Отличный альбом превосходной арт-проговой группы из Франции. Поют на своем родном, но это ничуть не "ломает", а придает определенный шарм. После пары прослушиваний, уже трудно представить все это великолепие на английском.

This French band was rooted in ’99 when Pascal Bertrand (drums and percussion), Pierre Louveton (guitar and vocals) and Guillaume Fontaine (keyboards) decided to make progressive rock music. In 2000 bass player Hervé Esquis joined NEMO but he was soon replaced by Benoit Gaignon. Early 2002 the band started to perform, their first concert was attended by at about 100 spectators. In July 2002 NEMO released their first album entitled “Les Nouveax Mondes”, a few months later NEMO hosted again a new bass player named JB Itier. In this line-up NEMO released their second album entitled “Présages”, they promoted this CD on the Crescendo Festival in the same year, along with ANGLAGARD, CAST and FOCUS. What a thrill it must have been to watch these progrock bands!
The second album “Présages is a stunning CD, in my opinion as innovative as RUSH and their guitarists has the same varied and inventive play as Alex Lifeson! The five dynamic and alternating compostions contain lots of great breaks and many changes of rhythm and atmosphere. Most of the music is based upon an adventurous, jazzy sounding rhythm-section, a harder-edged guitar and varied keyboards. The interplay between guitar and keyboards is amazing: bombastic with howling guitar and orchestral keyboards, swinging with acoustic guitar and jazzy piano (Chick Corea meets John McLaughlin) or symphonic with heavy guitar-riffs and flashing, very spectacular synthesizer solos. The French vocals sound convincing, this man has a wide range but his role is a bit limited, many parts of this CD are instrumental with lots of biting electric guitar solos and sparkling piano play. Recommended to jazzrock oriented progrock fans!

Nemo - L'homme Ideal (Si Parte II)

Пятый полноформатник "L'homme Ideal" является логическим продолжением альбома "Si Partie I" 2006-ого года. В музыкальном плане, я не нахожу с кем "Немовцев" мог бы сравнить. Музыка разнообразна, красива, мощна и "наворочена". Присутствуют элементы, как классического арт-рока, так и нео, не обошлось здесь и без джазовых "фишечек". В общем целый аудио фейерверк. Работа всех музыкантов — превосходна. Но я бы не рекомендовал начинать знакомство с группой именно с этого альбома;)
