Argos - The Other Life (2021)

The sixth album from this German band.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, percussion, guitars, flute, keyboards, samples and vocals.

The three guests added backing vocals, saxophones, organs and keyboards.

Argos is regarded as one of the best German neo-prog bands. Their first five albums has been very good.

Argos has also spawned some side projects like for example Jacobs. But the band was together again for this album.

The music on this fifty minutes long album is very melodic with some very good vocals.

It takes some efforts and time to get into this album. An album where Argos is flying pretty close to Genesis throughout. 

The songs are not that immediate hits and not so catchy. They are more reflective and introvert. 

This is still a good album. But it is not their best album by far. 

Argos is still a great band and their music deserves a lot of attention. That also goes for this album.
