Consumer Guide Reviews:

Nervus Rex [Dreamland, 1980]
Lauren Agnelli has gotten noticed ever since she was Trixie A. Balm, but Shaun Brighton is the secret: no matter how much you object to his fruity singing, don't miss his songs. Imagine the Left Banke with Mike Chapman, a sense of humor, and the wherewithal to hold up their own legend. Imagine "Don't Look" following up "Walk Away Renee." B+
