4 stars Skeem is a neo prog band from France relaseing so far a single album in 2001 at Musea records selftitled. This album took me by surprise, because I dind't expect to be so good. Neo prog is style of Jadis, Iq but concentrated more on vocal department but also the keyboards have an important role here. The voice is very ok in english sung, it doesn't sounds with that typical french accent, Serge Barbaro manage to come with a strong album, he is the main song writting and the chief of the band. So the music is very strong, not boring at all, very much alive with balls, up tempo with less slower moments, some fantastic keyboards arrangements make from this album a total winner and among the best neo prog album available from early '00. The music is similar with for ex Clepsydra, Jadis or to some dutch bands from same genre like Ywis or US, but Skeem done it better then any Jadis album, to tell the truth and in one album only. Pieces are long, enough to show that each musician knows the instrument pretty well, the great ex of super neo prog are :Statues, Eye Of The World and Chrysalides. A very good album from neo prog with a lot to offer, maybe little unknow, it doesn't seems to be in top this band with their album, but worth be investigated fr sure. 4 stars easy, recommended , you will have a pleasent surprise.
