5 stars The good reception that some bands have had that try to pick up the legacy of the classic prog, shows us that it does not matter to do more of the same, as long as it is done with sense and quality. Caligonaut, like Wobbler, Logos, Jordsjų among others, present us with a program with elements that we all know and enjoy.

The Music of Caligonaut sounds like a mix between the symphonic prog and other calmer proposals, such as the Gazpacho band and psychedelic rock. Simple melodies that gain strength when harmonized by the keyboards, dark and gloomy moments, voices that play with the counterpoint - you only have to listen to the first four minutes of the first track, to realize that voices are a great resource on this album. - and the constant variations of the pieces, make the album make us feel at home. The atmosphere of the album is, in general terms, melancholic and introspective; something that Steven Wilson fans may like.

Caligonaut is a project that fans of the "retro prog" may like. A style that does not innovate at all, but ... Does that matter? When music is able to touch your heartstrings, and make your mind fly, it does not matter if it is an avant- garde proposal or a style from 50 years ago.
