4 stars Sounds like a bunch of us found this English "Kraut" band back in our college days of yore. What a spectacular treat to be swept away again by new music from this fine band decades later!

On "Evolution", Nektar has truly rediscovered the magic of their unique progressive rock music. Some really tasty guitar licks/riffs on many songs - kind of belies the age of Mr. Albrighton (and his woes with liver disease at the time). His voice sounds great too.

The album starts with "Camouflage to White", which is a good song, but probably my least favorite on the album. The rest of the album varies between acoustic and standard rock (hard, but not heavy) and progressive, with typically thoughtful lyrics and inspiring, original melodies. No weak songs, and really very exciting to listen to.

Highly recommended for prog rock fans, and certainly for fans of Nektar - they were a special "discovery" for us 40 or so years ago, and they can still unearth new gems for us to delight in today!

Great prog compositions, exceptionally well-played, with crystal clear production. Sweet as....what's the word I'm looking for?...
