4 stars Third album of Outer Limits from 1987. This is maybe the most acomplished OL album from the'80's. Musically speaking is not far from the previouses two albums, but with a much tighter compositions and strong ideas. The album has that dark atmospeher like on the first 2 releases combined with strong violin parts, the listner is taken to another realm of fantasy - Marionette's Lament, second piece is much uptempo wth nice rythm, violin did a great job here. Now, Platonic Syndrome is my fav piese along with the the title track - 20 minutes of excellent symphonic prog arrangements with strong violin interlude not far from King Crimson (early years), but with a personal aproach, great. Finaly i think this album is very good, but not a masterpiece, equal with predecesors. Well The scene of pale blue desearve without question 4 stars, among the best prog albums from Japan. This album stands as one of the most intristing example of the '80's underrated prog music, and for sure needs much more atention.Recommended
