I made a quickly mix tape for myself and to convince some friends that prog rock could be listenable and even juicy, particularly when it's in the boundaries of krautrock. It compiles the best music (in my opinion) the band produced in their first 6 albums (mostly from "Journey to the center of the eye" and "Remember the future", 80% maybe), in 2 long tracks.
NEKTAR really made one fabulous album, their first, "Journey to the center of the eye", in a really dense and varied krautrock style; their following albums also contain some really good material sometimes ... and also some of the worst. One exception is their 4th, "Remember the future", that is quite an exceptional and eccentric album, though dangerously progressive in some parts (and a voice in an unpleasant "Yes" style). But you may be open-minded enough to accept at first listen.

and you'll find "Journey to the center of the eye" there : http://rapidshare.com/files/19935998/NekJoyceney.rar.html
