5 stars I cannot resist reviewing this 25th anniversary edition of the stunning IQ's Ever!

Because this remix is simply fantastic. The guitars are much more present this time reveling details which were in hiding in the original mix and everything sounds just clean, clear and beautiful. It is still a record made in the 90's, for sure, but it sounds just perfect yet.

Ever was always one of the best neo-prog albums of the 90's, along with others like Marillion's Brave and Clepsydra's Fears, but with this remix this album has maybe reached the top of the podium.

Best Tracks: it is not a weak moment to be found in Ever, really. However, Came Down is just my favorite IQ song!

Conclusion: this edition of Ever is the definitive one. The sound is perfect, crystal clear and this remix has achieved that the music sounds not so old fashioned these days.

That's was my main complaint with the original Ever, it sounded a bit old despite being a magnificent record. So with this remix I can finally give this great album five solid stars!!!

My rating: *****
