Cafeine "La Citadelle"

Nos próximos posts vão aparecer vários progressivos que chegaram até a alcatéia e como sei que nosso ombundsman é um pé no saco com relação a isto deixo bem claro o motivo.

Tô com o saco cheio de ver em blogs por aí bandas obscuras, de sons obscuros sendo intituladas progressivo só prq são obscuros.

Não é introduzindo instrumentos clássicos com outros tais como baixo, batera e guitarra que se faz um rock progressivo e nem voltando aos tempos medievais ou usando gaitas de fole e sei lá mais o quê; mas sim temperando uma mistura de qualidade, bom gosto e virtuosismo em cima de instrumentos clássicos ou não e utilizando notas e letras pra formar um conjunto harmônico ou dissonante mas que principalmente tenha qualidade.

Como no rock italiano, vários blogs tem postado bandas como progressivo só por causa dos nomes e nem se dão ao luxo de ouvir ou pelo menos pesquisar, o que identificaria o nicho em que tal banda atua ou atuava.

Como isso tb vem acontecendo com bandas francesas resolvi postar o Cafeine, que pouco vejo falar por aí e vou trazer mais um trabalho fantástico em breve (se deixarem) pra demonstrar a diferença até com a produção dos discos e a qualidade do material pra tanta coisa que consigo ver por aí levando o nome de progresssivo.

Ah e este post nasce de um email:

Olá Dead or Alive

CAFEINE were a French band,found in 1990 by Patrick Jobard (guitar), Christophe Houssin (keyboards) and Laurent Houssin (bass guitar).

The first line-up included also Bertrand Peyrat on drums and Jean Chiriaux on vocals.

The band recorded two demos with great success and was offered a contract by MSI,however it was the departure of Houssin,Peyrat and Chiriaux which slowed things down.
CAFEINE continued playing live with Jean-Christophe Lamoureux on bass and Hervé Morel on drums,while new vocalist Philippe Ladousse joined a little later.

Finally the band's debut ''La citadelle'' was released in July 1994,STYLE: A fine release of melodic Progressive Rock with a modern sound (often flirting with neo progressive),yet the influences by 70's bands are obvious.

Keyboards have a strong classical flavor and when they doesn't it's the guitarist who takes over with plenty of mind- blowing melodic solos.

Lots of instrumental parts with enough complexity and a good amount of strong, poetic and lyrical performances.

From the powerful,filled with interplays compositions to the more relaxed,laid-back vocal-led themes,it's a certain aim for the band to keep the album's good balance.INFLUENCES/SOUNDS LIKE: Any guitar/keyboard-driven symphonic band that springs to your mind.

From GENESIS and CAMEL to ANGE and ANYONE'S DAUGHTER with an obvious neo reference.

Often I am reminded of EXPLORER'S CLUB ''Age of impact''.

PLUS: Keyboard work is simply beautiful with a mass of memorable symphonic outbursts.

Guitars are also very strong,both on rhythmic and solo parts.

Vocals come also as a plus,as Ladousse is a decent singer without an over the top moment.

The album in general is very melodic and maintains a great balance throughout.Some more complex parts will satisfy the more demanding progheads.MINUS: You won't find something you haven't heard in the past.

The production is flat,burring at moments the fantastic keybord and piano work,a common thing for most of late-90's/early-90's bands.

Drums and especially percussion sound very very plastic.

WILL APPEAL TO:...fans of Symphonic/Neo Prog,who propably consider it a must-have.

CONCLUSION/RATING: A carefully-arranged album by a very talented band in the vein of Classic Progressive Rock can be nothing more than a succesful purchase.

Fine melodies,an ethereal atmosphere and the superb balace guarantee a pleasant listening...3.5 stars.Studio Album, released in 1994
