4 stars The most eclectic prog-band I have ever heard along with Swedish band Ritual.

Most instrumental prog-bands are perfect and, what is more important, individual. Djam Karet is no exception – their sound is very peculiar, divergent and like nothing on earth.

A Night For Baku is an excellent prog-album full of energy, freshness and mysteries. Djam Karet’s music staggers, frightens, soothes, puzzles, gladdens the listener – I guarantee that you’ll be overwhelmed by different emotions during listening to the album.

What about influences? For instance, I noticed some eastern music influence in Djam Karet’s music (The Falafel King); there is plenty of fusion (Hungry Ghost); some experimental stuff is also here (Ukab Maerd); a bit of electronic music can be noticed (Heads Of Ni-Oh); but as a whole it is high-quality progressive rock with touches of other styles.

The album consists of 8 songs with long improvisations, wonderful guitar (and keyboard) solos, a nice keyboard work as a whole, good riffs and complex structures. Though there are no vocals here, this instrumental album is not tiresome and annoying, because Djam Karet knows how to keep the listener focused on their music. A Night For Baku is a great addition to any prog-collection. Recommended to the fans of top-notch instrumental progressive rock.
