Nektar: Down To Earth

Richard Cromelin, Phonograph Record, February 1975

NEKTAR'S SMOOTH move from cosmic progressivism (though it was more genuinely rocky than that of past practitioners of the style) to a more straightforward rock 'n' roll sound is both a surprise and a pleasure. After all, you can only take so much of bluebirds from outer space, whereas you can never get enough of the real stuff. Down to earth indeed.
