Album number 6 and another high quality release from this excellent band. First thing noticeable about this CD is the excellent packaging,featuring an old comic book style Digibook - very nice. 'Bedlam Fayre' blasts out of the speakers with a certain gusto - very very good track this one, and probably my fave on the whole disc. 'Opera Fanatica' is the epic of the album, clocking in at a mighty 13 minutes. Along with 'The Visitor' & 'Contagion' Arena's strongest release.

Si hay algo bueno que ha dejado de legado Inglaterra es su buen rock progresivo. Por solo mencionar a Asia, King Crimson hasta Pink Floyd, Marillion y Yes, todas son inglesas. Arena, (no confundirse con la banda sueca de AOR) que ya desde su nombre nos da una idea de para que lado van a correr sus melodías, nos trae su nuevo cd titulado “Pepper & Ghost” compuesto por 7 canciones de buenos coros, teclados y guitarras, y aprovechan el mismo para celebrar su décimo aniversario.

No tengo una referencia anterior a Arena a pesar de que es su sexto cd, no puedo comparar si mejoraron, igualaron o malgastaron una oportunidad, pero el disco esta bien logrado. Es algo difícil de decir que una banda de rock progresivo suene mal, justamente porque es un estilo bastante perfeccionista.

Arena no es el caso, justamente se nota una buena composición de canciones como “Bedlam fayre”, “The eyes of Lara Moon”, aunque “Purgatory road” es el que me quita el sombrero ante estos ingleses, sus bases son mas densas y no pecan de teclados muy al frente, la guitarra hace un buen papel. Bases mucho mas aceleradas finalizan el nuevo redondo con “Opera fanatica”el cual dura mas de 13 minutos(no podía faltar un tema de extensa duración) info: http://verglas.com/arenaworld LHGORDO@YAHOO.COM
