5 stars I stumbled across this album on vinyl format in about 1980 or so. I find that the music moved me like nothing else. I lost the actual record in the mid 80's and all but forgot about Kayak. Recently I have been in search of the CD and it is quite an adventure to try and find it. It remains one of my favorite collection of songs of all time and I hope to be able to someday find a copy on CD. The combination of the instrumentation and vocals is very clever and the songs are incredible. Maybe some would say overly dramamtic but I can't argue with the feeling that wells up in me upon hearing these songs. Too bad it didn't hit stronger in the USA. As a big fan of groups such as Kansas, ELP, UK, Yes, etc. I find a romantic element in the Kayak music that I feel is indeed rare and unique. Maybe it takes me back to the time when I had the original album, I don't know, but it remains one of my all time favorites.
