4 stars This second Everon's release is the best of their first three in my opinion...

Here we can find the most symphonic face of this fantastic group with beautiful orchestra arrangement in songs like Under Skies... and Black River. But songs like ...Of Blue, Cavemen and In All That Time absolutely rocks!!! After the most recent "Flesh", "Flood" is the most Everon's symphonic work ro date.

Remarkable points: the fantastic production by Eroc, the absolutely beautiful artwork by Gregory Bridges and the good variety of the album... The only thing I really miss in this album is the lack of Oliver's guitar solos. There are only a pair of them through the album... And It's a pity, because is one of the things I like most from Everon.

Best tracks: Under Skies... Of Blue (this is a very good introduction to the album's style... Clearly more orchestral than in "Paradoxes"), In All that Time (melancholic, powerful and with great lyrics), Lame Excuses (commercial, but really catchy) and Cavemen (good keyboards for a song with some neo-prog influences)

Conclusion: this album is ovbiously more personal than "Paradoxes", and it was a good progression for the band... Although the lack of guitar solos, the quality of the songs is higher than the previous release, and so are the keyboards arrangements. The lyrics are also more interesting, but nothing in comparision with their most recent efforts... So although "Flood" lacks the mature and deep sound of the band achieved with "Fantasma" and later albums, I think this album deserves 4 solid stars!

My rating: ****
