3 stars Interesting, but really not one of Pendragon's best compilations. All the songs are good, but actually A História has a much broader overview of this excellent band from England, including some EP tunes that were never available in any official full length CD. The addition of acoustic versions of The King Of the Castle and Paintbox are nice, but they are also available on the Not Of This World album. the vídeo for The Last Waltz is ok, but hardly a must have. The highlight here is the inclusion of Teh Walls Of Babylon, a much overlooked song from the much overlooked Windows Of Life, an amazing album that has the misfortune to be released between two classic, The World and the Masquerade Overture. But the real flaw of this CD is the fact it not includes the classic Sister Bluebird. I think this is Unforgivable for any best of CD concerning Pendragon.

Conclusion: All in all, good, but if you want a real best of compilation, stick with A Historia.
