3 stars After the fiasco of Kowtow (mediocre album by the way), Pendragon returned to their pure Neo-Prog origins heard in The Jewel and other early recordings with a record which should mark their style in decades to come.

In The World we can hear the most classic Pendragon line up with a very Barret's guitar oriented Neo-Prog sound, some glimpses of Nolan's keyboard leadership and with the typical weak and out of tone vocals of Barret himself.

Nevertheless, this gives the band an extra flavor which together with their mixture of English melancholy and epic approach to prog makes the listening of The World rewarding and interesting enough.

Best Songs: Back in The Spotlight, The Voyager, The Last Waltz.

Conclusion: if you like albums like The Masquerade Overture and Not of this Wold, you will surely enjoy The World although it does not has the quality of this later records in terms of production and songwriting.

My rating: ***
