5.0 out of 5 stars BJH back on top form, 6 Nov. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Nexus (Audio CD)
As a long time BJH fan, I felt that the band had lost its direction to some extent after Woolly's departure following "XII" - ironically having lost their keyboard player, BJH then opted for a much more synthesiser-based sound in the 80's, which became somewhat bland at times, particularly on the Les Holroys tracks. [True, there were some good albums, such as "Eyes of the Universe" & "Welcome to the show"]. With "Nexus" (& the subsequent live set "Revival"), Woolly & John have shown that they really can still get the old magic to work. I understand that the re-workings of old tracks may have been a request of the record company, & I would personally have preferred to have seen all new tracks (although at least the reweorkings have been arranged differently to the originals). Of the new tracks,"Star Bright", in particular, is a real BJH classic & on a par with the band's prime in the mid 70's. This album rates along with some of the band's mid 70's work (such as "Everyone is everybody else", "Time Honoured Ghosts", "Octoberon" & "Gone to Earth") as one of their finest - I hope this line-up lasts, or at least that Woolly is allowed to rejoin the BJH 'proper' line-up. (Contrast this with the BJH feat. Holroyd/Pritchard album "Revolution Days", which I found somewhat disappointing).
