In this French art rock project, all good things come in five. Because "Ghosts & Memories", his fifth album, is by far his best. Maybe it took the soundtrack makers John Carpenter, Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti, who inspired you this time. Or the shrinking to a trio, where mastermind Jérémie Grima took over the bass and keyboard passages, which creates exciting moments. The Black Noodle Project conjures up seven ghosts of the past on "Ghosts & Memories" in seven gems. The result is mostly melancholic, partly, like in the opener "The Wanderer Of Lost Moments", also gloomy and threatening. But little sparks of hope glow again and again. Doom, progressive rock and modern soundtrack enter into a lustful ménage à trois on this album, in which there are many surprises despite the prevailing melancholic mood. For example, airy topics that are difficult to grasp are transformed into excessive psychedelic - or into flawless prog, which could originate from the seventies. The two years of work on this work have paid off.
