5 stars Maybe "earthquake" could be a good word to describe this amazing debut album by Jean Louis.

Even when you can find recognizable influences of 80's and 90's avant garde and RIO bands (basicly Present, Doctor Nerve and The Muffins) the truth is Jean Louis sounds very refreshing and renewed, bringing oxygen to a genre that sometimes seems to be suspended.

With a hard and almost pschizophrenic work on trumpet and heavy bass sections, tracks will be the delight of every RIO and avant garde fan. Constant changes, different styles and moods, some jazzy sequences (for moments Aymeric Avices' work is like an homage to Miles Davis), dark and powerful explosions of music are part of the tracks in an album which has, at least, five highlights: "Tourlac", "Maximator", "Airbus", "Tranche" and "Kasams".

Totally recommended for any prog fan but specially those who likes Doctor Nerve and similar stuff. 4.5*...
