4 stars NEMO - Les Nouveaux Mondes - review #001 by rakam

This is the first album from french prog-rock sensation NEMO, and already a classic album. All the musicians are first rate players and the songs are stunningly good. The group benefit from a long experience since they have been touring and recording for years under diverse monikers and genres (not only progressive rock but also pop-music, hard rock, heavy metal .) and this shows here : good compositions, good musicianship, good lyrics (although they are in French and most of you won't understand them).

Technically, this is a self-produced album (their future albums also) but everything is professionally done, the production is top-notch, the artwork is beautiful. To have an idea of the music produced here, one can think of Yes, Dream Theater, Spock's Beard but don't let these names fool you, NEMO has his own identity and a strong one indeed, and I'm not afraid to state that they belong to the best of the genre. If you want to hear samples of their music, please go to their website. My favourite songs : "Abysses", "Dr Fergusson et les Caprices du Vent vol.1 : au dessus des toits", "Dr Fergusson et les Caprices du Vent vol.2 : au dessus des pyramides" I think this album deserve 4 stars, and 4 stars is a very good rating ("excellent addition to any prog music collection") and if you are not afraid to listen to french lyrics I suggest you give them a try, there is only a little chance you will be disappointed.


Ps : excuse my poor english
