5 stars They 've done it !!!

After twenty years of music, Minimum Vital produced an huge record full of mysterry and imagination.

As a self produced band, Minimum Vital suffers in their first CDs of poor sound and production. I had the chance to listen them on stage, and since very early times, the band was very impressive. Years after years, CDs after Cds they searched and finally found their own music : a kind of mix between symphonic prog (Yes, Genesis, Camel,..) Folk-prog (Mike Oldfield especially, ...) and some world music;

Payssan brothers delivered in "Capitaines" captivating melodies.Each song has is own feeling, but the entire CD is very coherent and the global atmosphere is really cool

This music is rich and addictive. I've the feeling than this last effort could be loved by a large audience in the prog community.

Give them a chance. Listen to "Capitaines". I'm sure you'll make a great discovery.

NOT | 5/5 |
