2 stars I'm sorry. Too retro. While I certainly respect the efforts and musicianship of Kaipa and The Flower Kings and Transatlantic, I don't want to go back, to recreate the music of the 70's. The music of the 70's is done, classic, almost sacred. I want NEW music, new styles, structures, and innovations. Everything I hear from Kaipa is a repeat of The Flower Kings which is mostly a repeat of Yes with a Canterbury twist. Plus, Aleena Gibson's voice is not aging well: It's too gravelly, even grating to me, and has trouble singing in the within the key structure the musicians are using. Probably a fun concert band on the summer Progfest or rennaissance festival tours, but not a band with anything new to draw me in. Sorry.
