5 stars Four years have passed since "The Cross & The Crucible" and PALLAS have now completed their new opus "The Dreams of Men". A concept album about, quite literally, a lot of dreams of mankind: "the quest of true love or a better life, the striving for power, fortune, or bravery." Prog rock with gripping melodies, delicate details, surprising twists and turns, and well stuctured arrangements are the trademarks of those guys. It's a varied, complex, but most of all an entertaining album, and for a few, maybe a masterpiece. As to be expected, of the same high standard as the best of their work. «The Dreams Of Men » is in my opinion one of the best PALLAS songs ever be written - it changes direction then peaks well at the end.

My highlights are: "Bringer Of Dreams" (ten minute opener), "Ghost Dancers" (with celtic sounding violins), "Too Close To The Sun" (with flutes, celtic harp and the indulging harmony vocals accompanied by a wonderful FLOYD-like guitar solo) and "The Last Angel" (finally accompanied by celestial singing).

CONCLUSION: Excellent new opus from the legendary Scottish progressive rock band.
