Kayak - Out of This World (2021)

The 18th album from this Dutch band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

Three guests also provided violins.

Kayak is a band still going. Their music has not changed much from their debut album either. The result is a pretty large fanbase, three generations big. 

That is indeed impressive.

The music on this album is a mix of progressive rock, pop and rock.

There is songs on this album that makes me cringe. There are also a couple of good songs here.

The band no longer deliver music with a lot of technical quirks and melodies. Then again, they probably has never done that either in their long career.

The music is pretty simple and is sailing close, too close too meaningless pop-rock.

The result is a decent album but nothing more than that. This album is sorely lacking in good melodies and interesting details. A plus for the cover art work. I have been there myself.
