3 stars The fourth album from this Argentine band.

I have heard a lot of positive things about this band and we also have an interesting interview with them here in ProgArchives. But this is my first exposure to their band.

Habitat does prog somewhere between neo-prog, symphonic prog, rock, eclectic and folk rock. They have some toes in each of these genres without really making any serious footprints in either of them. Crossover, in other words. That makes this an interesting album too.

The Spanish vocals is an added bonus and the vocals is excellent. The vocalist sounds like the folk rock vocalist he (Aldo Pinelli) probably is. The instrumentation is very clever with a lot of interesting folksy instruments. That makes a very rich sound.

The quality of the music is somewhere inbetween good and great. My main gripe with the album and it's main shortcoming is the lack of any really great songs. Then again, the sound is great and I am warming more and more to this album. An album fans of both Genesis, Marillion, Yes, Jethro Tull and King Crimson would really enjoy if given the chance. Putting up stars is a quandry for me and I feel cornered. But a great album requires at least one great song and this album has none. But this is still a very good album and I reserve my rights to visit it again to update the score.

3.5 stars
