3 stars Long, emotional and bombastic, it's how I would describe "Not of this world". Between the both amazing Marquerade Overture and Believe, NOTW unfortunately doesn't reach the same heights.

Its main issue relies on the mix and the arrangements, where everything is so loud, the strings, pads and other synths (as the back vocals) are everywhere and floods everything, making listenning to the whole album a very tiresome experience.

Another main issue goes with its uneven structure. Having repeteated motifs among different songs is a cool idea, but the songs itselves aren't really strong. The exception goes for "A Man With Nomadic Trates" which is a masterpiece and it's a totally independent song, a Pendragon's classic.

3 stars.
