4 stars Shares a lot with Diet Pepsi.

Oh yeah, another project for Clive Nolan, 'the bizziest man of the 90's'. And just like Diet Pepsi, you can swallow a lot of that without worrying about calories or prog proteins. The Masquerade Overture is a good progressive hypocaloric record. The low amount of complexity is as equal as the sweetness itself. This fine piece of music won't stimulate the technician in you BUT will definitely arouse the imagination. Pendragon has the knack to plunge the listener into a fantasy land, where fiddlers, jesters and harlequins caper in rainbow meadows.

LOTS of sugary mind scenes just waiting to come to life is at your reach.

Once again, just like Pepsi's alternative, The Masquerade Overture = low calories but not much aggressiveness.

Pop lovers, musically and drinkable, will find this enjoyable, colorful and as light as the bubbles of your favorite sparkling soda.
