Kayak II is the second album by the Dutch progressive rock band Kayak. It was originally released in 1974 and reissued with a bonus track in 1995.

Contents

At first, the title was to be "His Master's Noise". But the band expected problems with the record label "His Master's Voice" (HMV), and so they chose simply for "Kayak". The album is also known as "Kayak II" and "Alibi" (after its first track).

The song "Wintertime" was the only single release from this album. "Serenades" was the b-side for the single "We Are Not Amused".
