Customer Reviews

The newer Kaipa tends to be very "vocalist oriented" and often very uptempo.
Mark R Shahin
This is a great progressive rock album, this is a great band to get a more in depth on the progresive rock music and the virtuosity of the band members, great vocals!
Carlos M.
For those interested in Roine Stolt's involvement, it should be noted that everything was written by Lundin.

What year is it again? Right, 2002. It's been a long time since the original progressive rock renaissance was kicked off by innovators like Yes, King Crimson, ELP, and Genesis. And yet, listening to Kaipa's Notes from the Past, you could very easily think you've stepped through a time warp. This album's sound is vintage! Still, it goes to show that a magical band can come along and work with the classical sound in wonderful ways that make everything old seem new again. You _must_ have this album if you like the classic keyboard-heavy prog sound, but if you hate walls of 'tron and Hammond organs...RUN AWAY!
Headed by keyboardist Hans Lundin, Kaipa is a Swedish band that released a few albums in the 70s. Guitarist Roine Stolt was also a member of this band, and now many know him as the head honcho behind The Flower Kings. Notes from the Past is the first album released under the Kaipa name since the early 1980s. Even though the progressive rock genre has been through a lot of changes since the 70s, this is a great record independent of musical epochs.
For those interested in Roine Stolt's involvement, it should be noted that everything was written by Lundin. Stolt's voice here is his guitar playing, which is surprisingly vibrant and exciting. His creativity is endless. On this album, he cuts loose with some of his most exciting playing ("The Name Belongs to You") and some of his best textural playing (virtually instrumental section). The vocals of Patrik Lundstrom are excellent, a bit like Stolt himself actually but with a duller accent and simply a more powerful voice.
"Morganism" is one of my favorite prog instrumentals. It apparently gets its name from Morgan Argen, the drummer, known for playing with Zappa and Mats & Morgan.

This 2002 recording by Sweden's Kaipa is somewhat misleading in that the only two Kaipa members present are the Flower Kings' Roine Stolt and keyboardist, composer, Hans Lundin. Bassist Jonas Reingold, also of the Flower Kings, is present as well. Carrying on in Kaipa tradition is the use of absolutely horrid vocalists. The majority of the singing here is by Patrick Lundstrom. This guy over-emotes at every turn. He comes across more like a refugee from a bad Andrew Lloyd Weber production (is there any other kind). He really spoils things but doesn't manage to ruin them. The two female vocalists (one cut each) are no better. The compositions and musicianship are terrific but it is no small task getting past the vocals and embarrasingly weak lyrics. Thankfully there are a number of instrumental cuts. Proceed with caution...Simon

This is an album for the hardcore Kaipa fan. I own all of their 21st century releases, and this one is somewhat different. The newer Kaipa tends to be very "vocalist oriented" and often very uptempo. This one, apparently done in 2002 during the Roine era, is much more mellow. The female vocalist, so apparent is their later releases, is an afterthought on this one.

So while this one was interesting to me, it is not among their best. I really liked Mirrors of Yesterday, and Leaving the Horizon. Being early in the album I was encouraged, but it drops off after those.

So again, this is for avid Kaipa fans. If you are just getting into Kaipa (and I am a big fan) I would suggest Keyholder, Angling Feelings or one of their more recent releases.

I buy only albums that I listen to them first and if I rate them 5 stars I buy the CD after... This album like others from the band is a must listen too for lovers of progressive rock in the Neo-Prog or Symphonic Prog genre!
