4 stars While "Crisis? What Crisis?" was a good album, it was a sharp turn away from the proggy pop that made "Crime Of The Century" such a joy. There were good songs, but not much to feed the prog fans in their audience.

Here, Hodgson and Davies brought that back into their music. The songwriting is better, and as many have mentioned, bassist Dougie Thompson shines on the album, adding punch to each track.

The poppy songs are pretty good. Give A Little Bit is not bad, From Now On is better. But the title track, Even In The Quietest Moments stands as my favorite of their hits. This track builds from a quiet pastoral beginning, into an eerie and beautiful melody, with nome nice multi-layered vocals.

Foold's Overture stands out as well, an epic piece (that Davies seems to evoke on the later Brother Where You Bound), that brings us back to the proggies moments of "Crime Of The Century".

Evolver | 4/5 |
