3 stars Arena's forth album named Immortal from 2000 is another worthy album from their catalogue for sure. With a new member on board Rob Sowden on voice and the keyboard player Cive Nolan from Pentragon and Shadowland fame , Mick Pointer an ex Marillion drumer - Arena took a step forward in their musical adventure with a more heavier and darker aproach then on previous album. The overall sound is much heavier then on The Visitor sometimes sounds like a metalized neo prog album - just to be checked The butterfly man, the best piece of the album to my ears and one of the best Arena pieces, is a total killer song, the guitar is awesome here. Another worthy tune to me is the Climbing The Net with an intro remind me a lot of Marillion early years. The longest track of the album Moviedrome is ok, little to long but for sure has some memorable passages, specially the instrumental sections are great. Overall a decent album, good but hardly essential or excellent. and I don't think is their best album I find The visior being better. 3-3.5 stars.
