From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars 3 songs from 1987 by Pendragon. The EP title track is "Red Shoes"- This has a early Marillion feel to it with somewhat dumb lyrics. "See her dancing in her Red Shoes, she's really swinging on a saturday night..." A very commercial, single type of recording. Second here is "Searching"- This is the best of the three songs on this release. A very moody piece that I seem to remember was also on a greatest hits release at some point. The gitar solo has a David Gilmour feel to it. The third song is "Contact"- The singing on this cut leaves a lot to be desired. A hardish poppy song with a driving beat and a good guitar solo that doesn't save the song enough from being derivitive. Overall, only the middle track really does anything for me. Otherwise, this is a pass. 2 stars for completionists/collectors.
