3 stars I hate to use the term second tier, but Nektar seem a perfect example of a good group, that never quite blows down the barrier to greatness. The 2 main songs on this album seem dated , even for 1974. Pt I starts off reminding me of the riff in Yours is no Disgrace, then goes on to some good guitar jam, but it doesn't really pull me in more than that. It's as if they had let loose Mick Box after dropping LSD & a case of beer. Interesting, but it never quite catches on, even though it makes for a moderately enjoyable musical trip. Pt II's beginning also gives off a Yes vibe, but this time more mellow. As it gains speed, it becomes more of an organ driven space jam, with wah wah guitar closing out most of the last 4-5 minutes. But again, everything is OK, but nothing more. I will include my usual caveat, that you listen to samples first, because some will find this right up their alley. I find it a bit derivative & at best competent.
