4 stars Realm of shadows from 2009, their newest work to date is another worthy Knight Area album. It goes very well with the previous one, same aproach, same great pieces, same fat soud, all is here to make another excellent addition is everyone's collection. I don't think is their best album from all 3, I realy am on the second album to be their most mature and mostt chalenging one, but this one is close. Knight Area grow a lot from the first album who was a good one but less captivating then these two, and they manage to bring in neo prog world another great relase full of catchy pieces and great arrangements. While the music is very ok , they bring nothing new in this genre , but they play so good and has a very solid sound that easy can forget about the missing pieces of this lated album. All tracks are good, nothing realy unintristing, as I said on previous review maybe the voice is usual but ok , he did a good job and is just great for this kind of music. Best pieces are to me the instrumental Momentum and a couple two more, the rest are again good. So, this album with strong musicianship, manage to climb very high in neo prog scene, one of the front bands of this genre I ight say. Realm of shadows desearve again 4 stars, maybe 3.5 rounded up to 4, because of the excellent sound and profesionalism of this band.
