Review

Prog rock legends Nektar return with their triumphant 13th album - the first album of new material in over 4 years - that band leader Roye Albrighton is calling The best album we have ever made!

Time Machine showcases a new depth of songwriting, melodic complexity and musical adventurousness that hearkens back to early Nektar releases such as Remember The Future and A Tab In The Ocean!

Albrighton & Co. are joined by the immensely talented producer/musician Billy Sherwood formerly of Yes!

2013 has already been an incredible year for these veteran space rockers with reissues of catalog albums receiving rave reviews and a grand performance on Cruise To The Edge with Yes, UK, Steve Hackett and more!

Available on both CD and gorgeous 12 vinyl! --Official Press Release

Format: Audio CD
This is a pretty average set of late 1980's/early 1990's style pop songs with guitar and keyboard solos.(A "poor" Asia-like sound,maybe?) The lyrics are not much to mention....no flights of fantasy like the 1970's Nektar, and the tunes are backed by electronic drum sounds(although played by a human,I think?). The vocals are good, but certainly not what this band used to produce. So, I'd say if you really loved Nektar when they were churning out pop-oriented albums in the 1980/90's era,....well then this is your "dream" album. BUT if you really liked taking a "Journey to The Center Of The Eye",or dropping "A Tab In The Ocean" you are going to feel way out of place (and tricked into buying with false promise) when this well played, but "standard" set of pop songs comes out of your speakers.

Come now ,after all these years ,bands should know better than to claim a "return to the past" if it's not a return to their "classic sound"!

This is NOT your dream of a new "Tab...", "Recycle", or even "Magic Is A Child" for that matter. 1970's Nektar fans beware....proceed with extreme caution.

I did not find one sound reminiscent of this band's 1970's sound on this album. Sorry.....I just can't hear "classic" in this sound.

Progressive rock band Nektar shows a great depth of songwriting and experimentation (what their record label calls melodical complexity and music adventurousness) in a good way in their 13th album release titled 'Time Machine' (10 tracks). There may be only 10 tracks but the songs are quite long overall, "Diamond Eyes" (10:14), "If Only I Could" (9:55), the opening alternative rock sounding track "A Better Way" (9:17), "Time Machine" (8:06) and the shortest track "Talk To Me" is just under 4 minutes long. Total music time (65:32). The CD is well produced by heavyweight rock producer Billy Sherwood (former member of rock band Yes). The band will be promoting this great CD with many US tour dates this summer.

Stand-outs/gems/my favouites are the tracks "Set Me Free, Amigo" (wonderful vocals & melody), "Traquility" (great harmonies, incredible guitar overdrive & melody) & "Talk To Me" (great built-up to a beautiful melodical chorus). Good tracks include "A Better Way" (great guitar work), "Destiny", "If Only I Could" (alternate rock sound), "Mocking The Moon" (great harmonies & melody) & "Juggernaut" (up-tempo track, great guitar work & melody). Okay tracks are the title track "Time Machine" (alternative rock/indie sound) & the closing track "Diamond Eyes".

On overall, the progressive rock band Nektar is on a roll in this new CD release 'Time Machine': great songwriting, wonderful execution of beautiful music experimentation & excellent production. A highly recommende CD listening. You'll love this band for its musical ingenuity in this great release.

A truly stunning album from Nektar, stands up alongside their stuff from the glory years as well as the brilliant Evolution which was released back in the early 2000's .

Is it their best ever which is the hype going along with this release? I don't think so, but it is excellent. There are two original members here, Roye Albrighton the outstanding guitarist and also lead singer and principle songwriter these days and the ageless Ron Howden on drums, who sounds as good as ever. Also in the band is Klaus Henatsch who has been with Nektar for a while now and is a top keyboard player, he has been a great fit for them , I will always have a special place for Taff Freeman the original keyboard player for Nektar but Klaus is very, very good. And joining them for this album is the ubiquitous Billy Sherwood on bass. He is a fine bass player (I do miss Mo Moore but we can't have it all can we?) and fits in well here and he also handled the production end of things as he produced and mixed the album, I think the sound quality is really good.

A true return to form for this band, get it if you like Nektar, you won't be disappointed.

Having been disappointed with Nektar's "A Spoon Full of Time", I was apprehensive of purchasing "Time Machine" listening to 30 second audio bites. The first 3 cuts are good, listening for the first time. The second go round, "Diamond Eyes" is absoloutely killer! 2nd and third cuts are very good. I think the rest of the album is OK to good. Just my opinion. I unfairly compare all Nektar's newer releases to Tab, Remember the Future and my all time favorite Recycled. Every Nektar fan should get "Time Machine" It's the best in a long Time!.

Nektar kind of wavered in their early days between prog-rock (Tab in the Ocean, Remember The Future) and more mainstream stuff (Sounds Like This and Down To Earth). Their later albums like this one and "Evolution" have that fantastic fantasy/scifi artwork that makes you expect prog rock, but (like many of their contemporaries) kind of flirt with it musically rather that dive right in. So, don't expect another Remember the Future here, despite the brilliant cover (I have to admit, I love the artwork on this). The music is however, recognizably "Nektar" and has a bit of artistry and sensitive playing. I'm still trying to figure out if the whole album is a concept on time travel or if it's just an idea that's referred to a couple times. This is definitely more of a grower and a "quiet listening" album rather than an in-your-face progressive rock extravaganza, but not bad for what it is.
