2 stars Like their peers Twelfth Night, Pallas foreshadowed their celebrated studio career with a live release in 1981 (well, mostly live - it's filled out with some studio nuggets). However, Arrive Alive does not set Pallas in as good a light as Live as the Target does for Twelfth Night. Opening with the horrible, AORish Arrive Alive - proof positive that it wasn't just EMI's influence who pushed Pallas into writing garish arena rock nonsense - the album collects a number of interesting early Pallas tracks (Queen of the Deep, in particular, melds the approaches of Rush and Eloy). However, the recording quality of the live tracks is rather poor - the vocals are the only component of the music which really has any space in the mix, and they're rather shoddy vocals at that. One for the serious fans only.
