Before consulting this TOP WAVES, let's have a look at what the official hexagonal ranking has in store for us (source Snep).
It is the last Coldplay who appears in first place with "Music of the Spheres".
"Lockdown Sessions" by Elton John is at a good eighth position for his entry.
The last Imagine Dragons "Mercury-Act1" is 27th for its sixth week in the ranking.
At the 30th place, we find "A View from the Top of the World" of Dream Theater which proves that it was not only expected by the progressive audience but a much wider audience.
Iron Maiden's "Senjutsu" is at number 64 for its sixth week in the top.
The latest Craddle of Filth "Existence is Futile" is at number 70 for its entry.
The winner of the last Eurovision Maneskin continues to make resistance at 143rd for his 21st week in the ranking.


TOP WAVES - GENERA

Unsurprisingly, the winner of this month's ranking is Dream Theater's already fifteenth album.
"A View from the Top of the World" is "a resolutely prog metal album, in all its complexity and in the literal sense of the word, because if this new album is in the continuity of "Distance Over Time", it is even more deliberately metal".. (Newf)

DREAM THEATER A View From The Top Of The World




More surprising is not the second place acquired by Altesia but the small point which separates it from the throne held by Dream Theater, that is to say the quality of their second album.
"Paragon Circus" followed in the prestigious wake of Opeth and Haken, "Embryo" continues on the same path, but is enriched with less obvious references"...  "No doubt, Altesia is a band free of any constraint". (Newf)

ALTESIA Embryo




To complete this podium, we find Enslaved of which we didn't think there was any news so quickly, hardly one year after the release of "Utgard".

"It is difficult to judge "Caravans To The Outer World" and to draw any conclusion about its contribution in the Norwegian discography or about what it could initiate in the future. Apart from a few angry minutes in the first track, this is an Enslaved that is more of a storyteller of ancestral myths, which could nevertheless be a harbinger of homeric and tenebrous outbursts". (Nuno777)

TOP WAVES - METAL

What can I say except that the metal ranking of the TOP WAVES is the perfect reflection of the general one with Dream Theater at the top of the world ahead of Altesia and leaving the crumbs to the others including the third, Enslaved...

TOP WAVES - ROCK

It's Robert Jon & The Wreck's new album that takes the top spot. With a "collection of ten tracks as varied as they are luminous", "Shine A Light On Me Brother" sees Robert Jon & The Wreck consolidate their place on the heights of southern rock with vast influences." (Loloceltic)

ROBERT JON & THE WRECK Shine A Light On Me Brother




In second place we find not one but two bands. The first one is Eclipse who "managed to become a leader of the hard melodic scene with FM tendency". (Lynott)

ECLIPSE Wired




The second band sharing the second place is Auri for whom the postponement of the tour intended to bring Nightwish's ninth album, "Human II Nature", on stage, allowed the trio to dive into the realization of their second album.

"Those We Don't Speak Off" must be savored in its entirety, offering the listener 50 minutes of pure musical beauty, like an addictive treat that delicately caresses the neurons and distills its benefits to the whole organism. (TonyB)
