— First review of this album —
2 stars US outfit NOVUS REX is described as a father and son duo, albeit on this initial disc it would appear that the latter was only briefly involved. Another participant was vocalist Anthony Davis, who sadly passed away before the CD was finished. What remains, at least as far as credited work on this production goes, is that the Novus Rex debut effort "Plowshares into Swords" to most intents and purposes is a solo vehicle for J. R. Fernandez, put together with some additional help.

"Plowshares into Swords" comes across as a slightly flawed item, but one that does keep a high standard on some levels. If you have a soft spot for 70's sounding symphonic art rock, a particular fancy for instrumental soloing in general and ones conveyed by organ and keyboards in particular, this initial effort by Novus Rex is one that warrants an inspection.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
