Warthur
Just as much as on Battle Scars, and perhaps even more so, Beyond the Realms of Euphoria showcases just how much of an asset keyboardist Dean Baker is to Galahad. This isn't to say that the other band members (including the late Neil Pepper, who would pass away from cancer shortly after the sessions which yielded both albums) don't pull their weight - they're fully present and churning out fairly straight ahead neo-prog performances, with Roy Keyworth in particular serving up some electrifying guitar on this one - but it's Dean's command of different synthesiser and keyboard styles from modern approaches influenced by dance music (!) to more classically neo-prog modes which makes this diverse and intense release from the band worth a listen, even if it's a bit too unfocused to be a keeper.
