3 stars Before to start my review, I want to say that she is made based just in 6 Tracks of 1983 original edition . The best analogies that I can do as the PENDRAGON's music is the following ; imagine a river whose course of the water makes curves in 90 degrees or still, a train that moves in high-speed and it tries to stop in a station reducing the speed to zero in less than one second. Such it is the form with that the different melodic passages that it composes each one of the tracks of the album are chained . Highly influenced by MARILLION (with to notable exception of Track 1 " The Walls of Babylon", that recalled me the opening of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" of PINK FLOYD) in the construction of melodic and rhythmic lines, however, without the same subtileness to organize them. PENDRAGON in spite of presenting in their music some very beautiful and pleasant themes , doesn't show, at least in this fourth studio album, ability in the crucial hour in that these same themes need to create an united line and to do the music flows easily, what would be a fort sign that this disk should be part of a progressive rock collection . In spite of that, due the beautiful passages that are how for instance, in Track 2 "Ghosts" with a guitar melody (with sustained notes) what does appear about the 2:28 min and repeat a little after that, in Track 5 "Nostradamus (Stargazing) ", and Track 6 " Am I Really Losing You? " that reminded me a lot "Soon" of YES. My rate is 3 stars.
