Review by BrufordFreak
COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars 1. "The Pilgrimage" (10:38) Yes! (imitators) Then Genesis (with Jean Pageau-like vocal)! Some of the nicest synth strings in the final section I've ever heard! (16.75/20): - i. "Desert of Facts" - ii. "The Temple of Truth" - iii. "The Quiet Room"

2. "The Voice of the Waves" (3:08) The Waiting Room? and then, what? (8/10)

3. (a) "Crownshine" / (b) "Allthetime" (10:50) too much cliché bombast. Sounds like Head East, Styx, Starcastle, Kansas, Uriah Heep, and Camel. (16/20)

4. "The Tower" (9:47) Just bad--vocals very pitchy and lyrically ridiculous. (15.5/20)

5. "The Voice of the Evening Wind" (4:23) bar far the best song on the album. Gorgeous! Especially the gift that is the gorgeous voice of Poem Atkinson. (9.5/10)

6. (a) "Yettocome" / (b) "Itmightbe" (16:42) I swear in Beau West I'm hearing a clone Jean Pageau! The music is competent but totally prog by-the-numbers. (24/30)

7. "Wait" (5:12) a very upbeat, bouncy, polished pop song in the vein of Sweden's Moon Safari. Nice. Maybe this is more of the direction Shane should take this band in. The Jean Pageau reminders continue but the musica accompanying Beau is nowhere as rich and mature as that of Jean's MYSTERY compatriot, guitarist extraordinaire Michel St-Père. (8.25/10)

Total Time 60:40

C/three stars; a nice addition of pretty Neo Prog-by-the-numbers for any prog lover.

3 stars To me this album sounds like a tribute to the heyday of 'progressive melodic rock bands', the socalled AOR, in the Seventies and Eighties. Like Kansas featuring vintage keyboards (Hammond, Minimoog and Mellotron) and acoustic guitars in the dynamic The Pilgrimage. Like Styx with the distinctive ... (read more)

5 stars American progressive rock band, EVERSHIP plunge us back into the pomp/prog-rock era of the 70s with their third album and a concept one at that - the first half of an allegoric journey in search of truth, full of symphonic rock anthems, instrumental flourishes, quality vocals and melodic passage ...

5 stars EVERSHIP is the group founded in 2013 in the USA, led by Shane ATKINSON composer and multi- instrumentalist who performed on CURIOUS FOOLS. He tries his hand at producing albums to continue to bring to life the exceptional sounds of the 70's in our time by restructuring them, giving them more int ... (read more)

4 stars Stunning symphonic ear candy. The Uncrowned King is the first Act of a two album quest for truth. The music evokes Kansas's Leftoverture/Point of No Return sails alongside Styx Castle Walls. Beau West's soaring lead vocals and mastermind/keyboardist Shane Atkinson are guilty as charged. ... (read more)
