5.0 out of 5 stars 'Neo-Prog' Of The Highest Order, Pallas Rocks! February 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Back in the early 80's there emerged in Britain a slew of melodic 'progressive rock' bands with a dramatic flair, a New Wave of progressive rock which included the likes of Marillion, IQ, Twelvfth Night and Pendragon. Scotland's Pallas were also amongst these, though this is the first Pallas album I've heard and now I must say- I have been missing out. I now count them as interesting as the others, and in no way are they a lesser 'neo-prog' band(though the limiting label of 'neo-prog' is widely hated by these type of bands). They have their own sound too.
Pallas have a dark, harder edge in places(similar perhaps to Arena) and the music is captivating. For anyone into that sound- lush synthesizers, melodic recurring themes, extended compositions and passionate vocal delivery- Pallas are for you, and this disc is a great place to start. Material basically covers all their history, but with the heftiest emphasis on their more recent 'Cross & The Crucible' and their classic second album 'The Sentinel'. Highlights for me were the classic 'Crown Of Thorns', the Atlantis suite, and the last two 'Cross...' tracks, 'Midas Touch' and 'Celebration!' The band is in fine form and Alan Reed trading vocal lines with bassist Graeme Murray on 'Crown Of Thorns' sounds great. Some of the tracks sound better here in a live context than the studio versions. One standout moment for Pallas fans is when the band is joined by their original lead singer, coaxed out of retirement, who sings the last two tracks. If only Fish & Marillion would do that.
Overall this two-cd set is a great intro to the music of Pallas. There is also a DVD of the show as well. If you like that IQ/Arena/Twelvth Night/Jadis type sound, this is a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert May 11, 2010
By D. Boss
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Really good soundtrack of the DVD. I guess you could just listen to the DVD if you wanted to, but not the same as cranking the CD in the car. The ending with the original lead singer is a treat. Get the DVD first though...

5.0 out of 5 stars FATHERS OF NEO PROG December 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
THIS IS A GREAT LIVE COMPILATION AND WOULD SERVE AS A GREAT INTRO TO THE BAND. IF YOU LIKE GENESIS, EARLY MARILLION AND THE LIKE, YOU WILL ENJOY THIS. ALSO, PURCHASE THE DVD VERSION OF THIS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Neo Prog? OK ! April 28, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I will admit that this band gets closer than other bands of this supposed genre: NEOPROG . This band has Floyd influences and a touch of Genesis and IQ. I was a bit skeptical at first but they are very good musicians and good writers. This particular release unleashes the best of their history and it's pretty faithful to it. Takes a few listens but al in all very good!
