3 stars Formed in 2001 by guitarist and singer Jérémie Grima, The Black Noodle Project are already back with their second album, following on from 2004's 'And Life Goes On'. I enjoyed that album, and was in contact with Jérémie at the time, and am pleased to note that the second album continues in the vein of the first but is also moving forward into new directions. That the band is very influenced by Pink Floyd is never in doubt, yet there is much more coming into the music as the band continue to develop. There are some female vocals taking the lead at times, some violin here and there, and the band have also moved into Muse territory and Porcupine Tree with some hard hitting guitar. This is a band that are still moving onwards but this album is a step change on from the last one, and I enjoyed that! Here there is much more power and depth, so that the listener gets more out of it each time that is played ? and it certainly does repay repeated listenings.

By going onto their website it is possible to play some of the songs, and is definitely worth trying out as the band move away from the pure Floydian emphasis (although that is here as well) into something that has more bite and edge. or
