For some reason I cannot post a review, but instead I drop it here.
Here's some serious stuff:
 
I mostly agree with Zitro about this album, except about "good Hammond organ playing", because for me it's bad, naive and really annoying totally stealing the show here. Basically, the whole record consists of 6 long organ solos and I really don't get it. I wonder what is the wonderful thing here everybody hypes?
I liked their previous records, which are quite good, but this surely sucks! That and the absent of Mariela Gonzales leads to only one star, maximum.
 
But Hey, What's Going on? Look at those reviews!
There's Alots of reviewers, that did come, reviewed ONLY Nexus album(s) and never visited here ever since!
Is this the marketing plan of Nexus?

If you don't like organ soloing you probably don't like progressive rock... "Perpetuum Karma" is my favorite album of Nexus and Nexus is one of my favorite bands since I've heard them some 3 weeks ago. Lalo Huber is a great keyboardist with magnificent style of playin' which reminds me good old 70' prog. And if you say:"the whole record consists of 6 long organ solos" you are probably deaf becuase 2 songs from this album don't have Hammond at all ("Del Abismo Al Sol", "En Ese Viento") !!!
P.S. If you think that all of these good reviews are fake I have to remind you that THIS IS YOUR FIRST AND ONLY POST ON THIS FORUM so it's very possible that you are a part of neo-proggers' and prog-metals' marketing plan against retro-progressive rock .

It's not the question if the album is great or not - somebody is mass-rating it, and that's WRONG! Go there and read those reviews, and check the user datas.

Administrator should remove those multiple ratings immediately! Maybe the massposting can be verified from senders IP.

Let me put your fears to rest. There is no conspiracy. Many of us believe that this is a fantastic album. If you don't like it, that's too bad, and your right.

By the way, did you notice how many of the actual reviews have high ratings?

Right, so let's look closer...

14 people have reviewed the album and 11 of them gave 5 stars.
8 of them haven't ever reviewed anything else but Nexus.
Lets put it another words:

73% of 5 stars Nexus reviewers dont review or rate any other albums!

And there's no conspiracy, you say Clap

Take any other album and you'll notice that there's no such only one album reviewers.

Yet another:

First, let me say I have not heard the album in question.  But what's going to happen with some albums is that there will be fanboys who will just register to review one album.  It happens, and if they want to do that, I don't have a problem as long as their review is acceptable. 

There's no conspiracy here....

First and last, let me say, there's no cure for stupidity.

Reports on attempts of corrupting rates and similar actions shall be done preferably via PM to the Admins.
 
Check the situation: the first post includes an old member (Mr. Hiccup) that certainly has nothing to do with this issue. PM communications avoid that a name may be unfairly cited.
 
This topic is closed. All neccessary actions will be taken.
 
Thanks!
