4 stars NEMO is a group formed in the early 2000s, dissolved in 2015, leaving his songwriter JPL recognition or hope for a better readability. This is her second baby (2003) emerges in 2018, remixed, re-refined and with an original of more than 13 minutes. The atmosphere of the album is still in its pre-disaster texts, harbinger of a world that is inevitably harmful, tracing these setbacks and featuring different adventures. At orchestration, sound longer dusted by putting different musical breaks much better value. In voice level, JPL made an effort, perhaps the age? But his voice ... which matured on some tracks still is the weak point of the album and takes some of the aura given off by the CD.

"The last wave" of piano school to start this piece with this symphony still mixing, acoustic, choirs, and neo metal explosion with beautiful solos, an angry guitar, hypnotic atmospheres with convoluted drawer looking dreamy emotions a life-size fresco, one must 15 years later. "Generator" grooviest (more energetic and nervous), more hard with a basic riff and effective, however with more vintage organ and guitar that spurt. "On the grave of the Phoenix" with its bells input xylophone, a fat riff that recalls that JPL has concocted a parallel group in his time with WOLFSPRING, title drawer with slow prog climb, then solo ZZ TOP and escape with purely enjoyable synth and complex drawer climates. 3 follows chained songs reworked into a single title "death scorpion" for an acoustic tour with clear intro causing a swirling after almost folk, acoustic guitar break may recall that of PAYSSAN brothers MINIMUM VITAL is downright always so beautiful especially as I had listened there less than a year without knowing that I was going to chronicle; 3rd party more instrumental, symphonic, jazz-prog with drift, SF with its sound effects, as nervous afterwards and that is worth seeing for its complexity. An approach to new heavy, hard, scabby, passing well to finish this triptych! "New Crusades" 5-part epic offers a room where you can get lost so many moods change with the minutes; Attention, guitar solos, synth will succeed, or mate during the 18 '; it is on the edge of jazz. As for "the worst is future" prog technique, nervous, more nervous yet it offers room also varied with a rhythmic and instrumental agree more spaces; only downside, too predictable texts (texts also beautiful!) that break a little the musical atmosphere.

Varied progressive rock, this is what always NEMO, stamped French group with different layers of instruments, showing there's talent too little known composer of this unparalleled. The duration of around 77 minutes, the compounds provide an overview of what can be done in the rock with a song verse-chorus and developments, drawers, convolutions of sometimes acoustic parts, sometimes hard, sometimes symphonic with breaks various to create separate universes. So for prog fans the French, do not hesitate and engulf you, immerse squarely in the world of NEMO.
