3 stars This now ten years old record "From Land to Ocean" by Galleon which is their seventh record of nine feautures Göran Fors (lead vocals, bass, taurus, guitars & keyboards), Ulf Pettersson(keyboards), Sven Larsson(guitars) and Dan Fors(drums & percussion). The covers shows two mystical ships flying over the sea and some mountains. This is a hugo album in term of long play time and it contains a monster of 52 minutes.

The first tune: "Three Colours" has a perky melody that is nice and the sound is heavy and the music is very symphonic. I like this song. Next song is also meritorious: "Fall of fame" with different passages and a jazzy feeling at three minutes. "The Porch" is quite boringand "Liopleurodon" is sweat but not som much more. "Land"is the best song. The band here gets helt from Kristina Olsson with beautiful flute. This song is symphonic has a rich lyrical theme with deep. The two last songs on the first disc "Solitide" and "The Price" also shows great musicality. Finaly we have "The Ocean", a very long song indeed. I have just listend once and perhaps this craves many listenings. No, not perhaps, i understand it does. It contains here and there strong progressive rock with lyrics and instrumentation on a high level. Though my overall opinion about this music is good and talanted symphonic rock which I can enjoy listen to, but it's not very interesting. They managed to do what a band should do to make long lasting progressive rock, but I can't really find their own soul in all this. I can't really hear what's Galleon's music in it. Perhaps I'll change my opinion, then I'll be glad of course but this doesn't feel progressive and thinking new.

As a Swedish band they should have sung in Swedish, perhaps this could have been funnier then but now it's just good. Well I am allways impressed on long pieces, but this time perhaps I wasn't the right listener. Three stars!
