3 stars I find this debut album from Nektar to be pretty special as it draws influences from various genres within the prog world. Symphonic prog, psychadelic/ space rock and Krautrock. Itīs actually a very nice blend. The album is a concept album and in the end a good epic prog rock album.

The instrumentation allows the guitar and the organ to be the most prominent instruments on the album. The rythm section plays pretty standard prog rock stuff but once in a while Krautrock rythms appear. The vocals are sometimes distorted for a psychadelic effect. The music can be compared to Eloy at times. Most of the songs are melodic and good songs. A song like Warp Oversight is mindless noises though. Psychadelic yes! But to me itīs a waste of time. Maybe it would help if I smoked some pot before listening to Journey to the Centre of the Eye ?

The sound quality is ok for the time, but nothing special.

This is really not my taste, but I must admit that I find Journey to the Centre of the Eye pretty intriguing without ever reaching excellent though. 3 stars for a good prog rock album.

UMUR | 3/5 |
