4 stars The second album from Arena and an introduction of some of their best songs. Their very impressive debut album got the scene's attention. This, their follow up did not diminish their reputation.

Arena's music is a mix of old classic symphonic prog, commercial pop/rock and neo prog. A perfect combination for their time. Their sound is based the classic British keyboards & guitars sound. Nothing really new and exciting there.

The songs though is great. Pride is a battle cruiser of strong songs. From Welcome To The Cage via the best song here, Medusa, to the Crying For Help songs. There are both short songs here and some long epics. Some of the stuff here are a bit cringe worthy though. But I survive that too.

In short; this is a great neo-prog album which really cement Arena's position as one of my alltime favorite neo-prog bands.

4 stars
