Within gauge-gravity duality, we compute the scalar and tensor mass spectrum in the boundary theory defined by the five-dimensional sigma-model coupled to gravity obtained by constraining to eight scalars the truncation on T that corresponds to the Papadopoulos-Tseytlin PT ansatz. We study fluctuations around the 1-parameter family of backgrounds that lift to the baryonic branch of the Klebanov-Strassler KS system, and interpolates between the KS background and the Maldacena-Nunez one CVMN. We adopt a gauge invariant formalism in the treatment of the fluctuations that we interpret as states of the dual theory. The tensor spectrum interpolates between the discrete spectrum of the KS background and the continuum spectrum of the CVMN background, in particular showing the emergence of a finite energy range containing a dense set of states, as expected from dimensional deconstruction. The scalar spectrum shows analogous features, and in addition it contains one state that becomes parametrically light far from the origin along the baryonic branch.
