    well, OK. so it's nucleus. with ian carr. would anyone really get offended if i said just write this group off? do all their albums basically sound the same to you? yes, it's true, they do. but if you want to buy just one album by nucleus i would recommend 'labyrinth.' it's their peak album in my humble opinion. oh, but what about 'belladonna' with allan holdsworth? nah. that album isn't very good. nucleus does have an interesting take on jazz-rock, but there's really no need to go through their discography. you can just get one album that will encapsulate their entire sound in the best possible light and that album is 'labyrinth.' it's got norma winstone, who beats joy yates all over the place. leave your desire for holdsworth with gong, soft machine, jean-luc ponty and the first new tony williams lifetime album. THIS is the best nucleus album, and it's one i come back to regularly. trust me.
