3 stars After 6 years Pendragon have finally released their eleventh LP. Most fans claim that it was worth the wait, and the music indeed deserves some praise: top-notch production, outstanding quality, great arrangements, some interesting instrumentation, and different influences. The album is full of melodies, with impressive guitar solos aplenty, but also has notable atmospheric textures, created mainly by synths and tron.

That said, the release can't boast of originality and I also can't call it particularly catchy, which is especially painful in ballad-y parts. You know that feeling when the music is great, highly melodic and all the stuff, but at the end fails to evoke many emotions. And also has those boring acoustic parts.

Solid 3.5 stars. Not a masterpiece by any means, but a very pleasant listen and definitely worth checking out. Usually albums like this get 3.9-4.1 here, and it is quite surprising to see (290, 4.17) here right now. But the band's fanbase is huge, y'know.
