21th Art Rock Show: Le Livre Blanc

Deze week stellen we Jean Pierre Louveton, gitarist, zanger en componist bij de Franse progband Nemo aan u voor. Jean Pierre Louveton of JPL heeft al verschillende verrassend mooie soloplaten op z’n actief. Le Livre Blanc is zijn laatste.

Prog Archives review: “There is a strength in this album, nearly a harshness, as the vocals are full of passion. Combining this with the multi-layered and incredibly well constructed and arranged music creates an atmosphere where the listener is soon inside a world very much of JPL’s making. There is some wonderfully fluid and complex piano underlying some of these songs, and this provides a solid basis for JPL to multi-track guitars so that he then has somewhere to lay some inspirational solos against. “L’ermite” is a case in point, where music goes from layered and bombastic to simple and almost acoustic, before coming back with a real bang.

I feel at home inside the album, able to curl up and let the warmth, power and passion of this album wrap itself around me, as if the rest of the world no longer exists. I keep coming back to it and finding more to enjoy each time, as if I am slowly unwrapping the layers. There is a groove at times, and at others it is more thoughtful, demanding you to pay attention. Complex but never over the top, this is always accessible and completely enjoyable. Yet another great work from Jean Pierre Louveton, and I look forward to his next with great interest.”

Naast JPL met het album Le Livre Blanc hebben we deze week: Bad Dreams (Déjà vu), Radiohead (Amnesiac), Infinity (Infinity), Little Atlas (Wanderlust), Nil (Nil Novo Sub Sole) and Asgard (In The Realm Of Asgard).
