Angleterre  -  néo progressif  -  ****


Formé en 1978, par le guitariste  
Nick Barrett , Pendragon  est l'un des fers
de lance du renouveau du rock progressif anglais. Du néo-progressif dont
le style est à mi-chemin entre  
Camel ,  Pink Floyd , Genesis , Arena ,
le groupe perpétue la tradition d'un progressif symphonique, mélodique, lyrique,
subtil mélange de chanson soignées, plaisantes, et de mélodies travaillées,
aux somptueux arrangements, il se distingue par une rythmique
et des claviers qui alternent mélodies ciselées et envolées lyriques.
Une référence du courant néo-progressif,
Indispensable  !!!!
