4 stars Okay so before I begin let me just say that in order to really dig this album you are going to have to stop looking for a return to "Tab In The Ocean" or "Remember The Future" otherwise you will miss it. "Evolution" is really IMHO a grand little album full of some great songs, progressive tendencies and excellent musicianship and vocalizations. This version of NEKTAR brings together Roye Albrighton (lead vocals, guitars), Taff Freeman (keys, piano, mellotron) and Ron Howden (drums and percussion) with a new member Randy Dembo (bass, pedals and backing vocals). This is the first time in over twenty years that Roye, Ron and Taff have recorded new material together and the end product is solid. This is really a complete album with symphonic lustre, GILMOUR'esque guitar solos, excellent song writing and a feel not unlike the more recent work of CAMEL. Again with the caveat that this is not 70's NEKTAR I would recommend this album to all lovers of music.
