4 stars THE BLACK NOODLE PROJECT is the name of a present French Progressive rock band, located in the Paris suburbs. It was first initiated in the year 2001 by guitarist and singer Jérémie GRIMA, who hired a real group shortly thereafter. And three years later, the result of their chemistry is now available to the audience, through the office of the Musea label. Deeply influenced by the works of PINK FLOYD, the music of the first album "And Life Goes On..." (2004) appears to be both atmospheric and dynamic, reminding a seducing modern form of Progressive rock. Filled with piano notes and luminous guitar flights, the melodies are to be sipped with obvious pleasure. So, why wait any longer ?... After the critical acclaim received by "And Life Goes On...", the second album "Play Again" (2006) goes one step beyond. Both more original and personal, this masterpiece is full of intense atmospheres and surprising melodies ! The Floydian influences are still present, but more discrete, through a sense of slowness, a sort of "quiet despair" and melancholy. With worked-out arrangements and sound effects, the band keeps the balance between heavy riffs, delicate guitar arpeggios or piano parts, and airy keyboards. Let's mention a good and expressive singer (English singing), and you'll get the kind of album that is too rarely heard. Sometimes near PORCUPINE TREE's kind of inspiration, THE BLACK NOODLE PROJECT has its own identity. Great stuff ! The new OSKAR edition in digi-pack have 2 originals live bonus track.
