I only discovered Arena during 2004 and based on the quality of their last three albums I quickly became totally hooked. I was looking forward to "Pepper's Ghost" with mixed feelings, hoping to hear some more quality prog-rock but worried that they could not improve on Immortal? and Contagion. I need not have worried on that score, this album blew me away from the very first listen and I am sure it will become a firm favourite. I will not go through the individual tracks, suffice to say that the whole album is full of amazing musicianship from all members and the vocals of Rob Sowden just get better and better. The album has an expansive and slightly heavier feel than the previous albums, but personally I feel it is better for it and shows how the band is still developing it's style. Good to see that a band now in it's tenth year still has something new to offer. If you like progressive rock and you've not heard Arena before, give this album a listen - you will be hooked too !
