Almond Marzipan

Open Up Your Heart: A catchy rhythmic ballad, noteworthy for some very attractive harmonies


Argent (LP): Rod Argent, former leader of the ahead-of-their-time Zombies, has formed an extremely accomplished new band. Their music has a mind of its own but has taken a good part of the Zombies penchant for expressive harmonies against structured backings. Most of the songs would be strong enough to stand up outside of an album. All told an exceptional first album.

Cupid's inspiration

Are You Growing Tired Of My Love: A glossy and highly polished production, a driving beat and a vibrant performance add up to what I can only describe as a competent and commercial pop disc. Terry Rice-Milton's stirring powerhouse voice is encased in a lush backing, with tambourine accentuating the rhythm. It could make its mark if it gets sufficient exposure.
