1 stars This second Pendragon EP, is one of their weakest. The title track is an attempt to produce a rocking and rhythmy number which is rather unusual for Pendragon. Maybe a mistake ? Or maybe a number to play live during a joyful encore medley to make it funny (since I have already seen IQ playing "Caroline" from "Status Quo", why not ?). Apart from this potential use (which they won't do anyway, as far as I know) there is really nothing to be remembered.

"Searching" is my preferred track from this short EP. A fantastic and emotional guitar solo with nice background key. will punctuate this song. It is the only traditional Pendragon one featured here. Too short, unfortunately.

"Contact" is at the harder (?) edge in Pendragon's production. Might well be the only one till very recently (their album "Believe" for instance). Rather poppish and dull. Vocals are really awful (what happened to you, Nick) ? The track is saved thanks to a great guitar work throughout this (short) song.

This EP (on the contrary of some other ones) is totally useless as such. It is a piece of collection for completionists. One star.
