3 stars Twenty years ago Pendragon emerged in the slipstream of Marillion who speerheaded the neo-progressive rock. I have always loved their sound, especially on stage they are so enthousiastic and Nick Barrett knows how to communcaite with his audience, with his voice and his guitar! Ten years ago this live CD was recorded in Poland, a very progrock friendly country as we have experienced in the past but also recently with Riverside, Satellite and Quidam. Pendragon treated the super enthousiastic crowd on songs from the albums The Jewel, The Masquerade Overture and The World, the songs (from slow to up-tempo) sound very recognizable featuring lots of sensitive guitar work and sumptuous kebyoards, a bit melancholical vocals and a tight rhythm section. When the band asks the crowd to sing a Polish song everybody is happy and we can enjoy a great live atmosphere! If you like melodic and accessible neo-prog, Pendragon will please you! By the way, the reason to write this review is that I met a fellow 40+ proghead in a record store in Amsterdam, he was searching for Pendragon and we had a nice, nostalgic oriented chat. At home I decided to play some Pendragon music, it turned out to be this wonderful album....
