4 stars In my opinion the fourth album from ARGOS "A Seasonal Affair" is their best work. In fact none of their previous albums "had fallen" my taste (my maximum quotation would have been 3 stars ) , I know this is a controversy, once that all of them are musically very seemed. Maybe is due which in this one the "construction" of all tracks sounds more pleasant to me . In the previous albums - in spite the same influences GENESIS , GENTLE GIANT a bit of VDGG - the audition make me little bored. The album have some very good moments as for instance track 2 "Divergence" with a "meeting" of GG with hard rock beat. Track 5 "Lifeboats" and his "bucolic" opening theme and some GENESIS "pinch" (mainly in vocals). Track 4 "Siler and Gold" another GG strongly influence and some FRIPP's guitar style ( one of these starting 0:30 sec and again at 1 min 56 sec ) . The best track in my opinion is track 6 "Not in Ths Picture" with a graceful introduction with acoustic guitar and banjo ( or something like that) some mellotron moments a bluegrass theme and great arrangements for all instruments, in sume a perfect track !!! My rate is 4 stars !!!
