5 stars A great cd. Venus is the third album from this Dutch progressive rock band. The band's inspirations are coming basically from Rush,Pink Floyd, IQ but they haven't stolen anything. They play with their own style and I can assure you that it is a good one. Beautiful melodies, great job on the guitars, and a very good rhythm section combine together to give us an interesting result. The artwork on the cover is really beautiful and the booklet is unfolding to form a very nice poster. It looks like all Progressive fans have found another good CD, for their library.The title track "Venus" opens the album. This is a short instrumental with soaring guitars and full keyboards. It drips class and quality and sets the stage wonderfully for the rest of the album. "Venus" flows straight into "Missing The Last Train." This shows the rocky foundations of Everon. Strong riffs, bass and drums over-laid with keyboard decoration. In saying that, this is not dull, unimaginative metal riffing, this has changes in tempo and key to match the best proggers. Oliver's vocals are mildly accented with his English almost too true to be native. "Real Me" is more mellow; still a full sound though with Oliver's ivory-tickling being particularly effective. My picks for the best songs are are Meteor, What Do We Know, Venus, Missing The Last Train, and Real Me. Good tunes.
