Editorial Reviews

Kaipa is back with their 10th studio album 'in the wake of evolution'. The new album is an emotional and powerful blast straight into the future powered by fragile fragments from memory lane combining progressive rock epics with folk influences and melodic songwriting. Kaipa has a career spanning over 3 decades was originally formed in 1973 and their debut album was released in 1975.the first version of kaipa (1973-1982) recorded five albums and became the leading scandinavian progressive rock band. 20 years later the band reformed and invited original kaipa guitar player roine stolt (the flower kings, transatlantic). For fans of dream theater, transatlantic, rush

5.0 out of 5 stars Kaipa's best album yet! March 29, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
This time out, Kaipa's continuing forays into Swedish folk, prog and jazz-rock terrains are aided by the enlistment of excellent guest-musicians Fredrik Lindqvist (recorders) and Elin Rubinsztein (violin). And no disrespect intended to TFK fans... but guitarist Per Nilsson's contributions are so natural and powerful that I can't help but scratch my head and wonder "who was that other guy that used to play guitar for this band?". ;-)

But seriously, Hans Lundin's compositions are well conceived, the production excellent, and most importantly the musical result vital and full of life.

If you have any affinity for classic symphonic style progressive rock music whatsoever, check this album out. I think you will be glad you did!

More information about KAIPA:

Kaipa's saga is another of those classic-era prog underdog "comeback stories" that fans could only dream about in the late 1980's and early 1990's. Truth be told, the band "hung in there" through prog's leaner years far longer than most of their contemporaries, replacing lost members as needed to release two albums in the 80's and one in the 90's before taking an infamous open-ended break for "time off" that everyone eventually came to believe had surely become their final chapter.

What they didn't know, however, was how incredibly deep and resilient prog's underground roots had grown. Indeed, reports of prog's "death" had been highly exaggerated! The internet's ability to re-connect fans across the globe ushered in an era of Prog Rock Festival expansion, increasingly effective online niche marketing, and instant content delivery downloads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prog At Its Purest April 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Long-time prog fans who remember the first flowering of the genre may think they never left the seventies on first hearing In the Wake of Evolution. For of all the prog bands that are riding the renaissance of progressive rock, Kaipa represents the form in its purest expression. And that may be no surprise, though millions have never had the pleasure of hearing Kaipa, the band's roots tap into the early seventies and drink deeply from the heady mixture of idealism and joyfulness that typified the age.
Kaipa has had many ups and downs through the years, but the last several albums have given the band a firm footing among prog rock's elite. In The Wake of Evolution is a stunning piece of work, with the Scandinavian humanism of keyboardist/lyricist Hans Lundin brought to glorious life by his uplifting compositions and their virtuoso interpretations by the band. But to me what really puts the icing on the cake so to speak is the vocal performance of Aleena Gibson. It is the childlike joy and innocence of her vocals that give Kaipa a memorable and distinctive sound.
I like In the Wake of Evolution from beginning to end with the glorious epic title cut setting a high standard for the rest of the album. Beside that, I really enjoy Electric Power Water Notes, Folkia's First Decision, and The Seven Oceans of Our Mind which gives this a strong finish. For those who haven't heard Kaipa, the best way to describe their music is that it sounds like Yes on steroids.
The edition I obtained here is from Germany's Inside/Out Records, a label that is the spearhead of prog's resurrection. It comes housed in a standard jewel box and is accompanied by a meaty insert featuring pictures, album and band information, and most importantly the lyrics. Over the years, Sweden has given the world many fine progressive rock bands. Kaipa is one of her finest. Get this soon while it is still available.

A little poppy at times but it is Swedish ..home of ABBA. Arrangement and guitar playing especially stands out to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Music April 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you are open minded to progressive folk fusion music, this is an excellent choice. In The Wake of Evolution is on a par with the last four Kaipa albums including the latest, Angling Feelings. Kaipa has elements of traditional prog (Gentle Giant or Jethro Tull) with pop melodies (Styx or Queen)and a Swedish folk flair.

The musicians are all extremely talented and are all-stars in their own right. Hans Lundin, who writes and leads this group, is a virtuoso on keyboards, particularly the mellotron. I can't say enough about Jonas Reingold of Flower King fame on bass or Morgen Agren on drums.Per Nilsson is a shredder and a star on guitar. Vocals are ably and enthusiastically delivered by Patrik Lundstrom and Aleena Gibson.

Check out the powerful keyboard/guitar interplay on Arcs of Sound or the title cut! Well worth the $7.99 for MP3 versus $28 for the CD.

Well what's all the fuss about it?
Certainly- I recognize it- They are talented musicians, as for their experience (especially regarding the long career which has characterized the role of Roine Stolte within his recent groups- such as Transatlantic, Flower Kings and of course the present Kaipa), but I'm a little bit disturbed when the typical sound of the seventies begins to "flow" in their compositions!!... Ok- by considering this album "In The Wake..." another product of classic prog- the choice made by Kaipa is always coherent, even though at the end their artistic value is poor, being too much "derivative" in my opinion, regarding the old style of the band (perhaps it could have been ok thirty years ago!!...).

Instead when They insert simple and convincing melodies into the mini-suites, inside a "wall" of mellotron sound, by driving the listener to the folk music genre, the output is a little bit different. Otherwise, despite of finding some embarassing lyrics inside, you can appreciate a good example of interplay between the guitar and the keyboards, above all in the track "Arcs Of Sound" or within the title-track , but I don't know whether it's enough to recommend the present work or less.

You can check it out at least, but for instance a clever band from the USA- like Echolyn- had traced a path to be emulated in the 1st half of the nineties in their gem "Suffocating the Bloom"- and it could have been a new way in order to perform an excellent modern symphonic prog; instead Kaipa has never followed such example... in fact the present album- that creates some echoes of an old and dated music genre- also in the title (do you remember that famous album by King Crimson in the early seventies?...
