NEKTAR - A Spoonful Of Time (2012)

NEKTAR is probably the most German-like of the seventies British bands, a fame that owes a lot to the town in which this act was founded (Hamburg) and to their stylistic approach.
Their earliest works were hard rock that drew heavily from the space-rock and later the band definitely turned melodic Prog releasing some mindblowing epic albums.
Nektar is celebrating their 43rd Anniversary releasing an album covering classic songs of all time aptly entitled “A Spoonful Of Time”, featuring an all-star guest line up.

Amongst the contributors we have Rick Wakeman, Geoff Downes, Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan, Ian Paice, Steve Howe and many more luminaries.
Doing a covers album can be tricky business; you need the right songs, but more importantly the inspiration and enthusiasm to bring them to life by your own interpretation. In the case of “A Spoonful Of Time” the results are satisfactory for most of these classic tunes.
Nektar chose 14 popular, mostly rock, songs from the last 40 years or so. Most are well known like Rush's "Spirit of the Radio", Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", The Doors's "Riders on the Storm" or Toto's "Africa".
Others, like Roxy Music's "Out of the Blue" and The Rolling Stone's "2000 Light Years from Home" may be a little more obscure for some.

On all covers, Nektar's interpretation basically stay faithful to the original melodies and arrangements of every song with, of course, some Prog variation.
I liked the majority, being Rush's "Spirit of the Radio", Toto's "Africa" (featuring Bobby Kimball on vocals), 10CC's "I'm Not In Love", the mellotron festival of "Blinded By The Light" and Door's "Riders On The Storm" with a long keyboard solo, the best of the bunch.
Steve Miller's "Fly Like an Eagle" and Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home" are the only weak covers for me, a bit flat in their development.
On the other hand, in the obscure O' Jays song, "For the Love of Money" (that drops more into the Motown category) Nektar version is truly well done with Ian Paice hitting the skins effectively.

Nektar's “A Spoonful Of Time” was produced by the band and mixed by Prog icon Billy Sherwood, who also played bass on some of the tracks.
The CD is a good Classic Rock collection of tunes covered with a Prog touch performed by these seasoned musicians with ease. It's a pleasure listening Bobby Kimball singing again or Billy Sheehan and Ian Paice playing something different from what they do in their bands.

Este CD es, entre otras cosas, un producto más de los logrados en 2012 por el ocupado e inquieto Billy SHERWOOD (‡). También es el 16º álbum oficial de estudio (^) de NEKTAR, grupo británico alineado en esta realización con Roye ALBRIGHTON (canto, guitarras), Klaus HENATSCH (teclados) y Ron HOWDEN (batería, percusiones, coros), más una enorme lista de músicos roqueros de alta alcurnia que apoyaron con la grabación del disco y aparecen como músicos invitados, a saber: Michael PINNELLA (SYMPHONY X) en 1, Mark KELLY (MARILLION) en 2, Geoff DOWNES (ASIA / YES) y Joel VANDROOGENBROECK (BRAINTICKET) en 3, Edgar FROESE (TANGERINE DREAM) en 4, Ian PAICE (DEEP PURPLE) y Nik TURNER (HAWKWIND) en 5, Steve HOWE (YES), Derek SHERINIAN (DREAM THEATER / BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION) y Mel COLLINS (KING CRIMSON) en 6, Simon HOUSE (HAWKWIND) en 7, Billy SHEEHAN (Mr. BIG) y Rod ARGENT (The ZOMBIES / ARGENT) en 8, Joakim SVALBERG (OPETH) y Ginger BAKER (CREAM) en 9, Simon HOUSE (HAWKWIND) en 10, David CROSS (KING CRIMSON) en 11, Jerry GOODMAN (MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA) en 12, Rick WAKEMAN (YES) en 13 y, finalmente, Bobby KIMBALL (TOTO) y Patrick MORAZ (YES / The MOODY BLUES) en 14.¡UF! Pero más allá de las manos que tocaron esta realización está la música, solaz del alma y alimento del estado de ánimo.

Discos similares a éste que vienen a la mente, donde un artista toca e interpreta temas de otros, son "Cover to Cover" y "Cover 2 Cover", claro, "Songs from the Mirror" y "Scratch My Back". La diferencia de "A Spoonful of Time" «Una Cucharada de Tiempo» con esos, es que aquellos suenan bien y son sencillos de gustar tanto por la selección de temas como por la inyección de estilo propio, mientras que éste es laxo y aburrido, además de carecer de un amplio espectro de emoción, muy a pesar de la buena dosis de psicodelia espacial característica de NEKTAR. Tal vez resulte más interesante la amplia gama de canciones elegidas para hacer el disco (tanto de época como de estilo) que la música en sí, aunque seguro estoy que habrá a quien le parezca que este disco es estupendo.
