3 stars Pallas fifth studio album from 2005 named the dreams of men show the band in a new dimension. To me this album show a heavier side of the band with more edgy passages then on previous work The cross and the crucible. In places some pieces souds like a metalized neo prog, not bad at all but I'm more attached of the previous album sound more. Some great tunes here, the best is Too Close To The Sun a very worthy 11 min neo prog goodness, The wolf with some impressive bass lines, very energic and well performed and the first two tracks who show a mixture of progressive arrangements with more heavier sections. I really like this album, nothing is groundbreaking here like most of the reviewers saw , but is good towards great in places. The voice is ok, good most of the time, what is not to my liking is that this neo prog band trry to sound heavier then usual, if they succeded I can say so so, some arrangements are excellent some are ordinary like on Messiah a totaly forgetable tune. Pallas remain in second league neo prog bands even this one and previous album is quite good most of the time. They are not a prolific band in the 30 years career they offer only 6 albums to date. I don't considered that this is the best Pallas album, to me The cross and the crucible is better.3-3.5 stars for this one.
