Nuance biography
A unknown French band, NUANCE from Perpignan came in life in 1981, led by the talented guitarist Rafael MARCO.They made their debut in 1981 with the work "Il Est Une Légende", a great Neo / Symphonic type of album with plenty of ANGE hints throughout. Towards mid-80's the band adapted a more modern sound, leaving behind the analog equipment of their debut for good, releasing an interesting cassette in 1986 ("Ami"), followed by their second full-length album "Territoires" in 1989, a typical example of Neo Progressive Rock.The last album "Reflets" came out in 1996, reputedly in an even more mainstream prog style, and this was actually the band's farewell release.Their leader Rafael Marco formed later a couple of personal projects like Rafael Marco et Amigos and Les Sergents Péperes and still produces music during the millennium.

Essential find for fans of LAURA, NAOS, QUADRA and MAGNESIS.

Territoires
Nuance Neo-Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

3 stars This is neo-prog? It almost sounds like crossover to me, save for the epic sized pieces.

Mostly the album is made up of fairly simplistically structured songa and passages, but with lots of prog flourishes. There is nothing on the album that might blow you away with it's technicality, but there is also something strangely endearing about the music as well. Perhaps it is Jean-Louis Blanc's retro, almost cheesy synth patches, or Rafael Marco's quirky guitar solos.

The band seems to have understood that their real prize was bassist Cathy Guerre. The bass is pushed very far out in front in the mix of each track. While, again, not technically exciting, she plays her way around all of the rhythms on a flanged fretless bass, and makes sure the songs are listenable.

A pleasant album.

Il est une legende
Nuance Neo-Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars As with the NWOBPR movement in England trying to recapture the 70's prog style in modern forms, a small amount of French bands like Synopsis, Opale, Grime and others tried the same thing in France influenced by the likes of Atoll, Ange and Mona Lisa.One of these groups were also Nuance from Perpignan, a group from early-80's led by guitarist singer Rafaël Marco.Nuance released their debut ''Il est une légende'' in 1982 as a private press.

The first album of the band contains a huge influence from ANGE's Theatrical Symphonic Rock, played in an old-fashioned way with some nice movements and a great balance between vocal and instrumental moments.The style is built around symphonic arrangements with not so difficult structures, characterized by the massive ANGE-like organ waves, the interesting guitar work and the sensitive French vocals.And as with ANGE, Nuance's music offers plenty of soft acoustic textures with both a lyrical and folky twist.On the other hand the somewhat 80's sounding electric parts (close to the likes of late-70's/early-80's CAMEL/PINK FLOYD) and the light use of synthesizers show clearly the mood of the band to create something closer to a new prog era than being stuck as an act to the past.The compositions are well-executed yet a bit safe, lacking any drastic interplays, with slow-driving instrumental passages and a relaxing but still very emotional atmosphere overall to go along with some very good vocal arrangements and a fair dose of changing climates.

This album is definitely a must-have for all fans of the so called ''70's French Prog'' sound but it is sure to please also Symphonic Rock and Neo Prog fans.Recommended.

Thanks to psarros for the artist addition.
