5 stars Nektar isn't too well known, but they deserve to be. "remember the future" is an absolute classic prog album from 1974. Roye Albrighton on vocals and guitars, is a genius. His vocal melodies and guitar work are well crafted and fun to listen to. This album is full of melody and catchy hooks, but it also has several breakdowns, and some flat out hard rock sections.

From the very beginning you know its gonna be epic, the sound fades into some funky strumming on guitar, and then the bass comes in and you know that this is gonna be a good one. Roye Albrighton plays some very happy sounding rhythym sections with beautiful lead guitar textures. almost poppy sounding, but as the music continues, you begin to see that this is far more than just pop rock.

The album is broken down into two tracks: remember the future pt1 and remember the futuer pt 2 on the other side. There are several subtitles underneath the main songs that indicate the various changes in the direction of the song. what you get is several mini songs, that forge into one complete product. and they achieve it beautifully. each section is tastefully done, with no wasted notes.

This album has great vocals, memorable melodies, interesting lead guitar and organ, and some great progressive breakdowns. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. so many memorable moments for 2 long songs, almost make it seem like pop prog. kinda hard to pigeonhole, but its NEKTAR! remember the future.............
