Customer Review

on 8 June 2008
I first heard this album in the mid 70`s and while nostalgia definitely plays a part in my re-collections,I don`t think they ever bettered it.I also think `Remember The Future` and `Down To Earth` are fine albums too,but they still don`t hit the high`s of `A Tab In The Ocean`,`Desolation Valley` and `Cryin` In The Dark`.
Engineered by the legendary Dieter Dierks,this album has a great and powerful sound which,if you have any interest in 70`s prog,will not fail to impress. Atmospheric,dreamy and dynamic are other terms which fit too.
I was lucky enough to see Nektar[or at least Roye Allbrighton and Ron Howden from the original line-up]in Wolverhampton,some two and a half years ago.They played this album in it`s entirety and it was a great night and good to see the band in fine form.In fact,on the night i`m pretty sure that Roye mentioned this album was their biggest seller in Britain.
Summing up,buy this album if you like early 70`s prog played by great musicians[all of them highly underrated] and with a great sound.In short,one of my all-time faves.
