3 stars "Pathfinder" is not as good as "Waters if Change", but it's far better than Beggars Opera later works, and IMHO is also better than "Act One", their first album. "Pathfinder" has some outstanding tracks: "The Witch" (the most developed track here), "Pathfinder" (with nice, heavy guitar and a great vocal harmony), "From Shark to Haggis" (another track with heavy guitar and a strong vocal performance, with a long organ solo which reminds me of traditional Scottish music - I'd love to hear bagpipes doin' at least a part of the organ solo) and the instrumental "Stretcher" (with a classical piano intro; the guitar melody reminds me a bit of Pink Floyd). Their cover of "McArthur Park" is also worth checking out, but I'm not familiar to Richard Harris's original version, so I'll not make comments about. Two tracks are far below than the others: "Hobo" (opening track, sounds me too poppy) and "Madame Doubtifire" (my least favourite track here). Overall, this is a good album, but newcomers will probably find "Waters of Change" more interesting, and casual fans will probably like it too. As the last decent offering by Beggars Opera, fans will need this one at their collections.
