4 stars Well, let me explain something first. Nektar is not the first class supergroup, but it's only a good one. That means Nektar can't achieve five stars for me.

One more thing, I don't think they were pure prog group. I've heard first four albums and Recycled. I don't like the first one being too psychadelic for me (but I heard it just once, so I will not make a review about it). Second and this one I like most. I am a huge fan of old blues rock and hard rock so I like Sounds like this a lot.

It is not prog. First three songs are my favourite. Don't search for szmphonic elements or something like that. It is more straight hard rock with strong blues influences. And that's the best for Nektar as interpreters. Their so-called prog masterpieces Remamber the future and Recycled are just average efforts in prog.

Nevertheless, it's a good rock band with slight space/psychedelic touch (first two albums). Because this is their best album (they are not trying to pretend they are a progressive group) I give it four stars. However for prog fans it is just two stars album and it's better for them to check A tab in the ocean.

Hejkal | 4/5 |
