5 stars Yes, another 5 star recommendation from yours truly here! I don't have this on cd yet, but I did tape it from a friend's cd a few years ago. Only four tracks here, but again, each one is of tremendous quality. 'The Third World In The U.K.' opens here, and is another mini epic. Nice piano from Clive here, and beautifully understated guitar from Nick. Excellent rhythm changes make this song truly progressive, and then the nice quiet piano finishes the piece again. Very good. 'Dune' is, for Pendragon, a very short and almost commercial song, set at a brisk tempo yet still melodic. The band are very tight here, and there is none of the usual long instrumental passages here, but still a fine song. 'Sister Bluebird' is my favourite on this cd. Classic Pendragon here; a slow, thoughtful start reminds me a little of 'Breaking The Spell' before the middle of the song brings in a splendid guitar solo. Lovely playing here from Nick, and then, as the end approaches, the whole pitch of the song changes, and Clive Nolan makes the goosebumps rise with a brilliant keyboard backdrop to the finale. Superb! Finally, 'Fallen Dreams And Angels' itself appears. This is another finely crafted song, in the romantic vein, and is instantly catchy and appealing to the casual listener. Although it is only an E.P. I recommend it strongly.
