NEKTAR ‘Man In The Moon’ (Voiceprint 2002)

This is the first time on CD for this 1980 album by the UK prog rock band. The band’s line-up at the time of this album was - Roye Albrighton (guitar/vocals), Allan Freeman (keyboards), David Prater (drums) and Carmina Rojas (bass/vocals). ‘Too Young To Die’ is a pacy opener, with the band highlighting their vocal prowess on the harmonies. The vocal harmonies continue through ‘Angel’, this track really brings to mind the Journey sound of that time or Sad Cafe. ‘Torraine’ is where the real prog rock kicks in with guitar and keyboard interplay forming much of the track’s basis. ‘Can’t Stop You Now’ reminds me of 70’s Kansas, with a Hammond organ rumbling on in the background. An album highlight.

A band that know how to build up a song and they have some great vocal harmonies on certain songs. Very much keyboard led, this album encompasses AOR/soft rock to progressive moments. It’s an enjoyable album but it does wane towards the end of the CD. The band are now back together and touring worldwide, with an appearance in London in November as guests to Uriah Heep.
