4 stars This CD is not unlike one by a Swedish band called Galleon. The songs on this release are neo-prog, which means (I guess) their sound is somewhat derivative of Marillion, although that's pretty much where the similarity ends. "Pawn" is an enjoyable romp and the band has carved a niche all its own with this release. The numbers here are catchy and melodic with some great hooks. Perhaps the only fault I find with this band is a seeming relucatance to do anything "risky". But don't let that detract from the enjoyment that can be derived from listens to this CD. My favorite track here is the title track "Pawn" with a majestic, anthemic feel to it.

Fans of IQ, Galleon, Marillion, et al, should find this an enjoyable listen.
