The Evening Descends... and worlds collide. First you hear the prodigious musical skill: the deft guitar work, the clever pop sensibility, the wild arrangements. But then on other end of the spectrum there is the innocent and youthful charm of a trio of lost boys who seem to have no business making music with such maturity and sophistication. Taken together, you have Evangelicals, a wholly ... Read more in Amazon's Evangelicals Store

Editorial Reviews

Dabbling in glam, slipping in a little funk and soul, drinking the psychedelic Kool-aid, blasting the synths, cranking up the guitars, and wrapping it all up with a dose of pop smarts, The Evening Descends is the first great album of 2008. EVANGELICALS' 'The Evening Descends' just might be Oklahoma's answer to Prince's 'Around the World in a Day', but from the perspective of someone crashing at Pee-Wee's Playhouse, who happens to have a chainsaw slowly gnawing through his leg. 'The Evening Descends' is crazy, self-assured and above all, a totally wild ride. 'The Evening Descends' is full of the bands prodigious musical skill: the deft guitar work, the clever pop sensibility and the wild arrangements.

5.0 out of 5 stars the evening descends, evangelicals ascend!!!!! January 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
i never really felt the need to review any cd but this album is epic. i was hoping that it would be as amazing as their debut "so gone" but it might even be better. i am a huge fan of anything psychedelic and this album is dripping with psychedeliciousness. best album of 2008? easily! i know its blasphamy to say that this album is better than in rainbows, but i stand by it. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magical Journey... June 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Simply brilliant... Tracks to cherish are "How Do You Sleep?", "Skeleton Man", "Party Crashin'", "Midnight Vignette" and "Paperback Suicide". Impossible to compare their sound to anything, but vocally, those who enjoy Clap Your Hands will feel right at home.

It is sooooo rarely that I stumble across a NEW Band that blows me clean away with a first listen.

The Evangelicals have their Catchy, spacey, experimental Psychedelic trip; down pat!!

I am a huge fan of 60's and 70's Psyche and on occasions I step out of that realm to check out Modern Psyche bands. There is so much s**t out there. Bands copying the Beatles with no originality, or wanting to sound like Hawkwind, you name it....I go right to the source and skip the pretenders.

I can however recommend the first SNOWGLOBE album, ALL NIGHT RADIO, SOFT CANYON and some of the E6 COLLECTIVE. There are others, but onwards...

These guys are something else. Almost impossible to pigeonhole - THANK GOD! But laced with the kind of potent Acid that flicks my switch the way I like it flicked. Heavy, Harmonious, Epic, Grandiose, swirling, phased, flanged pop madness...

It's sooo hard to put into words. Listen to some tid bits and see if that doesn't grab you.

I'm listening to this Album as I write. i was going to suggest Touchstones. But I honestly can't without creating a distraction from the complete Genius that is their unique vibe. Damn!

One of my top 25 favorite albums ever. Almost 6 years old and it's still one of my go-to's. THEY ARE WAY OVERDUE FOR A NEW RECORD!!!

This is a messy messy album. It's musical butter lathered over greasy hooks, extra-shot distortion, complete with milky voices pouring over all the sides, and it is absolutely delicious. It ignores convention, it bends every rule, and it gets awful close to destroying your speakers. These guys can write impossible melodies, create elaborate flow, bring it close to insanity, incorporate instruments banned from all serious alternative or indie music, and keep it from crashing. Just make sure to memorize how these songs sound before seeing them try to pull it off live.
