The Runaway
3 stars I definitely cannot call this one of Nektar's best singles, as it features a pretty bad selection of songs, not to mention these both are put together. These tracks are from the Larry Fast time Nektar went through, with their album "Recycled", but it does not mean everything is bad.

Flight to Reality is nice if you look at it in a "nice" sort of way, but if you don't pay much attention to the composition and istrumentation you may find that there is not a lot this song has to offer for you.

It's All Over is a fantastic song, on the other hand, but it's final part is a bit unnecessary. This song marks the end of Roye Albrighton's time with Nektar until his return on the album, "Man on the Moon" in 1980. The song is pretty catchy, and actually beautiful, featuring a full-blown orchestra, which is sadly almost buried in the background.

This is a nice single, and sort of a preparation for what you will hear on the "Recycled" album, so 3/5.

The Runaway | 3/5 |
