3 stars Here we have an album that is harder to rate than to review. And that's because there is one excellent song on it (almost masterpiece) whilst the other ones are miles behind it. So then it's always the question what to do with the rating ?

The magnum opus of this album I'm talking about is of course the opening track, Always. The first half isn't even that great but when the instrumental second part takes its turn, well you can sit down and enjoy I can tell you. First there's a great keyboard solo lasting for 1,5 minutes before the grand finale starts with a mindblowing guitar solo by Nick Barrett.

It's really sad to say that after this song the album is more or less over. I don't want to be disrespectful to Peter Gee's contributing musicians but the singing is below par and the other compositions are good at best but nothing to get excited about. Heart's Desire is an example of this and 3rd track Lost and Found the singing is less annoying but it's a mediocre mellow song without substance. Next two are hardly more impressive (5th track is ok with nice jazzy playing) until we arrive with the 6th track (Orphans) the only other song that is more than acceptable but there we have the problem that it really goes for half the song (the second part with again great guitar). In the first half is some annoying singing I have to say. The other three songs are no better than the aforementioned few so there we have the problem for the rating. One superb song, one half good, the other 7 nice at best but actually poor and falling short in quality. I love Pendragon and therefore Peter Gee and out of respect I will give three for the whole album (2,7).
