4 stars JPL, the leader of groups and NEMO WOLFSPRING released its 2017 "White Paper". So why not take the opportunity for you to say a word! For me it is the most successful of his creations with 9 titles and over an hour of music on the theme of distrust of religions. Musically, we dive here in typically PROG atmospheres where the sound takes us in dreamlike places of great beauty, with the help of drummer NEMO and WOLFSPRING. We do not forget the singing LAZULI at a time in this record. The atmosphere is more melodic rock with a presence of the acoustic guitar, but soon they are really prepared developments with rhythm breaks that give a level of prog-metal scalable. The flat is in my opinion too winded voice lacking musical creativity, paradoxically making even more pride to the instrumental flights. In any case very listenable who forgot that a great French band played in the veins of JPL!

"An open book" opens with a musical diversity with acoustic intro and combat guitar riffs, drums and piano. "The hermit" is more developed with progression based it on a heady riff of pure beauty, go to the deviation prog 4'35''et you will understand, my favorite! "Joker" English title lapping on resurgences DEEP PURPLE obvious! "Trompe death" with plaintive voices and a guitar that made his taff but nothing more. "The North Star" which for me is the future of JPL namely a LAZULI more about guitars that léode and text to music, and this simple but devastating riff on taking a digression prog supported! "Convoléances" the ballad of fresh album, spleen and crystalline guitar with present and well detached battery; "The plague and cholera" on a southern air ZZ TOP takes on a more incisive text digression level, personally I have always found that there were other areas in this level if I have music service regained some Rudess keyboards, voice level, it also goes really well, the final has something ANGEL made me melt even a little! "Joan" is the second major piece with everything you need to go very far, and more is that this musical universe changes with every listen: there is the Occitan MINIMUM VITAL in moments , what a must! "The White Paper" or the instrumental final to go smoothly. otherwise level music performance I've regained some Rudess keyboards, voice level, it also goes really well, the final has something ANGEL made me melt even a little!

This is a CD that should have more visibility and recognition, a disc as one can not imagine that it still can exist in France with sound, depth, the more nervous NEMO which should please even the fans of prog outside of France! Also a big pleasure to have chronicled as this was the only one I had not made the effort to listen to my great wrong!
