5 stars NEXUS' debut album. Band members strongly influenced by GENESIS and ELP. In "Detrás del Umbral", lead singer Mariela GONZÁLEZ brings out the María CALLAS inside of her with an exceptional opera technique perfected by her; the Spanish lyrics give the album that Latin touch and comes along perfectly with the rhythmic Lalo HUBER's keyboard playing all along the 13 episodes of this musthave album. There's a slight sensation of conceptuality between "El Despertar" and "El Último Ritual", which happens to connect strangely right with the rest of the tracks. The instrumental passages that complete the album, such as "Más Allá del Límite", "Utopía" and my favorite out of the set, "La Espiral", meddle perfectly in between to give away that sensation of progressiveness NEXUS proposes in here. "Signos en el Cielo" and "Eterno y Fugaz" hold the definition of "epical" quite right, making the experience worthwhile and unforgettable. The Argentinean band contemplates the reliable basis to relive that 70's sound, with a touch of the overflowing 90's essence. Innovative, contemporary and fresh, NEXUS is definitely a keeper.
The Prognaut | 5/5 |
