Deluxe Double 180gm Vinyl re-issue of a classic slice of 90’s melodic neo-prog from one of the UK’s finest indie bands… Ever!

Originally Issued on CD in 1993, ‘Ever’ was the 6th studio album by neo-progressive rock band IQ, and in 2014 it gets its first release on vinyl!

As with previous GEP vinyl reissues you get a high quality package, with the two records pressed on Premium Heavy Duty 180g Vinyl packaged in a Gatefold Sleeve, with Black Inner Sleeves and with a newly designed cover to boot!

The line-up for ‘Ever’ was: Peter Nicholls (lead & backing vocals), Martin Orford (keyboards / flute / backing vocals), Mike Holmes (guitars), John Jowitt (bass / backing vocals) and Paul Cook (drums).

If bands like the FLOWER KINGS are the sound of 70's GENESIS, if you really think about it, the arrangements here are more akin to ‘Lamb Lies Down’-era GENESIS, only with much more of the Gabriel-esque vocals.
The compositions themselves mostly follow a fairly powerful and dynamic trail, with a few quieter bits along the way. The album is built on very solid rhythmic foundations and with a predominantly BIG sound.
‘Ever’ is the sound of mid-late 70's Prog re-inventing itself!

This is a must have addition to any IQ fan's collection… assuming you have a turntable that is … and it seems that a lot of music fans are going back to them … and to think these were labelled as dead pieces of kit just a few years back!

‘Ever’ is also available as a Standard CD – Stock # 227221
