4 stars My first Nektar album--introduced to my by my local pop radio station! (They were into playing shorter prog songs to promote upcoming local concert appearances: Yes, Pavlov's Dog, Nektar, Ambrosia and others were heard during 75-76.) the 'songs' "Remember the Future" and "Bluebird" were extracted for radio play in order to promote an upcoming tour at a brand new outdoor concert venue. While I now own several versions of this album, the original American vinyl release--with it's four separated 'songs' per side--is still a favorite. I do recognize that the album was really meant to be one continuous play and that each and every song bleeds into the next.

Anyway, to this day I have a distinct attachment to Nektar--and especially to the guitar work of much under-appreciated Roye Albrighton. Though Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, The Eloy, and Ozrics Tentacles reign supreme atop the list of Psychedelic/Space Rockers, I hold firm that, for me, aside from Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno, there is no group out there that took me farther into an altered state of outer space than Nektar.
