I really have to admit that I (also) like Argent in their "birth" ...as the first album is good clean fun pop music !! Also I like their last two: "Counterpoints" and " Circus"...for the sheer brilliance and music capability!! But...now for "Nexus " ringing in at 42.20 minutes it is a stunner, first track "The coming of Kohoutek"...with its under theme (Classical) is quite a masterpiece with keys to the fore (Rod is a master of his trade) actually its rather close to some work of ELP or Triumvirat.....gliding into a slow piece, there is that classical theme again (why cant I remember ...from where???)...the power of those first 2 songs instrumental are really awesome!! Russ Ballard (vocals and guitar) is no "guitar hero"...but he manages to come through track four brings us...ahem.. back to the Argent we know, a beautiful song with strong vocal arrangements....and plenty of keys (moog and mellotron) and the ever reliable Bob Henrit & Jim Rodford on the bass/drum basement!! I dare you to mention ANY band that slightly bares resemblance to Argent. These guys are unique and thank you for that!! "Nexus" is a little piece in its own right!! Find it...buy it...enjoy !!!

That's what they say about us...

All bands/artists and all moozik aficionados, if you have not joined Planet Of Prog on their fb page yet you might want to join them here too. They are unbiased, very honest sharing the music from the greats to the indie starting artists and what I love the most about them, there is no negativity (you'll not find any pompous selfrightous know it all full of know better and how sermons on their reviews) no matter who you are, all their reviews the bands are treated with utmost dignity even if the review is not most favorable, that review will be honest, not pompous and most in awe respectful of the artist's efforts. I love them, love this site. Join if you want to,I like them a lot!
