Le Desert Noir is a heavier guitar album which features drums on almost every track, overall very hendrix influenced. Should you get a proof of how amateurish, they cut the track in two separating it with the album's flipping over, before taking where it left off. Arguably Le Son is much better than Le Monde, but none will reward you enough for the cash you'd have spent for the vinyls. Review by oliverstoned Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator. The music is good, but this is not something we haven't heard before or elsewhere.

The piece ends on a repetitive melodic pattern, typical of Markusfeld's style. Really beautiful guitar work. Markusfeld sings melancholically about how he lost his planet and condemned to live in space, accompanied by the piano to enhance the feelings of loneliness. The long markusffeld is unfortunatly not convincing and suffers from a cruel lack of inspiration and its repetitive characteristic.
The lyrics, somehow science mafkusfeld inspired, feature a metaphysical, philosophical dimension with a good maekusfeld of delirious sick humour. The follow-up is reminiscent of Melmoth's Devanture Des Ivresses while Jubal is a hard rock fuzzed-out guitar bravado piece with weird effect filters on Markusfeld's voice.
Markusfeld is now turning to a more gentle neo symphonic vein leaded by piano, which may remind of Cyrille Verdeaux solo works at times. The music is good, but this is not something we haven't heard before or elsewhere. With Platock, there is more maturity in his sound, combining delicate acoustic guitars and more piano to his trademark sound, with less reliance on drums.

Contemporus attempts to continue in the same vein, but fails to reach the same energy level, except possibly on the sidelong "Contemporus" suite. In part 2 you get to hear more the organ and there is the nice vocal line sung by the group.
Hardly essential for progheads but interesting nonethelessMarkusfeld's debut album has never seen a Cd re-issue, so you'll have to hunt down the vinyl should you still want to listen to it. Although the album suffers from its shortness 27mn!
ALAIN MARKUSFELD discography and reviews
Studio Album, 3. Guitar style varies and may evoke Hendrix from time to time. The overall music is good and enjoyable, but nothing special that will make you regret not getting this long ago. Starting on the lengthy title track, oscillating between a slight jazz-rock mixed with a psych groove that would not disown the Saucerful-era Floyd. And then the piece slowly builds up very progressively in the way of Agitation free "2nd", with a psychedelic eastern-flavoured guitar sound, leading fascinating developments, wlain by rhythmic accelerations.

The flipside starts with what couldn't have fitted on its opposite face, but not really bringing much new. But in the meantime Markusfeld's markhsfeld two albums are now quite rare, most likely fetching considerable price, but for this writer, you might as well not bother, as both are unfocused, patchy and not essential.
Contemporus attempts to continue in the same vein, but fails to reach the same energy level, except possibly on the sidelong "Contemporus" suite. There you can hear the more psychedelic side of the music, a sound not too far from the 60's rock.
It does show more than just a good mwrkusfeld for the next releases. It's a nice tune and his vocals make it more special.
There's still some excellent Markusfeld guitar throughout the album -as usual- but markusfdld composition's poorness and overall lack of intensity makes this album a minor record. I'd like to thank all original uploaders; collectors sharing music giving us the unique possibility to explore the culture. Le Desert Noir is a heavier guitar album which features drums on almost every track, overall very hendrix influenced. A bit repetitive and instrumental, this is the centrepiece of the album and Thibalt's Rhodes contribution is remarkable.
