4 stars PENDRAGON's release of "The Masquerade Overture" represents one of the 90's strongest prog releases yet! This brilliant recording sets new heights for neo-prog acts in terms of complete recordings. "The Masquerade Overture" really does capture the essence of concept-like story line and takes the listener into a completely new world. I love the mix of opera, orchestra and the symphonic tendency of PENDRAGON which seems to work to perfection on this release. There are some nice and tasty guitar / bass parts scattered throughout all of the songs. At several key points I get a strong PINK FLOYD feel, but I may be the only one who gets this? Nick Barrett adds some great vocals throughout which give it that unmistakeable PENDRAGON feel.
