4 stars Some say they are pioneers of the twin lead guitar hard rock/heavy metal. The first track I've heard of this was The King Will Come, and this track is a great classic rock one, and the mind blowing intro can drive anyone to madness in a great way, but the fantastic expectations made this album not so special when I finally got it to listen to it as a whole album. Argus is like if you were looking for a horse ride in a distant road. You want a long road to feel the fresh air and look at the beautiful environment. The road is long but sometimes repetitive. The ride was funny, the horse is very unusual too, but you had better expectations, so you kill the horse with a shot in mouth. This is a great album, and the first track is amazing. The blues guitar solos are fine. The songs are lenghty but not really progressive at all, and the blues solos are too long. Some boring, non-relevant, and unmemorable tracks and parts, but not so bad, I could listen to the whole thing without skipping any track, so it's OK. Well, it's a good addition to any collection, good songs performed by a good band, and a cool album cover. But I really prefer Neil Young folk & country rock songwriting with his lenghty guitar improvisations without any "prog" tag to fool my personal expectations.
