5 stars Wow. I had never heard of this band before until Progarchives and my curiosity led me to discover them. If you check out my reviews, I try to review bands that don't have any or very few. Arco Iris must be recognised as one of the top 10 progressive bands of all time. That's right, you've read correctly. Agitor Lucens V is a double album that is as important as Genesis's Lamb or Yes's Close to the Edge. The music is less symphonic and much more on the folk side. Don't try to find influences from the major bands at the time because you won't. These guys and girl play & sing with a lot of feeling. What is more, harmonies are very strong but not like Crosby, Stills & Nash. They sometimes (but very occasionally) make me think of Pink Floyd' Meddle. Arco Iris is definitely a band whose major albums, including this one, must be found alongside the other "big ones" in any serious prog music collection. I'm giving them 5 stars. I've fallen in love with the music !
