3 stars Without question mid-90's were not only the most prolific and inspirational Pendragon era,but instrumentally the sound of the band was at its most balanced due to the tight line-up.So Nick Barrett's company released a 25-min. EP just a year after ''The Window Of Life'',the title of which was ''Fallen Dreams & Angels'', released again on Toff Records and featuring an excellent cover artwork.

From the very first notes you will be sure to face another unique Pendragon experience.Melodic Neo Prog with an emphasis on atmosphere and a great balance between pleasant instrumental passages and vocal-based arrangements.The sound follows the vein of ''The Window Of Life'' or ''The world'', softer passages with an almost ballad atmosphere are blended with sweet Barett guitar solos and Nolan's talented and inspired work on organ, synthesizers and piano with these great background keys and smooth symphonic moods.The light GENESIS and PINK FLOYD influences are still there, always wrapped under Pendragon's personal approach.The compositions flow again in a slow-tempo, but what the heck, this is Pendragon's music after all, far from complex textures but deeply personal and highly atmospheric.

You will not lose a whole different music dimension if you do not purchase this work, but be sure to face some well-crafted, elaborate and grandiose in its own way musicianship if you ever do.Strongly recommended...Pendragon were here to stay...3.5 stars.
