5 stars When I first listened to Nova Solis, I was but a baby prog head and I thought that it sucked and that I would never listen to it again.

Well I was extremely wrong, after giving it a relisten(is that even a word?) I decided to instantly purchase a copy and decided on a Japanese release which is so cool looking but I digress. I know very little about the band Morgan but I do know that Nova Solis kicks butt.

First off, this LP manages to master the ability to confuse you beyond belief but also have a complete grasp on reality. If that makes any sense. The keyboards will go all over the place and send everything into chaotic flurries yet there is still control.

Secondly this album as mentioned by other reviewers encapsulates all that prog should be, unique, complex, innovative, and strange. From the odd sitar sounding thing, to the alien space battle or whatever is going on in the title track, Morgan has it all.

Third, if you love bass like me, well listen to this album because it's got plenty to go around.

My favorite tracks are Alone and War Games. Alone is very somber and pretty and War Games just brings joy through the form of head banging to that bass.

Essentially if you like symphonic prog, do yourself a favor and listen to this album.
