17h 20m. Nektar sounds like this lp UK press. 1 day. OG 1973 Prog Rock 2 LP Set: Nektar - Sounds Like This - United Artists UAD 60042. If previous Nektar album was a great example of psychedelic heavy rock from 70-s, almost masterpiece, this third their album is different. First of all, it is recorded live in studio during two days, and almost without prepared material. What means, it is long (double LP) studio based live jam. And it feels. Songs are much more simple and heavy. In fact, in too many places music there sounds as played by Uriah Heep or Deep Purple. With heavy keyboards passages, plenty of guitar soloing and long rockin' compositions.

Those expecting Nektar's regular brand of muscular Symphonic Prog might get a severe shock, as this album is unremittingly pure heavy rock: high quality, inventive and exciting, but stripped of Prog fancies. Indeed, Albrighton has here become an axe god and the band have morphed into Uriah Heep, giving a flavour of their concert sound - loud, proud and very energetic, the sound of a tight outfit who know and understand each other well and are prepared to stretch themselves on long improvisational jams. The first CD of Dream Nebula's latest 2CD set contains the entire original album as released in 1973, expertly remastered as always and excellently packaged. The second disc contains previously unreleased material left over from the original recording sessions from October 1972. Generally, this earlier material is inferior, justifying the band's decision to re-record it.

The next album, Recycled (1975), was stylistically close to bands like Gentle Giant and carried on the band's close connection with progressive rock. Albrighton left the band in December 1976, just prior to the studio sessions for Nektar's first major-label release, Magic Is a Child (1977). The remaining members were joined by guitarist/vocalist Dave Nelson at this point. Nektar cut one more album, Evolution, before Freeman was replaced by Tom Hughes. Dembo and Hughes left in August 2006, citing communication problems, money issues, personality issues and trust in the management issues. Dembo was briefly replaced by a returning Carmine Rojas, before the band settled on a line-up that consisted of Albrighton, Howden, guitarist Steve Adams, bassist Desha Dunnahoe, and keyboardist Steve Mattern.

B-side recorded live at Chipping Norton Studio 27th March 1974 from a jam between the hours of . 0 and . 0 . Remixed at Chipping Norton Studio 31st March 1974.

Nektar's contribution over the last 40 years has quite rightly earned them their place in any 'Progressive Rock Hall of Fame'. But the band is much more than a 'Prog Legend', the Nektar brand of innovative composition, performance and visuals is simply unique. Nektar's contribution over the last 40 years has quite rightly earned them their place in any 'Progressive Rock Hall of Fame'.

Sounds like they have someone with deep pockets investing in the band. They are casino acts more like tribute bands, at least the so called Focus has Thys Van Leer and Uriah Heep has Mick Box but this is no Nektar for me either.
