From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Excellent musicians, an eclectic synthesis of the roots of progressive rock, with heavy, funky, folk, classical elements, with analogies with KING CRIMSON, GENESIS, YES, JETHRO TULL and others 70's classics or more recently PORCUPINE TREE or DREAM THEATER. This group is amazing and they made a wonderfull album with catchy melodies as well as complex structures. Everything that a prog fan would like to hear is there. Barbares is a quite diverse album with funk, hard rock, jazzy, folk rock,... in wchich each musicians plays its role. The keyboard player clearly shows his classical background but masters very different styles; the guitarist and vocalist never stops to drive the positive and mysterious energy of Nemo's music: loops of complex riffs and solo follow each other harmoniously. The bass and drum join each other in complex rythms, breaks, mood changes and song structures. This kind of album gives me the absolute conviction that what the reference groups of progressive rock from the 70's are much more than an episode. They initiated a style that still inspires among the best musicians. It makes rock equal to more respected styles of music such as jazz or classical music, by the level of creativity, intelligence, sensitivity and enjoyment Nemo is giving us. Many thanks guys, this is a real masterpiece.
