Staff review by
Progressive rock band Arena has existed now for a decade and has been one of the finest prog outfits during these years, bringing quality with each album. And to celebrate the tenth anniversary the band has released their sixth studio album titled "Pepper's Ghost". Clive Nolan has once said that he would very much like to see the time when Arena will be identifiable by its own name and sound, without the need to add 'progressive rock' tag. Just like Marillion or Pendragon are. Arena has had a rough time through the decade, living the line-up changes over and over again. But the sound Clive strives for has been taking form all the time. This album has Arena written all over it, at the same time being fresh.
