Calibrated Collision Course is the fourth album of Spanish band Galadriel. Frankly speaking, the content of this album is not my musical cup of tea. Especially during the epic song As Big As Bang, I almost fell asleep, as this song doesn’t come to life. It’s just too long, too boring and certainly not inventive as these guys milk their ideas so very dry. The rest of the songs are slightly better, but most of the time it’s weird, dull and too experimental, at least for me… In fact, this band reminded me of The Tangent, which isn’t really one of my favourite bands as well, as you will have guessed….
