Format: Audio CD
This is album number five for the prog duo of Niclas Flinck and Carl Westholm. The two of them formed Carptree in 1997, releasing their debut album in 2001, since when they've made a bit of a name for themselves in the world of prog, especially with their 2003 album "Superhero" and its follow-up "Man Made Machine", which came out on the major minor label, InsideOut in 2005.

A couple of years on, and "Insekt" came out, with this release being a sequel of sorts. As on the last few albums, they've brought in a series of guest musicians under the banner of the No Future Orchestra, to fill out their musical vision. And it's very good. The last few albums have seen them operating in a dark, symphonic style, which fans of mid-period Marillion and Pendragon will find familiar.

The arrangements and atmospherics are second to none, and songs like 'Dragonfly' and 'Sunrays' are full of nuances, and twists and turns, which reward repeated plays. Elsewhere, the opening track, 'Kicking And Collecting' has some great keyboard work, and the instrumental number 'Between Extremes' manages to be both complex and accessible at the same time.

Fans of the genre will find a great deal to like here, as the duo offer up another excellent prog release.

HASH(0x9844e8c4) out of 5 stars The outer limits of prog! 19 Nov. 2010
By David Parker - Published on Amazon.com
I've all but given up on the prog scene lately, as I find so many of the bands today are simply mimicking what came before them. Or, they think that instrumental prowess (i.e. noodling) makes for a great song. Not for me. Everybody in prog either sounds like watered-down Genesis, Yes or Pink Floyd, with so many bands now adding in that Metallica heavy-guitar edge, which Dream Theatre co-opted years ago. (For me, Porcupine Tree is the only band who are actually writing great songs in the tradition of prog past). Two years ago a friend turned me onto Carptree, and I was blown away by their last album "Insekt". It was like a dark, symphonic Genesis! Great songs, strong vocals, synths, and lots of layers and turns - and best of all DRAMA! This new one, though, is even better (albeit shorter, which is unfortunate, because I didn't want the album to end). Overall, better writing and more accessible than "Insekt", (which if you've heard that masterpiece, is saying a lot). Check out the samples here, even though they barely hint at what's really there. If you like early-Genesis-style progressive rock, with a dark, moody undertow, this is the band for you!(P.S. I hate the term "prog"!!)
HASH(0x98d4c1f8) out of 5 stars Very Good Symphonic Prog from Sweden 1 Oct. 2010
By Edgar Sanilevich - Published on Amazon.com
I have to admit that this is my first contact with Carptree so that I can't and I won't compare this album to their previous ones.
Carptree is actually a duo - Carl Westholm(composer, producer, keyboards) and Niclas Flinck(vocals, composer, lyrics), almost always added by an additional group of people called NFO(No Future Orchestra).
Nymf is their fifth album and a sequel to their previous album called Insekt.
If you like symphonic prog with beautiful melodies ,lots of drama, theatrical/operatic vocals, somptous keyboards then this one is definitly for you.
Enjoy it!
