Solar Plexus is Nucleus' third album and while it has the same line-up as the first two, it feels much less like a band effort. Ian Carr has taken full control over the songwriting and while he did this most convincingly, I do miss the musical interplay and creative fire that was so stunning on the first two albums. There's more jazz and less rock on this album. This is not only apparent in the jazzier nature of melodies and composition but also in the arrangements. There's less space for Spedding's guitars and Marshall's drums are buried a bit deeper in the sound
Ian Carr (21 April 1933 – 25 February 2009) was a Scottish jazz musician, composer, writer, and educator. Carr performed and recorded with the Rendell-Carr quintet and jazz-rock band Nucleus, and was an associate professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. He also wrote biographies of musicians Keith Jarrett and Miles Davis. Carr was born in Dumfries, Scotland, the elder brother of Mike Carr.

Solar Plexus (1971) and Belladonna (1972) were made during the music changing times of the late sixties and early seventies when the sound of jazz and rock merged with innovative artists or bands like Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, King Crimson and Nucleus. These two earlier albums sound very much like the early electric jazz outfits like Miles Davis, or Tony Williams Lifetime. Obviously I am biased here - as one of my lecturers at Cardiff University was Keith Winter - very smart guy and keeper of many VCS3, Synthi100 etc in the electronic music section of the Physics Department.
