The album of the German cyber-goths begins with The Heart, in which I could hear the sound of a beating heart, with a definite more-than-average speed (I guess it’s the heart of the person from the front page of the official EVEREVE’s web-site;)). Yep, the whole CD is lively and energetic, full of effects, electronic and keyboard insets, which is a must in this genre.
From the point of creative development, the band made another step, this time toward pop-music. I even felt RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS on a couple of tracks. There are no obscure tints left in the music, only weak sadness in some places. Nevertheless, the tramp of the album is its hit-motives.
To my mind, the best song on the album is the Silver God. Also on the bonus CD I found remixes and remakes of their best compositions, and again the most successful Silver God along with an English version of Abraza La Luz (Embrace The Light), primordially produced in Spanish.
Well, commercial music is oriented on gothic club culture. Where is the EVEREVE which made you submerge into deep thought, melancholy, which made you sit in silence and listen to the autumn rain outside your window, when your soul is overwhelmed with pain and uneasiness? Where’s the atmosphere of depression and grief, the feeling of inevitability of human suffering?
It all vaporized to be substituted by music, which is easy to perceive, which makes you want to dance. Those who like EVEREVE’s new style, will sure like this album, but the fans of the old forgotten EVEREVE will spit at once and sweep dust from Seasons or Stormbirds (which happened to me too=)).
