4 stars Nexus is without hesitation one of the most popular and respected prog rock bands from South America in last almost 2 decades. They really become to conquer the world with their second offer Metanoia from 2001, that album show big potential and excellnt songwritting. The third album comes after almost 5 years silence face previous one (ok, they had some contribution in compilation The Odyssey The Greatest Tale in 2005, relase a live album in 2002) is named Perpetuum karma issued in spring of 2006. Well, the music remaining on same coordinates as on Metanoia, with bombastic passages, great duels between musicins, excellent songwritting, the only thing different is the voice, no more Maria Gonzalez here, she had a perfect voice for such music, now we have Lito Marcello, who has a pleasent voice but not really at same level with the music or with previous voice, but he done an admiirable job in the end. As I said, Nexus music is symphonic prog, quite complex, long pieces, lush arrangements where the keyboards have an important role Lalo Hubers excursions on keyboards is in places impressive (many times remind me of Keith Emerson), Hacketian guitar parts captivating passages, change of moods and overall a well performed release. Maybe not as solid as Metanoia, I do still prefere Metanoia more, Perpetuum karma is a very solid and well crafted pieces of prog rock. The highlights are , the instrumental Travesía, is a spedndid 9 min tune full of captivating and spontenous changes of climate, excellent musicinship , a real treat for symphonic prog listners, another top notch track is the opening Mirar hacia el centro , the longest tune from the album and maybe the most complex one, this is Nexus at their best for sure. All in all Nexus is one hell of a great band they have all to be one of the next legends in their field, with Metanoia and Perpetuum karma they proved and show that they need attention big time. 4 stars for sure
