Being a big Progressive Rock fan, I’m surprised I haven’t really listened to Kayak before this new album. Most of the songs were around the 3 minute mark, but there are 3 songs that break the 8 minute mark. “La Peregrina”, which I really like. Starting off the song with great guitar work from Marcel Singor, then the vocals come in with keyboards (piano), then the song changes tempo to a quicker pace. “Walk Through Fire” begins with both guitar & keyboards for a great intro. As with “La Peregrina”, the songs picks up with some more great keyboard emphasis. The song slows down again, then pops back up again. Just what you would want from a great Progressive Rock band. Don’t get me wrong, some of the short 3 minute songs are really great too. Take “All That I Want” really grabs you from the beginning of the song and keeps you there as you find yourself singing along without even knowing the song. Another Best of 2018 album, as you’ll see in my next post. I rate this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. I will be listening to more Kayak after this. Kayak is Bart Schwertman on vocals, Michael Singor on guitars, Ton Scherpenzeel, the veteran of the band, plays keyboards, bass, vocals & is the composer, arranger & producer. Also Lean Robbemont on drums.
