3 stars 3.5 stars.This one is darker than their debut but other than that if you have heard the first one you know what to expect with this one.

The title track "Evening Games" with so many tempo shifts is the almost 17 minute epic on the album. I love the melody 3 minutes in. And there is a very good guitar solo followed by a keyboard solo. About 8 minutes in it's pure bliss with the fantastic chorus. What a way to open the record. "Never Never" features some aggressive vocals, and I like the long instrumental of synths and tasteful guitar.

"Rush" has some good ripping guitar in it after 4 minutes while the synths come in creating a tranquil mood to the end of the song. "Love Is Around You" is a mellow tune with gentle vocals, drums and piano.There is a long tasteful guitar solo towards the end of the song. "Why" has some unique guitar playing and lots of time changes. "Beautiful World" opens with a nice piano melody, and the melody of the chorus creates a relaxed and good feeling. "Evening Overture" featutes a heavy beat with guitar and synth solos. "Take It As It Is" is a nice song with beautiful vocals and piano and synths.

This is a really good record that isn't quite essential but well worth checking out.
