5 stars Argus fits perfectly into the Prog Related class. The songs are not without a certain verse-chorus structure, but they are so much well extended and strewed of little details that it approach of prog in a certain way. The songs are excellent, the guitar duo is in perfect harmony with himself, the bass is not just there to fill an empty space, it's an essential part of the songs. The drums are well tought and played, keeping classic structures at an higher level of inspiration and creativity, with surprising fills that doesn't always end or begin at the moment you expected. The voices are soft, perfect for this kind of music. To me, starting with Wishbone Ash' Argus would be an excellent idea if you're new to Prog or to extended rock songs in general, it has a easy sound to appreciate, with immense power, the kind of songs that gives you an unexplainable feeling while you listen to them.

Time Was, Sometime World and The King Will Come should be looked at before you buy the album, those are the perfect samples to take a look at, to peel and analyse deeply.

A 5 star album, considering the fact that it's in Prog Related category.

Ogilla | 5/5 |
