3 stars This is the first Everon album, and like how many nascent bands they were still trying to get out their personal style...

But here we can find some of the facts that make Everon a very special band for me... The powerful Moschus's drums sound, the great keyboards and guitar played by Oliver Phillips, along with his magnificent voice (althouhg his deep german accent...), and the storng bass lines. Maybe the thing I like most from Everon are the Oliver's guitar solos, and in songs like Face The World, Circles and Shodowboxing we can here these fantastic solos... I really love that!!!!

It's true that this album sounds a lot in the 80's style of bands like Saga, Asia and Rush, nevertheless it's still a different and personal work, in a heavier way that will be explored more deeply in future Everon's production. But here we can already hear the incipient genious of one of the best man in the progressive world in my opinion... Oliver Phillips: guitarist, keyboardist, singer, composer and producer.

Best tracks: Face the World (great keyboard intro, powerful drumming and catchy chorus...), Circles (marvellous guitar solo) and Paradoxes (the guitar intro is very proper from the band, like the intrincated instrumental sections...)

Conclusion: very recommended for bombastic 80's prog rock lovers, but very recommended too for progressive hard rock/metal lovers and people who wants to enjoy one of the most amazing and beautiful guitar playing I've ever heard!!!!

My rating: ***1/2
