Well their song, "The Pilgrim"(from the second album) sounds proggier than anything on Argus yeah, imo. Also I think their 'proggiest' sounding album would be, "Nouveau Calls." But what do I know either lol.

There was a bit of a return to form with 'No Smoke without fire' lp and 'Just testing' but it went seriously downhill from there. A contemporary band I have become acquainted with is 'Tin Spirits' (with Dave Gregory of XTC and Big big train) who have 2 guitars, bass and drums and they reminded me of WA at their best in many ways though they play covers of king crimson and genesis as well as their own material. Another band who kinda reminded me of WA were a band called 'Orange Can' who were label mates of the Beta band in the 90's and had a 2 guitar line up but used it to create something a bit different. I re-listened to the first WA and Pilgrimage and actually I think they are both more experimental than Argus which sort of solidified that sound in a more polished way. I don't care what they're labelled, they were a really, really great band when firing on all cylinders but wincingly bad when not..

I assume 'the blabber' is because someone started a thread with the proposition 'Is the Wishbone Ash Album Argus Prog?' I guess everyone has been expressing their ideas about that. I guess it shows that regardless of how bands are categorised by prog archives, people still want to discuss or express that they may have different views.Wink

All I know is that Wishbone Ash is a darn good band and criminally underrated.
