4 stars This is the second solo album by PENDRAGON bass player Peter GEE, the follow-up to "Heart of David". The music is beautiful melodic symphonic progressive rock. It doesn't differ very much from the PENDRAGON albums, but there's also reminiscences to CAMEL, FISH, The FLOWER KINGS, Peter GABRIEL, early GENESIS, MARILLION and STEELY DAN. Two PENDRAGON musicians are participating on this album: Clive Nolan and Nick Barrett. The other musicians are A MILLION BLUES vocalist Simon Clew, JADIS drummer Steve Christey, SHADOWLAND guitarist Ian Salmon and Tina Riley on Choir vocals and Backing vocals. The lyrics are basically about love and romance with a religious theme throughout the entire album. There's a text on the cover that says it all: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." The highlights are "Always", the ballad "Lost and Found" with strong melodies, the acoustic "Faith", the jazzy "Never Could Say Goodbye" and the instrumental masterpiece "Orphans (All Alone in the World)". Peter has written all the songs, he's playing Keyboards, Fretted and Fretless basses, Electric, Classical & Acoustic guitars, and he's also painted the beautiful cover. This is a strong solo-album with good musicians and strong compositions, showing that Peter can do well, even without PENDRAGON. Unfortunately Peter's debut solo album is deleted, but I hope that it will be re-released sometimes in the future. Recommended!
