Believe represents for me the best album yet of Pendragon. The group has attained a certain maturity and is mastering all the facets of his art.

I’ve enjoyed most of their previous studio albums, particularly Kotow, The Window of Life, The Mascarade Ouverture and Not of this World, but Believe possess a zest that placed it above all the others. This symphonic prog CD with its lyrics and sometimes out of this world atmosphere really nailed it down for me.

The eponymous intro, in the characteristic style of Pendragon, immediately create a mind blowing atmosphere. But for me, the two highlights of the album are “The Wisdom Of Solomon” and “Learning Curve”. On those pieces, the guitar is simply superb! This album has also a nostalgic, almost tragic overtone. This aspect is showing best in the final piece “The Edge of the World” which conveys a great sadness.

I’ve listened to this album many times in the last two years and I certainly will continue to listen to it in the future. All in all, it is a great work.
