5 stars And what can I say about this album? Just one of the best things Iīve heard in my whole life! And absolute and ignored masterpice, like the whole career of this great band!

Everon is a german band that makes a kind of symphonic hard rock with a lot of metal influences, but with some tracks very close to AOR feelings or melodic hard rock too... They are very variated, and every album is different too. But they have a very distinctive and personal style that make his music very original! I think the most important thing this band have is the amount of feelings, sensibility and passion they put in every song they made...

This album opens with a powerful introduction called Bridge-Theme, with a very catchy melody, the one that sounds if you get into the Everon webpage

Fantastically linked to Bridge-Theme comes Across The Land, an epic hard rocking song with marvellous lyrics! The guitar solo itīs amazing, like the outstanding sound of the drums. How can Christian Moos get this sound from his drums? I will never know, but itīs simply the best drumsīs sound Iīve ever heard!

Juliet itīs like a kind of tragic-romantic love theme, with an incredibly catchy choir and with an apoteosic ending section with growls making the sentence "...Saying I love You"! Just amazing song!

Travelling Shoes has a wonderful lyric about friendship. Itīs a short song wonderfully played with spanish guitars, and itīs just a kind of introduction for the next track called...

Driven start like another romantic sad song, but the choir breaks into a savage metal riffing. The second choir leads to a powerful bridge section with outstanding drumming and guitar playing. Fantastic.

If you Were Still Mine is one of my favourites tracks of the album. Itīs a great ballad with very heart touching lyrics, and a great piano melody... The firt time I heard this song it just make me cry...I feel very identified with the feeling this song give. I would do all of this for her too...

Ten Years Late follow the line of Across the Land. Prog hard rock with many changes and incredible guitar solo! Oliver Philip could be a true guitar hero If he would play another kind of music, Iīm sure...

Not This Time is a slow song with a lot of gotic moods! In the same way of Until The Day Breaks of the Everonīs album "Venus". Darker, more depressive, but as good as the rest!

Puppet Show is an instrumental very indicated for prog-metalheads, with an absolute INCREDIBLE guitar playing and drumming. This short song easily surpases in quality of sound and playing almost everything that Dream Theater have done in their whole career! Iīm not kidding...

Carousel is a song writen by the second Everonīs guitarist, Uli Hoever, itīs more rockier and guitar oriented than the rest, but itīs still a great song. The choir is very good, like the marvellous guitar solo and strong ending.

Harbour is another of my favourite tracks on the album. Is an AOR tune with fun romantic lyrics and a very catchy choir...With another powerful and bombastic central bridge in the same style of In You Were Still Mine. The way of Everon mix the melodic and romantic parts with powerful and heavy others itīs just amazing! Just hear this song...

Bridge closes this albums magistrally. This is another dark song with a very melodic opening, of guitar and piano. After that comes a dark and opressive section that leads to a short but incredibly well played and positive guitar solo...To ending with the same and catchy melody of the beginning of the album. The final sounds of the album are a beautiful piano chords that Oliver Phillips borrowed from Billy Joel! Read the album booklet for explanations...

Conclusion: one of the best albums Iīve heard in my life. All music lovers must have this jewel! Everon is undoubtly one of the most beautiful and valuable hidden treasures of the history of music...
