3 stars Engines of creation from 2007 is another well played and well produce album by this excellent neo prog band from Sweden. I realy enjoy this band and I think is one of the top neo bands from today and in last 15 years, and yet very underrated in prog circles. They play a wel crafted music , with long instrumental passages who alternates from mellow side to more uptempo, delivering some very fine moments as well on every album. Aswell I like very much the voice of Goran Fors with melancholical undertone, he fits like a glove in this kind of music. This album is their last release to date entitled Engines of creation from 2007. Well, something is diffrent here, bith musicaly and at the vocal parts. The music on this album is more towards heavy prog, the neo prog arrangements are almost gone leaving space to a more heavier aproach, sometimes I have the impression I'm listning to Rush. The vocal arrangements are not bad but this time Goran Fros don't shine anymore like on previous releases, of course the voice is not bad but does'nt impress me much, he sounds like he is tired to sing anymore. The pieces are well constructed but I prefer the sound and manner of composing and interpretention of the previous albums, who were neo prog at the highest calibre, now they sound diffrent more heavier and I don't really like that in Galleon's soind. I want to be like they were before on Heritage and vision, King Aragon and the rest, that was the peak and the pest period of the band the '90's. On previous review I said that I'm looking to judge this last Galleon offer 'till now to see if this album beats Heritage and vision (the best Galleon almu to me), well no, he is far from that album from 1994 both musicaly and lyricaly and I think is the least enjoyble Galleon album to me. 2.5 rounded to 3, still a good album , but nothing special either.
