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 !!!
