5 stars Although subsequent IQ albums would prove to be quite a match, none (IMHO) equal this masterpiece. Every single track on it has something magical about it and the album contains absolutely no dead moments whatsoever: it is pure genius from beginning to end. It's as if the band members had taken the best of everything they had ever written and compressed it all into a 50-minute CD. The melodies, the arrangements, the many twists and turns, everything here fits in neatly to produce an hallucinating effect and showcases an incredible array of musical colours that leave the listener speechless. These guys can turn your senses about so easily it's almost painful. Granted, Peter Nicholl's voice may not be as dynamic or powerful as that of a ROB SOWDEN (ARENA) or a STU NICHOLSON (GALAHAD), but I can't imagine anyone else doing such a fine job as he has done here. This music is genial, exhilirating, breathtaking.

"Ever": the kind of album that makes you want to shout out loud 'Thank God for Prog!!!'

Hibou | 5/5 |
