4 stars GALLEON's fourth studio album is both melodic and keyboard driven and very accessible. I love the picture of these Swede's in the liner notes, they could not possibly have bigger smiles on their faces. It's great !

The record starts off with "King Of Aragon" with a keyboard intro, and a good beat, a good way to start. The vocals are very good and there is a synth melody and some keyboard, drum interplay. "Crime Wave" features a piano melody throughout and some great keyboard runs.

"From Square To Circle" is an upbeat tune with lots of keys. "Illusive Exhibition" is a happy, upbeat song, with tempo shifts contrasted. I really like the pastoral passages. "Fall Of Spring" is a favourite of mine, with tempo changes and some heavy passages. "Long Lonely Shadows" is a dark and heavy tune, with what sounds like church organ and some GENESIS sounding keyboard sections.

This is fantastic NEO prog that I highly recommend. Well done !
