Pallas were one of a handful of bands to emerge from the English neo-progressive rock scene in the early 80's. Although never reaching the level of success that bands like Marillion gained, Pallas did manage to carve out a loyal fan base that remains to this day. Many fans consider "The Sentinel" to be the band's best album and the "Atlantis Suite" section of this album to be their crowning achievement. Indeed for a debut album this was quite impressive at the time. Listening to it again today after all these years, the material does sound very 80's - ish which definitely dates the album a bit. The first few songs are short rockers with the whole second half of the album dealing with the Atlantis theme. Actually I am not really sure where the "concept" part of the album begins and ends since all of the songs don't really seem to fit, but the overall end of the world scenario is present throughout. Highlights include "Eastwest", "March On Atlantis", "Heart Attack" and "Atlantis". A few of the shorter tracks sound as if they were meant to be 80's radio singles and don't fit the rest of the album all that well, but this is a minor criticism. If you like early 80's neo progressive rock this one is essential. If you don't like it this one won't do anything to change your mind.

"the Sentinal" isn't a masterpiece,but at least Pallas were trying to be a progressive rock band during the "dark ages" of this genre.The first cut is a killer and the cover art is very cool...

i read some reviews about this band and decided to check them out. sadly i found them pretty average prog music. are they good? yes. are they competent? sure. do they offer anything different, orginal or above average? no. sad to say, the music industry is flooded with prog bands and their sweeping symphonic sounds. but the industry is saturated with average artists. this is exactly what happened to the "new age" music category. nothing but copy cats of copy cats. don't get me wrong, they guys are alright. if you don't have a lot of prog music or are new to the scene, this would be as good as any place to start. but if you're familiar with the scene and have a lot of discs already, Pallas will have nothing new to offer. sorry.
