This is no place for the innocent This is no place for the broken-hearted This is no place for the innocent This is no place for the weak, faint-hearted These are the days of the ambassadors of wonder These are the days of love These are the days of the architects of life So open up your eyes.
Society is so well intentioned Osiris reborn in the East The secret societies of Babylon And what now to believe The eyes of the world are upon you Watching each move that you make I journeyed to find the God of dreams. The secret societies of Babylon Osiris reborn in the east The parchments and pyramids of man The meaning of which is forgotten Lies under a deep bed of sand Far from the view of human eye.
Void of all responsibility Encouraged by some inner call. Destination unknown To steer this great ship through time and space Through the cold and dark abyss. Are we falling into free-fall Set the controls and steer that great ship Mankind Through the black holes past the asteroids To safety. It still means so much And when you feel broken And you look up to the stars When the humans could no longer love Remember who you are.
It's probably this album does not offer sufficient hike-up points in its overall composition. But it's worth owning the CD as the album has good melody of its composition. Keep on proggin'.! Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW i-Rock! Be there! The songs I've known before couldn't convince me.
After hearing this for nearly 20 times I can declare: 'Believe' is much more than a mainstream rock album and I'm sure Nick Barrett spent all his tears and his last drop of blood when he wrote and produced this songs. Nick Barrett is dominating the songs and something is strange: Clive Nolan keeps himself or is mixed into the background. But it's not Album) turn to criticize this. Before we are invited to enter the dancefloor it all starts with a wonderful spheric opener.
Combining a metal guitar, strings, celtic voices and a talkbox is very curageous. But it works - excellent! Part one 'For your journey' opens and for the first time I thought they had invited Steve Hogarth. A spoken word peace accompanied by Nolan. Worthy to be an important addition to any prog music collection Four years have passed between their last studio album "Not Of This World" and this one. So, three albums in nine years.
You can't call this very productive, can you? But Nick admits than he is kind of lazy, so I have always been rather reluctant to consider Pendargon as a neo-prog band. To me, they sound so symphonic that symph prog is their genuine genre. So far. Because with this album, the music is harder, almost no symphonic at all; which is rather a big Album) in comparison with their previous work.
Here and there, they will revert to their original and beautiful style but only too scarce I'm afraid. Symphonic intro and brilliant spanish guitar play. We'll also get the brilliant and so emotional guitar Part IV - Two Roads - Pendragon (3) - Believe (CD from Nick which has turned me into a Pendragon fan. Pendragon has also released several long compositions throughout the years.
This album will feature one as well. An almost twenty minutes suite called "The Wishing Well". It is made of four "movemenst" of which the first one is truely stratospheric.
The very special female voice that can be heard on the opening track gets back here as well. It is almost a recitation from Nick. The whole being somewhat boring, I must say. Sounds a bit pretentious. Things get a bit better with "So By Sowest". Actually, this is a typical Pendragon song. Wonderful harmony, emotions and all the stuff, you know. Some will argue that they always sound the same, but that's how I like them. Beautiful and accessible music. It doesn't hurt, really. Give it a try.
During this number, some very nice acoustic guitar moment will transport you to the good side of prog heaven because, there's no doubt there is a heaven for progheads, right? So, welcome not to my nightmare but to my prog world. This song is my fave from this album. I must say that the magic has gone a bit.
This album is my least favourite one since "Kowtow" released in But I guess that it is only normal to be less efficient once in a while. Even if Pendragon has sounded rather similar for some albums, it is really obvious during "We Talked" that the inspiration is just short on here. And that's the problem with this Pendragon recording. Too much. And you know how I like this band. But, I "believe" that fairness obliges me to say so. There is also no real link between the four "themes".
Each one being more a song of its own than a part of an ensemble. This album is by no means a bad one, but I cannot be thrilled either. What I have appreciated enourmously with Pendragon was Nick's ability to write simple and beautiful prog songs with great melodies and fabulous guitar breaks. Almost none of these are included here or too briefly like in "Two Roads".
I have read on their web-site that they are reducing their live appearences because they want to concentrate on their next studio album. I hope it will lead to something more interesting than this one.
It is not "Learned Curved" which will change my opinion although a very nice guitar breaks finally appears during the second half of the song. The last number features again some nice acoustic guitar notes, but it is definitely too melancholic. An inspired guitar moment which is very much remininscent of Carlos, I'm sure you know whom I am talking about will only comfort me in my judgment that toolittle of these are availble here.
I would rate this album with five out of ten, but since it is not yet possible, I will downgrade it to two stars. I just hope that the next Pendragon studio album will be better. The album starts off with an ethereal intro for "Believe", but suddenly launches into a great guitar bit by Nick for "Not For The Innocent". Nicks vocals sound very sinister as he's on his soapbox about the state of the world and the people who "run" it. Very nicely mixed with acoustic guitars adding a nice layer during the more rocking sections of the chorus, but with a classic Barrett solo towards the songs end.
A great way to begin the disc. Barrett cuts in with a very Gilmour-ish guitar intro that reminds me of a less grittier "Sorrow" from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason that yields to a lovely acoustic guitar interlude. Such a different sounding disc altogether thus far with the implementation of different percussion instruments, guitars and varying soundscapes. Ultimately, we're reacquainted with the classic Pendragon sound of driving rhythms, soaring keys, and heartfelt solos.
Sandwiched in the middle of the album is the epic "The Wishing Well", which is broken up in 4 sections. Sounding like a continuation from Not Of This World, Clive Nolan adds a lovely choir of keys and synth underneath Barrett's advisory speech of part 1.
Part 2 lifts off from the more subdued part 1 to more beautiful guitar by Mr. Barrett He's truly an overlooked gem in the world of prog, in my opinion. Simply brilliant in it's construction. The Wishing Well suite continues with part 3: "We Talked" with more fingerpicking guitar by Nick, but a solid rocker with indian chants and tribal screams. Very vulnerable and passionate lyrics. Not necessarily Pendragon's strongest song in terms of structure and lyrics, but still showcasing Barrett's vocals in a more tender state.
For me, Believe could be a turning point for Pendragon. Maybe it was the time away from one another that sets it apart, but it doesn't sound like any of it's predecessors. I do like the use of acoustic guitars on Believe and hope it continues in the future of their music. Absolutely essential in my eyes. This is what we could name properly and doubtlessly prog-rock.
Also the production, the arrangements and the band's musicianship are enjoyably high. Lyrics are fair but they simply may reflect the way I felt them, since English isn't my native language. Fine vocals and nice guitars are heard. And then we are faced with a 21' plus suite that goes by the name of 'Wishing well', Part IV - Two Roads - Pendragon (3) - Believe (CD by its shift is divided into 4 songs linked by some of the best bridges heard currently in the prog-rock scene - a dazzling adventure, a blend of fine pungent and uplifting moments, from hectic to peaceful, from nothingness to completeness, from here to nowhere; this special epic-like segment pays per se the album in its entirety.
If one wants to divide the suite, I recommend being amused with '2 roads'. A masterpiece? Not totally sure, let's wait years ahead but the prospects are good.
For awhile, an excellent addition to any prog music collection. So it became the 2nd option: make a radical change. Well, let's not exxagerate, it's a pretty big change but at least I can still recognize it as Pendragon. But where the astonishing compositions were plenty on NotW on this album they made way for a very diverse range of songs, some very good but others far less.
I can be more precise here: the first four, among which the epic consisting of 4 parts The wishing Well don't impress me really, they are good songs and I really have a hard time here not trying to compare them to NotW. But even if I don't: these four songs reach an average of about 3 stars to me.
But fortunately the sting is in the tail here. Learning Curve and mainly the gorgeous The Edge of the World make up for a great deal. I think the last track is the most beautiful ballad Pendragon has ever produced. But alas it is not enough to save this album from a 3 star rating although it's rounded down 3, So it was supposed that sooner or later they have to make some changes. Still I was surprised how different it turned out.
This is the first Pendragon record that does not sound much like Pendragon. We all know that Nick Barrett is the chief songwriter and driving force behind the band. But the others always made it sound like a group effort. That's what gave Pendragon its distinctive mark. Believe on the other hand sounds too much like a Barrett's solo album. Why do I say that? First it has too much acoustic guitar on it and very few of Barrett's trademark electric guitar licks.
The songs are below average by Pendragon's standards, of course and the worst of all: Clive Nolan's majestic keyboards are nowhere to be found! In fact I had to go back to the CD booklet credits to be sure if he really even played on the album. It could be anyone on keyboards and the result would be the very same. And it also can be said about bass and drums sadly, also the last contribution by long time member and drummer extraordinaire Fudge Smith.
Please don't get me wrong. It's a good album to hear if you don't remember what those guys have done in the recent past. It's different very! Maybe a necessary step back before the next release, I don't know. Some songs are even very good.
But for a band like Pendragon, very good may be not enough. Two and a half stars. Male vocals join in as well. Nice beat in this one as vocals arrive a minute in. A calm 4 minutes in but it kicks back in a minute later with some great guitar. The guitar takes over tastefully, then acoustic guitar. The vocals before 3 minutes sound fantastic.
Love the guitar before 5 minutes and 6 minutes in. First up is "For Your Journey" which begins with more atmosphere as Nick comes in vocally. She's back after 2 minutes. Spoken male vocals follow. The sound gets fuller after a minute. Electric guitar and more passionate vocals are up next. It calms down again. Some nice soaring guitar before 4 minutes.
It blends into "We Talked". Electric guitar before a minute as vocals come in and the tempo picks up. This is catchy. Acoustic guitar and vocals to start as the sound gets fuller after a minute.
Soaring guitar 3 minutes in. Nice bass too. I like the beat with guitar after 4 minutes that continues right to the 6 minute mark. Det Goda. Det Vackra. Det Fula. Misthyrming Algleymi 3.
