4 stars CD1 ARGENT: REALLY 3,91 (GOOD BUY! Good addition in your discography) CD2: RING OF HANDS: REALLY 3,55 (GOOD BUY! Good addition in your discography) THIS RELEASED: REALLY 3,73 (GOOD BUY! Good addition in your discography)

ARGENT: Good disk of adolescent prog. I should say that the songs listen to themeselves a lot well and this disk arrives at the end leaving a pleasant memory. Songs like the blues jazz of "Like Honey" or the beat of "Schoolgirl" (and it almost twins "Stepping Stone") listen to themeselves a lot well, because doing not weigh and are excellent when it is guided the car in a long journey. Dramaticer, like atmosphere, "The Feeling Inside", the extraordinary "Liar" and it almost cheerful "Bring you Joy". Not a masterpiece... But little us left.

RING OF HANDS: The songs of this album remember themeselves except for of those of "Argent", also because is a more relaxed disk, perhaps too 60's. Nevertheless "Cast Your Spell Uranus" is a piece of really extraordinary hard prog. A little one under "Lothloren" and "Chained". The other give back attractive the album, but nothing more.

THIS RELEASED: Good idea that of unite the first two album of argent, between parenthesis, are two twin album. Are you listen to themeselves a lot well, even if they give me the impression of to is a not too to the step with the times (are gone out in 1967 or 1968 would want to see where the prog would have arrived...). In conclusion I advise more this released that the two separate album.
