4 stars 4: The fifth album by nektar, their second most successful commercially and including the only nektyar song to chart on Billboards single charts, Astral Man. A really good album with a circus thematic but with a lot of philosophical metaphors and interesting things to say, nothing deep even though. Musically, is a collection of really good song with hard rock oriented rhythms and the classic progressive style of the band, and although are very well made and sounds incredible they are not as developed as in their previous masterpieces. I think it is a underrated album, in fact I considered it too for the entire nektar collection. What you will find also is that is very focused in the guitars, missing more involvement of the other instruments, maybe if they developed more their best songs and included more melodies and keyboard passages it would be turned into a masterpiece. Finally, a very good collection of hard rock song with a lot of progressive touches that make it very enjoyable album, a excellent addition to any prog rock collection.
