4 stars This is the 3rd release of the English Band, Pendragon... Pendragon, after the release of 2 interesting albums, demostrate for the first time their great capacity of composing nice progressive rock.

The World consists of lyrical and melodic, progressive tracks that sound much as Marillion. In fact, the band present its style always reminding some early Marillion albums. Nick Barrett with his beautiful voice (that sometimes reminds Rush's Geddy Lee) and his wonderful guitar playing gives the band its unique character. Clive's Nollan keys are perfectly arranged and played, colouring the whole concept. The rhythm set doesn't present something incredible, but it's always precise, presenting a nice perfomance.

With this album, Pendragon, are going to influence various progressive bands such as Arena and Shadow Gallery (especially at the vocals). Their music, always having this Genesis - Marillion taste, is dressed by a perfectly clear production. Actually, the whole concept's production is marvellous..Pendragon enter in the real prog paths and dimostrate how they're going to be one of the greatest and most influencing bands ever...

A perfect addition for any prog listener...4 stars.
