Review by TenYearsAfter


Many years ago I did an interview with French progrock label Musea, very nice and prog dedicated people. The Musea crew told me that they are almost daily flooded by promo material from a wide range of prog bands, from all over the world. And they do their ultimate best to take all seriously, and that's how Musea stumbled upon four piece Venezuelan prog band Retrovertigo, formed in 2002. An interesting and friendly meeting between Latin-America and Europe, emphasizing the increasing amount of quality prog from that area in the last two decades (from Nexus, Amagrama, Bauer and Astralis to Angulart, Loch Ness, William Gray, Supay, Redd and Spin XXI, to name a few).

In general Retrovertigo their music is pretty dark and guitar-oriented featuring lots of slow rhythms, atmospheric climates and fragile guitarwork. The influences range from Landberk, King Crimson (Discipline-era) to Coldplay, Nirvana and U2. My highlights.

La Esperanzadora : soaring keyboards and beautiful electric guitarsound.

Mi Dulce Y Enferma Vivana Vivana : great interplay between fiery electric guitar and propulsive drums.

And the tiltetrack : warm vocals and intense electric guitarplay.

To me this album sounds as a wonderful attempt to make varied prog, with a strong emotional undertone.

My rating: 3,5 star.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
