Claude Fortin Un album que j'adore... du bon rock progressif comme j'aime, des passages très doux et d'autres heavy :-)

foxdurer Un autre excellent album de Cosmograf! Beaucoup de chose à aimer sur celui-ci: un concept intéressant et des mélodies puissantes. Parmi les meilleures parutions de 2022. Favorite track: Heroic Materials.

Nickie Harte Kelly Led by multi-instrumentalist Robin Armstrong, Cosmograf is fine neo-prog with strong classical overtones, plus a swing by the 70s. This is a concept release, based around a WWII Spitfire pilot reminiscing on his flights, his battles, his homeland, those he loved there and his regret for how things will never be the same again. Wonderfully cinematic and elegant work. Favorite track: Heroic Materials.

William ‘Billy’ May looks back on his life at the age of 99 and realises the world has completely changed since he was a young man put into an impossible scenario, defending his country from the air. He no longer recognises much of the modern world but understands that the human race must live in a different way in the future.
