4.0 out of 5 stars Unique and excellent 69/70 rock / pop, 24 Sep 2000
This review is from: Argent / Ring Of Hands (Audio CD)
The first Argent album is a classic. It's a logical progession from The Zombies with strong songs and vocals but with much more complex music. Some of the highlights are: the atmospheric 'Schoolgirl', vicious 'Liar' and offbeat 'Freefall'. No other band has sounded like that album since and Argent's music quickly evolved to become more commercial. Ring of Hands is their last satisfying step on that road, it's still good stuff but doesn't quite have the originality of the first album. Despite that, some tracks, like 'Lothlorien', are outstanding.

And so the debut lp of the band "Argent"self titled seemed to pick up where the Zombies, the 1st band formed by Rod Argent left off. The album opens with "Like Honey". the next song contains the famous hit for 3-Dog Night "Liar", written by Argent frontman Russ Ballard.This version has a simple greatness to it that is without doubt one great song. In this album thre are many songs that seem like simple arrangements, but cascade into rich arrangements.
With "Ring of Hands", the momentum continued. The songwriting team of Rod Argent and Chris White, who produced all of Argents albums was ace. And so Russ Ballard's writing style developed while in Argent. . Indeed many of the songs that were Argents hits written by Russ. Many of the songs here were hit material anyway. WHile the fame that this band greatly deserved came with the 3rd album "All Together Now", this set of the first 2 albums by a now legendary band provides the nucleus of what was to come.
And indeed they do not dissapoint. For not only Argent fans, but anyone who is a lover of truly great music from this era, this is a must have.
