Sapiens Chapitre 1/3: Exordium
An absolutely brilliant concept album from guitarist Jean-Pierre Louveton (Nemo). I absolutely love everything about this album other than I wish the lyrics were sung in English.
This record would be getting 5 Yaks and be one of the Top 5 albums of 2020 here at ProgCharts if it were in English. Jean-Pierre has said he prefers to stick with his mother tongue of French when creating music, and I completely respect that. It's just a shame, particularly when the concept's story is so compelling, that so few will even give this album a look unless they are fluent in French.
Regardless, this is a fantastic album, and not to be missed, in any language! We look forward to Parts 2 and 3! 4.5 Yaks.
