5 stars This is symphonic prog at its best!

Kaipa has managed to produce 70 minutes of solid classic 70s symphonic rock sound, somewhat akin to Yes but with more electric guitar and less prominent bass. Even the vocals manage to sound like Jon Anderson (not to mention borrowing a few lyrics from Close to the Edge). In this respect they have nothing new to offer, but how can they? Symphonic prog is symphonic prog.

What makes this album a masterpiece are the musical ideas. For a band that is not new to the prog rock scene, these ideas are fresh -- not to mention perfectly developed and masterfully performed. In the Wake of Evolution is certainly better than any Kaipa album of the 70s and among the best symphonic albums of this decade.
