|Some would say (and I wouldn't argue) that this is Pendragon's finest hour. Classic British Neo Prog rock is what is on offer here,with all the trademark Pendragon sounds, from Nick Barrett's Dave Gilmour/ Andy Latimer inspired solois, to Clive Nolans lush keys and some simply magnificent songs. If you can, try to get the original 2 disc version that came out in '96, which featured 4 extra tracks, namely edits (again) of 'As Good As Gold' (as featured on the Mini CD) 'Masters Of Illusion' plus 'Schizo' and 'The King Of The Castle (The Shadow Part 2), both of which are must have tracks. Apart from the 2 edits on disc 2, 'The Masquerade Overture' is a near flawless gem in their catologue and is quite simply superb.
