4 stars Third album of Galleon named King of Aragon. Again this swedish neo prog band did a great job, delivering a great neo prog album. To me this band is among the best from neo prog zone, quite underrated by many, with excellent musicianship ant clever arrangements. While this third album is not so outstanting than the previous one Heritage and visons, is a worthy album all the way. Tight compositions, clever ideas, every musicians shines on every instrument. This is kinda neo prog i like to lesten every time i need this kinda of music. Up tempo beats, great riffs, intelligent solos, and above all the key passages are very fine and well executed, Ulf Pettersson from keys is excellent. In the end but not least the voice is very pleasent, typical for this kind of music but with own potential and brilliancy, again great. All track are very well done and played with a plus on From Square to Circle - the longest piece and the most developed one as manner of composing, sounds very melodic but in the same time very accesible to every one. Fall of Spring and the opening track Crime Wave, the rest are above average neo prog. So, all in all, a great album that worth 4 stars, but, there is a but, to me is less enjoyble than the predecesor, more like 3.5 rounded to 4.
