. It will have something to do with the idea behind the lyrics that mainly handle the chaotic state of our planet nowadays, at least according to Galadriel. I have to say I'm getting curious for the other releases by this band: do they sound the same or did Galadriel leave the neo path just recently ? They appeared on the scene about twenty years ago and their previous release was twelve years ago so I haven't got a clue but I will check some day.

This is for sure no standard neo prog so beware if you're interested. If you like something completely different go for this one but if you like it standard leave it. Hard to rate this album, I give two stars because I will not play this for my pleasure in the future and then I usually give two. Still it's not a complete disaster in my opinion. Check the streamsong here on PA I would suggest. It will give a pretty good idea.
