Review by Fishy
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Another concept album from the dutch band Kayak but slightly different from Merlin, their previous album. This is more kind of a musical. This double album has a whole range of vocalists who sing like actors in a play with former singer Edward Reekers in the role of narrator. Before the lyrics were written for this album, there was a study on the life of Nostradamus to find out what part of the myth was real. That's why the lyrics hold some alternative views on his life. Although it's interesting, the lyrics sometimes lose their natural form in order to keep the story complete. Just listen to "The secret study" and you know what I mean. A lot of vocal harmonies are used to emphasis some of the main idea's and are delightful to listen to though the atmophere tends to be quite swinging every now and then. So it's obvious the vocals are the dominant element which is new for the band especially when compared to early Kayak albums. But nevertheless the vocals are great no matter who does the singing.

In many ways this project goes on where "Merlin" stopped. It's bigger, longer, more ambitious and there're more people involved but the songs are more accessible and conventional. This is progressive rock like one could call the music of Alan Parsons Project progressive on which it is reminding quite a lot. There is a fair amount of progressive rock in the traditional vein with wonderful orchestral sections, massive keyboard sounds or church organs. But "Nostradamus" includes also lots of other musical styles like classical, folk, Gregorian, pop or mediaeval music. There's even some seventies disco on "a man with remarkable talents, remarkable indeed. It's hard to believe this album has just been released, it sounds as it came out somewhere in the late seventies. Still I like it.

It's hard to make a selection of the strongest moments on this album as each track has it's own unique flavour. Let's take a look at the most progressive moments on the album starting with the instrumental tracks : "Dance of the death" has a dark sinister atmosphere and the folky keys on "Dance of mirror's" are uplifting. The Parsons/Powell influence is most noticeable on "The tournament" and "The centuries" is an enjoyable bolero.

And now for the vocal songs : "The inquisition" is one of the symphonic pop highlights and illustrates Ton Scherpenzeel's commitment to some Camel albums. "Fresh air, running water, rose pills" is a great progressive rock hymn and "A cruel death" could have ended up on "Merlin". This album has a huge amount of pathos and this may be too much at some point like on "you won't find me alive at sunrise" or the title track. This is a trademark of concept albums and especially musicals. Some melodies that return every once in a while, are another trademark. A name which comes to mind when hearing this is Andrew Loyd Webber but his music fails in keeping my attention "Nostradamus" doen not. It maybe pastoral at some points and there definitely is a lot of emotion involved but only a minor part is cheesy.

Compared with Merlin, it surely is less progressive but the level of quality is high on the whole album, I can't discover any flaws. The quality of the song writing is top notch, the melodies are awesome ! It makes you forget this album lasts over 100 minutes. But I do think that many readers of this site will find this album too poppy and the idea of a musical will probably be found repulsive. Some people will regret the instrumental side of the band is driven to the background on most of the vocal tracks. The instrumental excerpts are most exciting on the interludes between the real songs. Songs are short and most of them only make sense when playing the whole thing from start to finish When listening to the album I find it hard to press the stop button.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars To me this record was a bit of a dissapointment. I very much liked Merlin, it's one of my alltime favourites and I find it underrated by most people. Nostradamus would have been a great record if some popsongs were deleted from the tracklisting. Highlights are Friends of the Stars, Dance of Death, The Inquisistion, If History was mine alone and A royal inventation/Tell me all/The Tournament/The golden Cage (one story wihtin the story). A lot of other songs are to be seen as popmusic.

It's actually a shame nog live dvd was released! On www.kayakonline.nl you can read a very nice blog about what happened during the tour in the theaters. Very impressing how much problems they had to solve. And then - this is a hobby! All Kayak members have fulltime jobs aside there musical career. It must have been very hard to make a musical in your spare time! So very much compliments for that!

Some less good things about the album are the vocals of Bert Heerink. In the '80 he started of very good with the hairmetal/glamourrock band Vandenberg (I recommend the Alibi album, thought it ain't prog). On this record his age plays a part too. You can hear his voice declining. After this record he also left the band. Over the whole album his voice is sufficient though.

I think this would have been a great dvd and cd if they had the financial backup to make it. The cd sounds like it's recorded in a rush to me. Kayak being the number one bad luck band of music history have always had financial problems. They actually never seen a penny of their whole carrier. To bad, because the music is worth it.

So, in summary, a good opera. It must have been a great show in theaters! As an concept album to many popsongs for me but also great rock moments and prog influences on most songs. You will also find good vocals of all the girls they invited for this project. I've been sceptical of the popmoments on this album. I want to add one thing; for popmusic, it's bloody good! Three stars - but with a warm feeling in my heart still, for Kayak is one of my favourite bands!

Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Like their previous album "Merlin-Bard Of The Unseen" this comes off as a musical for the ears, sort of a Prog opera I suppose. I must admit I haven't heard KAYAK's earlier works which i've seen described as Prog-pop, but this one and the previous one I mentioned are quite proggy.

This is a double album with 36 short tracks ! I can't bear to go song by song with this one. Like the previous album i'm having great difficulty appreciating the music. It's epic at times with choirs and it often has a classical flavour.There's narration and even folky passages, but this is all over the place to be honest. It's all about the concept and the lyrics though so if concept albums are your bag i'm sure you would rate this highly.There's even guests here to be the vocals of certain characters. Just not a fan of this style. I'm having difficulty listening to this for the third time.

For fans of KAYAK and concept album junkies.
