A two-CD compilation that offers a representative overview of Opera Multi Steel"s musical career, from the debut EP "Rie"n up to 2003"s "Une Idylle En Péril". These masters on the clavier from Bourges/France have been around since the first half of the 80"s and are known for their mix of synthpop, modern classical and new wave. The songs are arranged in a chronological order, which makes it easier to hear the musical evolution of Opera Multi Steel. The early work of Opera Multi Steel is characterized by a minimal, relatively clinical approach that relies heavily on synths. Unlike most synthpop bands of that era the sound has a majestic touch, with a leaning towards religious themes and timbres. These references to religion became a constant element in the style of Opera Multi Steel. "Cathédrale", the title track of their debut LP is a fine example of those formative years. The peaceful closing track "Par ici où l"homme trépasse" contains an excerpt from the mass Mille Regretz by the renaissance composer Josquin Des Prez to add up to the already classical nature of the song. Opera Multi Steel has maintained a constant quality over the years, also because they stayed true to their sound. A sound that is still unique and has proven to be multifaceted and timeless.Released late February 2009 on Wave Records.Track List:CD1:01 Jardin Botanique02 Massabielle03 Cathédrale04 Forme et Reforme05 Un Froid Seul06 Prométhée07 Les Grands Orchestres08 Oraisons Minimes09 Le Phare10 Si c"est ainsi11 Jézabel12 Grégoire13 Les Martyrs14 Spacio Astro15 Tes Lèvres, un abat-sonCD2:01 Mieux les Hommes vivent02 Les Arbres attendent03 Chambre Froide04 Regrets qui s"écaillent05 Des Saints et des Miracles06 Ecran Couleur07 Lunettes Solaires08 Parfums Esthers09 Toujours ces Chants10 Les Délices de la Moisson11 Heure Matinale12 Christ13 Plusieurs " Amen "14 Angélise15 Par ici où l"Homme trépasse
