5 stars Euon Lowson had charisma. I saw Pallas play live in a small sweaty Scottish venue with 200 or so people in the palm of his hands. The Heathery Bar in Wishaw had small tables seating 5-6 to a table,and a well stocked and very busy bar. A small dance floor was to the front of the stage. No one danced. Pallas played The Heathery twice,and on the second visit Euon had been replaced. Something was definitely missing the second time. Euon was a showman,he put his soul into the songs. I remember he put on some kind of mask/helmet with lots of mirrors on it during one song. The prop was held in his hands and moved slowly towards his head during the song,being placed fully on at the climax of the track. The meagre lighting offered by the venue was still sufficient to cast a dazzling array of light and reflections,in turn blinding and illuminating. The effect,along with the stunning music, was almost hypnotic. This album is Pallas at their best. Rise and Fall parts one and two, and Ark of Infinity are pure class,theatrical prog reminiscent of Gabriel and Genesis. Play this album and imagine Euon grabbing the attention of an 18 year old,who was yet to be enthralled by a band called Marillion,at the same venue,later that year.What a treat.
