3 stars Nektar is one of my fav bands from old school, listning regulary to their '70's albums, for some month I've listen the most newer releases, like for ex Evolution from 2004. Well at first spin might think is almost linear rock without many hooks, but after 3-4 rounds I begun to appreciate at the full capacity this album where progressive elements are evrywhere but hidden very well in the context. Maybe is more relaxed album then their older stuff, but is very ok. Roy Albrighton is in good form at is easy to see on opening track Camouflage to White , and aswell on Child of Mine and Old Mother Earth, very good pieces that shows Nekat is still in bussines. The album is gentle, with some smooth arrangements, where the great voice of Albrighton interluded very well with the instruments. A mature work I might say, well performed, but with all that I prefer the older stuff ike Recycled their best album , to me at least. Anyway a return to for album with plenty of good moments. 3 stars, good one but not realy something realy special.
