4 stars One of the most pleasent discoveries I've made in last years in music is for sure german band Argos. Formed around 2005 as a trio and evolved on their second album from 2010 as quartet, Argos mange to capture my intrest big time. Circles issued by Musea as I said in 2010 is a winner album from all sides. Very polished and diverse prog with various influences like from Hatfield and the North canterbury aproach with elements from Van Der Graaf Generator specialy on vocal department and here and there maybe in some parts King Crimson atmosphere - Circles definetly is a very strong album in today prog. Quite lenghty al;bum with some long tunes but aswell some shorter ones, but on each piece the musicians really shine. I like alot the voice of Robert Gozon, he fits here perfectly, very much similar in tone with Hammill, the voice is deep with plenty of jaw dropping moments, powerfull and catchy. The instrumental parts are aswell top notch, very eclectic in aproach with nice guitar and keyboards. The album has a very '70 atmosphere overall, but this is not a problem Argos manage to create something truly great and with inventive and quite original passages. From opening track Sammel Surium , the album sts the mood for all pieces to come, and I mean greatness and excellent arrangements. Two instrumental pieces are present , very good and well developed. All in all a very strong album, fans of the band mentioned above can check this band because worth it. They prepare for a new album to be released somewhere around august 2012, can't wait. So, 4 stars easy, very enjoyble from start to finish + very good cover art and all the art work presented, Very nice.
