3 stars Argentinian band HABITAT has been around for some 30 years at this point, albeit with spells of inactivity on several occasions over the years. So far they have 5 full-length studio albums to their name, the most recent of these is "Utensilios y Artilugios" from 2014. "Historias Olvidadas Remix" was released in 2012 through Lizard Records, and is a reworked version of their debut album from 1997.

Remixed versions of older albums aren't always a good thing, as presumably quite a few fans of an artist like Ozzy Osbourne can vouch for, but from what I can hear on this album I would guess that a remix was warranted for this particular production. In terms of sound quality this 2012 edition of "Historias Olvidadas" is still one lacking in quality, but I suspect that the source material has been stretched to the limit now and that there's nothing more to gain from it. Fans of Habitat are the most obvious audience for this album, and those with a general interest in bands influenced by Camel might also want to give this one a spin. Especially if you also enjoy artists who add a slight folky touch to their musical escapades.
