5 stars Stunning album, insanely gifted singer, an outstanding band and wonderful compositions. Um... that just about covers it really! Ok. I'll say a bit more then. Evership are listed here as Neo-Prog (whatever that means!). I heard just a few seconds of "Evermore" on a radio show and thought Queen? but even better than Queen? The voice, the arrangement and that piano, not to mention the guitars! I had to get this album. I now have the CD. Would it all sound like Queen? Not even slightly! The first track sounded a bit like Yanni and then like a movie score, then bit like "Jesus Christ Superstar", then.... oh I don't blimmin' know! Track 4, "Ultima Thule" sounded to me like 10cc at their very best but slowly became Dream Theater, also at their very best. Now I will stop all the "who do they sound like" cobblers. The point is the quality of this band is of the same caliber of all the aforementioned bands. From what I have read, this album was a long time in coming. That may be one of the reasons it is so amazing. They made the best album that could be made before they released it. Many bands touch on the standards and power of this album but almost none of them make me think "wow", every few minutes and sustain such musicality. I don't review, can't review. I will never review anything that doesn't amaze me. This music did, at first hearing and now I am hooked. Tiger Moth Tales had this effect on me last year. Now Evership have done it. The last time any band did that for me was probably Pain of Salvation back in the day. Now I must go and sell my guitar and take up pottery. Bugger!
