Nektar - Book Of Days (2008)
The 11th album from this British band.
Nektar was a quintet with a lineup of organ, keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
The band has been releasing some albums in the melodic rock genre for a while after they gave up being a progressive rock band.
The quality has not been particular good and I cannot say I have been looking forward to listen to and then review each one of these albums.
Book Of Days is another Nektar album in the melodic rock genre.
There is a lot of AOR here and some hints of neo-prog. The cover art-work hints at something more sinister than that. But the cover art-work is very much misleading.
There is some ballads here and they are pretty dire. That despite of the rather good vocals from Roye Albrighton.
There are some half-good songs here. And there are some songs which makes the listener cringe and turn of the music.
This is another decent album from Nektar. Another decent album from a previously great band.
