4 stars Whereas most retro-prog bands tend to focus on one or two bands or a particular subgenre of the 1970s to emulate, Argos try to emulate everyone at once - and, surprisingly, turn out to be really quite good at it. Listening to Circles, you'll stumble across a bit of acoustic strumming (a la some of Pink Floyd's Animal-eras stuff) at one point, then a symphonic section, then something reminiscent of Lizard-era King Crimson, then a pastoral passage, then a Hatfield and the North-esque jam, all jammed together cheek-by-jowl in an attempt to blend more or less every major subgenre of prog into one big melange. They don't manage to get everything in (I don't remember hearing any zeuhl) but they give it a good go, and their efforts to do so sound great.
