5 stars What an album!!! Rarely does one see such creativity in one masterpiece album, so full of different moods, ideas, inspiration! All songs are quite impressive by themselves, specially 'The ocean', 'Three colours', and 'The price', my favourites.

Personally, I have always found that Galleon hadn't such a vein for creating nice epics, in the sense that it seems like they cannot vary the mood enoughly so that it won't become boring. But I was wrong. Quite wrong. In 'From land to ocean', as well as other albums, I had to listen to it several times before I realised how good it was, and how the material is rich and well-produced. Even FORS's vocals are not so easily comprehended, but after a while, I was able to identify quite a unique style.

'From land to ocean' is, above all, a dawn of inspiration, lyrically speaking. 'The ocean' is worth mentioning any time Neo-prog is discussed. In 52 minutes, GALLEON tells the story of the planet Earth, from creation to the greed of men. It is really amazing, but it never missed to steal an hour of focus from me, because it is so penetrating.

If you listen to it once, and don't like it, try it again. You'll eventually be absorbed into the album, and realise why they spent two years to compose but the last track.
