3 stars This is my first review of an album by this German band and since I'm an owner of all of their studio albums there are quite a few others to come. I'm not sure if all those reviews will be very interesting because there's not so much to say about this bands albums. This doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing because in this case for instance it's a matter of being very consistent with a very recognizable own sound that is mainly caused by the vocals of Oliver Philips. This man has a unique voice, I think it sounds really distinguished especially in the more quiet songs so anyone who are into vocals like that can certainly give this band a try. Another feature of this music is that it's plain neo prog although this bands music has also heavy prog elements and since they hardly make epics one could even question the fact if this is true prog. I believe it is but it could also be seen as prog related in a way.

Enough about Everon in general, now about this debut album. It's an album without really moderate or weak tracks so that's a plus. On the other hand there are no real highlights either. It makes this album a very nice listen for almost an hour and if that's what one is looking for I think it could be given a try. As I said this band is hard to compare with another band but if I have to relate it to a band with the same style I would say Enchant and then I mean the fact they produce shorter songs, sometimes ballad like but mostly a lot louder. If you compare them in detail there will be many differences (vocals !) so it's just in general.

Leaves us the question of the rating. I don't think this is their best effort after I heard all of their releases so far so I think 4 stars is a little overdone here. This album easily deserves three stars and in fact some more (3,3).
