4 stars This album is actually an extended version of the Cd single "At this Moment in Time". The original three-track record consisted of "Crime Wave", "Illusive Exhibition" and "King of Aragon". The latter is a quite old thing from the time when the band was called Aragon (they had competitors in Australia). When it was released in Japan the japs wanted, just like usual, to put additional tracks on it. "From Square to Circle" is a 12 minutes top song and a left-over from "The All European Hero"-album (what a left-over!). "Fall of Spring" is a newly written song for this very project. We find another oldie in "Long Lonely Shadows". This is composed by keybord player Ulf Pettersson and must be regarded as Galleons finest moment ever. It's on a par with anything in the genre. "Eternal Shadows" is a remake of the version from debut album "Lynx". Despite its fragmented character "King of Aragon" is a rich source of musical material and is definitely a must in your Swedish prog collection.
