Format: Audio CD
IQ are supposed to be "neo progressive". Which means that they do "simpler" prog rock. Musically and lirically, "Ever" couldn't be considered "simple". All the formal (melodic, harmonic, rhytmic) development and complexities from the genre are present here, and not just for the sake of being clever or hard-to-listen. There's real emotion in every track. Some moments are real classics. I just couldn't think of a better way of opening an album than the opening in "The Darkest Hour". And then you get gems like "Leap of Faith", with the Cinema Show-like structure (beautiful song, then a brilliant guitar-keyboard interplay section, with each instrument replaying and adding to every melodic line that the other has just exposed, without really being a counterpoint, it's rather a dialogue than a canon or chorus), and "Further Away": IMO the best composition IQ has ever crafted. Many people regard "The last human gateway" (the obligatory twenty minutes suite for every prog band) as the best, but "Further Away" is dense in good ideas, concise (yes, you can be concise in a 14 minutes piece of music, if you have a lot to say and play), emotionally intense, never a cliche. Enough said. If you are into prog, and do not have this one, GET IT. If you dismiss neo prog as a [sick] or sold-out form of prog, do yourself a favor and GET IT. Or, simply, if you like music that takes some risks, and if you want to LISTEN to music, and discover something new with every listen, instead of just putting the CD in and let it play in the background... GET IT.

After one album with record company Giant Polygram IQ were dropped and went on hiatus for a few years. Eventually the band got back together with original vocalist Peter Nichols and added bass player John Jowitt for this release. "Ever" is one of the band's best. They sound like a band with something to prove and everything about this album is classic IQ. The songs are all great, "The Darkest Hour", "Fading Senses", "Out Of Nowhere", "Further Away", "Leap Of Faith", and "Came Down" rank up with the best of IQ. The band has never sounded better, and Peter Nichols continues is vocal improvement. There is not much negative I can say about this one. If you like IQ or are into good neo prog this album is essential.

The comeback album of all time. IQ are reunited with their original vocalist, Peter Nicholls, to produce a masterpiece far beyond all expectations. Don't be misled by the petty categorising and go beyond the genre stereotyped asumptions. This album is far more than a progressive / neoprogressive / art-rock / whatever album and stuns with just superb music. Check this one out, a must for all music fans.

Many IQ fans consider this the pre-eminent album from this band. I might differ there but I'd call this a likable recording. Peter Nicholls' voice has matured from annoying to somewhere between tolerable, amusing and an acquired taste. The instrumentalists have matured in their style and while they owe much to Genesis for their sound, they could have done much worse than borrowing from that seminal band.

WHAT A GREAT CD ! A WELCOME RETURN OF NICHOLLS ON VOCALS. GREAT MELODIES THAT ARE HAUNTING AND SPIRITUAL. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT ORFORD'S KEYBOARD WORK- AWESOME. EARLY TO MID PERIOD GENESIS FANS WILL LOVE THIS GROUP. MIKE HOLMES HAS GOT THE HACKETT-INFLUENCED GUITAR DOWN. A MUST LISTEN.

Man I dig this band! What an awesome find. This is one of those recordings which is so deep that every time you give it a listen you hear different rifts. You can't go wrong with "Ever" , "Subterreana" , "Frequency" or "Seventh House". Just when I'm convinced I have a favorite, that changes with another spin of a different disk. This band creates very moving emotions depending on your mood. As perfect as it gets for me. Martin Orford's keyboard work is pure genuis. Strong percussion with guitar work which fits perfectly with the haunting vocals of Peter Nichols complete this unbelievable chemistry. This is such a treasure. Frequency came out in 2009. I've been hoping for another release but nothing so far. If you want sharp, smart, harmonious progressive rock, here it is. It doesn't get any better that this.

If you like Pendragon, you'll also like IQ. 'Darkest Hour' and 'Fading Senses' are incredible. Great progressive music. I like the lead singer on this album better than their current one. -Susan

You know, maybe this is one of those albums you really had to hear in the context of their release cycle to really "get" the "epic" nature of this this album. I know there are some albums I've listened to over the past 30 years that just hit me at the right place/time that ended up being "masterpieces" for me because of when/how I heard it.

After reading all the reviews about this album being their defining work, I was more than ready to jump on board and enjoy some new IQ (for me). I own Dark Matter, Subterranea, The Seventh House and Frequency and out of those albums, only Dark Matter really stood out as a true, complete masterpiece with each song being a great piece of prog.

The rest of those albums all had some great songs and some wonderful lyrics and themes, but there were definitely movements in each album that sort of meandered and lost me from time to time. I was really hoping for another Dark Matter with Ever and there are a few movements on the album that are excellent. Unfortunately, this album ends up being another "Subterranea" - a good album with some great songs and passages that just sort of meander about until the song finds a way of recapturing my attention.

It's definitely a good prog album, and if you like IQ, this is a nice addition, but I wouldn't recommend this above Dark Matter.
