3 stars Navigator's debut ReEvolution Volume One has 4 ratings (all 5 stars!) and no reviews so far. High time to shine a light on here. Let's see if we're dealing with a masterpiece or anywhere near. I will do things in the logical order for there's also a Volume two and that one is next up.

This USA neoband was formed in the late nineties and came up with this idea to write a sort of twin album, not as a doubler but in two different releases. Part one appears to be a very acceptable experience all in all. What strikes me is there are no poor fillers and neither superb highlights. Third song Capacities is the only stand out track with very good guitar in fourth minute followed by near excellent keyboard play for over a minute. This is the only song that deserves a score over 3,5* (3,7).

Alas the rest is much less, somewhere between 3 and 3,5 stars for all other 10. Pretty equal in quality, that's for sure. Summarized I would say the execution is good/great and the Gary Brooker-like vocals are very much ok as well. Only downside of Navigator is the songwriting. It's not poor really but it's not great either. If they would improve on this it could be a four star case in the future. Let's see with their successor, Volume two... Three stars for now (3,2).
