4 stars Shane Atkinson is the man behind this album that is the work of 8 years. He composes, writes and plays many instruments, but he has received some help from others musicians. The beginning of the cd is very strong with some intense vocal harmonies and some music that is on the melodic side of Progressive Rock with sometimes a heavy edge reminiscent of old Americain Prog with some spark of the British's sound of the Neo Prog bands. All this music is embellished with some lush orchestrations and choirs. The multi-part compositions go from the atmospheric to the dramatic with dazzling vintage organ and mellotron. The influences from the past are there and cover a lot of ground.The vocals and the music in the song "Evermore" are in the pure Queen style. The epic "Flying Machine is not without reference to the band Mystery with a mix of classic rock and Progressive Rock. The song goes back and forth between acoustic parts and electric ones. There is a nice flow throughout the different parts of this cd. The songs contain many hooks, and also some moving progressive rock moments that keep you engage. It's just the right balance between the simplicity of rock music and a more complex Progressive Rock. I had the same uplifting feeling listening to this cd of the one I had when Sean Filkins (ex-Big Big Train) released his solo cd.The man has a lot more material for others albums. I just hope that we don't have to wait another 8 years to hear it. So let's take the journey to the world of Evership, you will love the ride!
