3 stars If you want to hear clear sounds of Pendragon, or how good acoustic guitar can sounds with P.'s music for example A Man of Nomadic Traits sounds almost like album version (from previous year's Not of This World). The reason is simple, whole NoTW uses acoustic guitar a lot in combination with Nick Barrett's voice. But also uses keyboards a lot, which can't be here heard so much, to prevent ruining acoustic vision. And if Clive Nolan play them, it's not this heavy, space sounding synth tone, it's rather calm and background-like type. It's nice to hear it from another point of view.

3(-), songs are rather calm. Not that I can't stand hearing Pendragon like that, but I don't think their songs are suitable for this version. There are many better. Listenable, but Pendragon fan will lack a lot. Maybe unfair, but it's sad truth.
