5 stars Wow! What a surprise made by Pendragon! What a harmony! A candidate for best neo-progressive album of all time and a candidate for album of the year! The best album made by Pendragon so far and the first that deserve 5 stars! It is interesting firstly because of the fact that one veteran band with 30 years old career make something smashing like that. The album is constructed with so much variety and non-predictable moments, full of ideas and logical links between them. Secondly this album is successor of much weeker album like Believe. The first song of the album - Indigo - is typical long progressive rock song with two different parts - faster and harder first part and guitar softer blues-like second part. The second song - Eraserhead - probably the best Pendragon's song of all time. Musical variety and balance. Afterthat follows Comatose suite divided in tree songs. The most artistic part of the album with shiftings in tempo and repeating of some ideas in other vision. The second part begins from 3/4 of the first one. The third part begins with some ideas from the beginning of the first one, but again developed. The sixth song - The Freak Show - again mixture between harder and softer sounds. The last song - It's Only Me - the most melancholic song on the album and probably the weakest one(, but what a weakness!). The other important thing about the album, I want to say is the very balanced mixture all around the album between harder parts and softer popy and new wave parts, typical for neo-progressive rock music! Undisputed 5 stars!
