3 stars Jean-Pierre Louveton is the guitarist from the very promising French progrock band NEMO. This is his third solo album, I haven't heard the other two but I'm impressed by this effort. I would like to call it 'progressive guitar rock' because the focus is on JP Louveton his guitarplay (he also has invited other guitarplayers) but every song sound tasteful and elaborated, this is far more than guitar-rock

Most compositions on this solo CD are very original , every one has its own climate featuring many great musical ideas (only "Comme les autres" sounds a bit too longwinding) and exciting guitarwork, a bit similar to ARJEN LUCASSEN (AYREON) at some moments. The French vocals often sound strong and expressive with that typical French theatrical undertone. The new NEMO bass player Lionel B. Guichard plays a fine role on the alternating track "St. Petrole" (ethnic flute, acoustic rhytm guitar, heavy guitar soli and some sensational breaks). The keyboards are on the background, only "Guest star war" delivers a spectacular synthesizer solo. This track is also one of the higlights, what a sensational heavy guitarplay from JP Louveton and the three guest guitarists featuring splendid guitarplay interplay, propulsive heavy guitar riffs and great soli, from howling and biting to wah-wah drenched, this is GUITAR HEAVEN! But the titletrack has many exciting moments too, it's the most symphonic composition featuring great guitarplay, strong vocals and wonderful keyboards in the compelling final part.

JP Louveton has delivered a captivating solo CD that showcases his great talents on the guitar, from warm acoustic rhythm guitar to heavy propulsive guitar riffs and spectacular fiery and biting soli, RECOMMENDED TO EVERY HEAVY GUITAR AFICIONADO!
