5 stars After 'Believe', which I thought was very poor, I thought that Pendragon would never top 'Masquerade', but to my delight, they have. I think this is an outstanding prog album, but I cannot work oput exactly why it is their best. It is recognisably Pendragon- Nick Barrett's usual gruff vocals and melodic guitar, and glorious keyboard sounds. Maybe the slightly heavier edge helps, and perhaps Clive Nolan's keyboards are a bit less formulaic than on 'Masquerade'. I have enjoyed listening to the album dozens of times, and it still sounds like their best. No particular track stands out, although 'Freak Show' packs a punch that is rare in previous albums.
