Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is mentioned in the same breath as Wobbler a lot, and indeed it does have members of that group among the backing musicians - Lars Fredrik Frøislie, who released his own solo project just recently, plays a particularly subtle role on keyboards. However, Caligonaut is very much the solo project of Ole Michael Bjørndal of Airbag, with his guitar and vocals at front and centre. Unlike recent Wobbler releases, it does not go quite so far into the realms of retro-prog; instead it's replete with more modern sounds, putting me in mind of some of the gentler passages in Steven Wilson's solo albums at points, likely because it's the product of similar sensibilities.
Warthur | 4/5 |
