5 stars "Nouveaux Mondes" is French band CAFEINE's new concept album. The band though doesn't exist since the early nineties. Their debut CD "La Citadelle" was released in 1994, and it's also their only album up-to-date. They have been working on this follow-up for a couple of years. The concept is about great conquerors like Alexander, Don Juan and Icarus. Just like the band AYREON there're many guest musicians and vocalists, for example Christian D閏amps (ANGE), Sonia N閐閘ec & Jean-Baptiste Ferracci (MINIMUM VITAL), Cyril Grimaud (HAUTEVILLE), Pierre-Yves Theurillat (GALAAD) and Julie Vander (MAGMA). The music is symphonic progressive rock with vocals in French. There are reminiscences to AYREON, The FLOWER KNGS, GENESIS and YES, with big soundscapes, beautiful arrangements, good melodies, skilful musicians, lengthy instrumental passages and a professional production. This is one of the best albums from 2000 and I strongly recommend it to everyone.
