Prog Reviewer
3 stars Kayak's 'Phantom of the Night' is in my opinion rightly seen the highlight of Kayak progressive pop phase ('77-'80). Not only does the first side impress with a string of enthusiastic and uplifting melodic pop-rock songs, the second side has strong spree of (mildly progressive) symphonic rock songs as well. Perhaps a bit like Alan Parsons Project at its best. The melodic ballad 'Ruthless Queen' became an international hit, and it indeed is a very impressive song with a beautiful vocal performance of Edward Reekers. For fans of the early progressive period of Kayak the song 'No-Man's Land' offers a nice bit of nostalgia with Max Werner on vocals, who by now had become the drummer of the band. Songs like 'Daphne', 'Journey Through Time' and the title track are also among the best progressive rock / pop Kayak had to offer in this period.
