4 stars Having previously reviewed the second album from the side project of Nemo singer/guitarist JP Louveton, here we go back to 2010 and the debut where JP provided guitar, bass and vocals and was joined by Julian Clemens (vocals), Guillaum Fontaine (keys) and Ludo Moro-Sibilot (drums), all of which also played on the follow-up, 2013's 'Who's Gonna Save The World?' As with their later album, here is a progressive band that are at times very metallic, more so than the prog metal tag would normally suggest. But, there are also times when they have a very Porcupine Tree feel to the music, and this combined with strong musicianship and some great songs makes this an album that I fell in love with this the very first time I played it and the more I listened the more I got from it.

JP is always going to be associated with the mighty Nemo, and rightfully so, but this band feels much more than just a side-project, and when he riffs out on "Carpathian Wolves" I can feel the fun he is having by being able to play plenty of power chords and just blasting it out. This song in particular has a real Seventies groove, and I just want to keep turning it up. In fact, it's hard to type when I'm bouncing around as much as I do when listening to this, like the rest of the album it makes me smile, and isn't that what music is about? Enjoyment?

Having been playing this so much recently I am going to have to rediscover the latest album, then drop JP a line and ask when the next one is coming out! Superb.
