4 stars Are you fed up with just another GENESIS, DREAM THEATER or MARILLION clone? Do you think prog rock is dead or fails to generate any excitement? Well, the new and third album "Prélude A La Ruine" from French prog rock band NEMO proves that there are still prog rock bands that succeed to sound innovative. Enjoy NEMO's unique progressive blend of symphonic, metal, jazz and classic, loaded with good ideas, strong breaks, dynamic climates, strong interplay, a propulsive rhythm-section, sparkling piano and many spectacular solo's on guitar (often harder-edged) and keyboards (flashing synthesizer and bombastic organ). The more mellow moments contain piano, violin, twanging electric guitar and warm acoustic guitar but in general you will carried away by swirling, often breathtaking prog rock. In my opinion with their new CD NEMO has turned into a prog rock band equally level to SPOCK'S BEARD or The FLOWER KINGS! If you are up to music like MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT or RUSH, the new album from NEMO will be certainly please you.
