Kayak have been busy since their return. Next year they will release yet another concept album:
 
Cleopatra - the crown of Isis
 
Here you can watch a live version of the title song:
 
 
Meanwhile - there´s a CD-single out containing the above song + a remake of an old, never before released tune called Symmetry:

I will get this.
 
Also their 1975 album Royal Bed Bouncer has been remastered and will be available shortly. Although its made up of shorter tracks I still rate it as their best.

Surprising and disappointing that such a long established band as this should need to raise money to get the latest album made. I've bought the reissues of the first 3 albums so I feel I've done my bit.

RBB got me hooked on Kayak.  Glad to see them getting back to prog.

Still going strong BTW, Kayak, it amazes me.

They didn`t quite reach the goal...

Anyway - I look forward to this record since I really liked both Merlin and Nostradamus and I guess Cleopatra will be in the same vein...

No Reviews yet? Has it been released worldwide or just in Netherlands so far?

I had it delivered to me last Friday. Quite expensive so I think it probably an import. You can order it from their website and will be shipped anywhere ( I didn't buy it direct it from them but from a company called CD services) .I've been away all weekend and so far only listened to disc one. I hope to post a review soon.

Have to admit that it lacks any really outstanding songs even if the production and playing is of the highest professional standard. Probably a 3 star album but will need a lot more listens and maybe it will be a 'grower'.
