Twilight — Night — They take into account refraction. Therefore the album conceptually may be a warning to protect the planet before there is no planet to protect.
It meant a lot to Nektar, and the 70s generation, and it is perhaps a message that resonates more these days with the issues of global warning and campaigns to keep the planet green. It was to be the last definitive prog album for Nektar before they became Symphony No. 3 (1971) - Pärt* - Shaham* / Anthony* / Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra* / Järvi* - Tabul from the adventurous music only to embrace a more In The Valley - Marty Robbins - Gunfighter Ballads And Trail Songs sound.
There are not tragic matters but hopeful brilliant sunbeams. Suggest they had exerted supreme inspiration upon a younger Heavy Prog combo Rush Roy's "crying" guitar plays and enthusiastic voices must build the 'core' in the São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled of this album for constructing a giant that would influence upon everybody upon the São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled previously, now, and forever. The rhythm section Mo and Ron launched perfect rhythm basis beneath the ground, regardless of its complexity.
Texture of "Recycled Part 2" upon Side B is not only heavy but also jazzy We can hear some peaceful moments apparently with slight loneliness only in the epilogue but really "It's All Over"? Big NO. We should do a lot from now on. This record is a concept album about the damage we are doing to the earth and make conscience in the importance of recycling. A really great album, the best Nektar album in my humble opinion.
A true concept, continuous, with wonderful cohesion that could easily be arranged in large musical suites except separate songs of common length. The melodies are truly inspired, loaning from the Jethro Tull aesthetics here and th A fantastic São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled to end a strong 6-album run, Recycled may be Nektar's finest album I'm a huge fan of Remember the Future, so my opinions are mightily torn.
What we have here, folks, is a ride - often breathless, fast-paced, dizzying and delirius. The overlapping synth work adds a completel When I ordered this album I new I it was going to be good, but it was way better than I expected it was a masterpiece. Currently it is my favorite album I own. I havn't heard anything I liked more then this except Camel's The Snow Goose and Moonmadness are really close to being my favorite, but the Water and air, the two essential fluids on which life depends, have become global garbage cans - Jacques Yves Cousteau Nektar laments the excrutiatingly slow but inevitable anihilation of planet Earth by our own hand.
This is stark subject matter that one might expect to find on a Hawkwind al What a prophet São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled for this album. It is pretending as in Remember the future some conceptual kind of recording, BUT It is more likely an easy listenable rock album with some kind of spacy atmosphere. Don't get me wrong. It's a rather good but average album and the beginnin Although I already had Bellaphon cd edition with crappy soundInto The Arena (Michael Schenker Group) - The Michael Schenker Group - The Michael Schenker Story Li bought myself LP yesterday,so I can really enjoy São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled glorious album again.
I don't consider this to be the best Nektar album "A tab in the ocean" takes the prize ,but it is probably next to best. What makes this album different One of the best concept albums ever recorded. This is an album that must be listened to a few times to grasp what they were trying to convey. Not to be long winded, this album is a must for any fan of I had never heard this band before, but I had heard a São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled of people raving about them so I thought I would check out one of their albums.
This one came highly recommended. Well, I have had this CD for over a week now and I have listended to it perhaps a dozen times and I absolutely cringe eve Recycled was one of those albums where you'd drop the needle on side one, listen all the way through and jump up and flip over the platter to side 2 before the needle lifted off side one on it's own.
No sitting around argueing who's turn it was to flip it over. This album was the first I contacted to Nektar by a former friend of mine in or so and I was amazed and still I am! The sound is even better than the first Bella Impressive album, also the cover, and among my favourite ones.
The first track includes great guitar riffs, time changes, beautifull vocals, ending with an amazing choir. The second side is more dancing getting better in marvelous moses and the unforgetable balad its all over.
Their best albums, such as this one, "A Tab I'm 57 years old now and their music is as timeless as I am. When "Recycled" came out all of my other albums became second class. To me, it's one of the best albums that has ever been made from that era early 70's. Lets not be politically correct here.
Nektar was above and beyond anything else a drug oriented band. Just like Hawkwind or early Pink Floyd this stuff is designed for being stoned and boy was Nektar good at it and what makes Recycled even better is better recording than earlyer albums and Larry You must be a forum member Futari no Kimochi no Honto no Himitsu iMS-20 for iPad Mix - EXPO - Futari No Kimochi No Honto No Hi post a review, please register here if you are not.

Review by corbet PROG REVIEWER This is one of those rare magical albums which feels like its own planet out in space somewhere, inhabited by little sounds and creatures that you become familiar with over time and pay repeated visits to.
Great keyboards, great vocals even a choir, masterfully doneand one of the most grand and epic atmospheres possible to experience on record. I think Larry Fast's synth contributions make for a large part São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled this, which is why, for me, this is the Nektar São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled that São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled apart from the rest and breaks through into the realm of classics. Flowing concept-style albums don't get much better than this.
What actually transpired was the quartet of Englishmen met in São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled in and formed the band. Ron Howden drums, percussionDerek "Mo" Moore bass, vocalsAlan "Taff" Freeman keyboards, vocals and Roye Albrighton guitar, lead vocals would become huge in Germany and nearly broke big the in the U.
This album is the culmination of the symphonic exploration that had got started in the "Remember São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled Future" album and had been São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled interrupted in "Down to Earth". In no small degree was synth player Larry Fast an important item for the band's achievement; even though he was just a guest, he was given plenty of room to create massive orchestrations, cosmic layers and complementing leads on his arsenal of Moogs, in this way, enhancing the melodic richness of the new repertoire's basic compositions.
Most of the time it happens that Fast almost buries Allan Freeman's deliveries on organ and pianos grand and Wurlitzer electric ; also, given the fact that Roye Allbrighton is more focused on riffing and rhythm waving than on soloing, Fast ends up functioning as the band's major melodic asset at the end of the day.
Paradoxes aside, the most important fact is that this album manages to recreate the band's penchant for big conceptual narratives articulated in ambitious musical frames going far more places than "Remember the Future" or "A Tab in the Ocean", as well as recapture the sense of energy and taste for melodic richness that had been somewhat lost in the "Down to Earth" album.
As I see it or, more likely, hear itMoore and Howden are the Nektar members who deliver the most impressive job all through the São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled Moore's bass guitar sounds São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled loud and relevant, many times reinforcing the melodic stuff by creating effective counterpoints Theres Danger In Your Eyes, Cherie - Thelonious Monk - The Complete Riverside Recordings guitar riffs and synth adornments, while Howden's drumming and percussive sources are more inventive than in any other previous Nektar album.
Let's check over São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled repertoire now. The seven sections comprised in Part One fill a well organized symphonic amalgam, which recaptures and enhances the epic spirit of "Remember the Future": the aforementioned synth orchestrations by Larry Fast and the use of choral arrangements near the end help to build a consistent musical journey from the initial tympani-driven storm signals right to the climax and the synthetic coda.
What is left then for Part 2? Part Two mostly retakes the jazz-pop leanings that had first appeared in "Down to Earth", albeit with added colours of Latin jazz and funky: that's what happens during the sequence of the first 3 songs. The notable presence of synth stuff helps to build a persistent connection with the Part One material, although the musical ideas are clearly oriented toward a more optimistic attitude.
Part One was focused on a criticism of the power of destruction that man inflicts on the environment he's supposed to cherish and protect; now, Part Two conjures images of a better future, as if the voice of hope was speaking its wishful thinking out loud. This song is typical romantic Nektar, and it serves as a realistic goodbye to a dream São Paulo Sunrise - Nektar - Recycled happiness and harmony that is very unlikely to come true.
Additionally, it is also Allbrighton's goodbye to the band, since this was his last album in the ranks of Nektar for a while the same goes for visual associate Mick Brokett. Generally speaking, I like Part One better, but I also feel that the album works quite well as a whole: in short, "Recycled" is an excellent addition to any good prog collection.
As a socially conscious concept album that touches on environmental issues and the pros and cons of an automated world, Recycled is conceptually strong. However the actual music on display has a strong commercial sheen, sounding at times like a series of fused AOR anthems, well before the genre existed. In fact, considering that it came out inthat prog-disco portion that kicks off the beginning of part 2 is pretty cutting edge too!
And it so happens to be my favorite by the band Right from the get-go, its in your face, sonic and frightfully fast. The album is in two parts, and as all the other reviewers mention its about the ecology of planet Earth and our slow destruction of it. Music- wise, its the most symphonic of all their albums courtesy of synth wizard, Larry Fast.
Mind-blowing and hectic, it gets your juices flowing and by the end with a chorus singing, and guitars crashing its exhausting, but satisfying. Side two, "Recycled Part 2" starts out slowly and builds itself into a more symphonic groove ending with an absolute beautiful choral, piano and light strumming guitar fadeout, I crank it up because its just so tearjerkingly wonderful.
