When you hear that three young home-schooled brothers from Fielding have brought out an album, let's be honest, you've probably already made up your mind. But Evermore is a surprising band to say the least. It's important to realise just how well they've done, considering their small-town background and young age. They blew the judges away at the Rockquest in 2000, and within two years had their first single on Australia's Triple J radio. Two fine EPs and a mass of touring later, Evermore bring us their first album. 'Dreams' is a dark, moody little affair, and there are pieces which make it aopparent their folks had them listening to a lot of Pink Floyd. A gentle instrumental recreates the dawn of a new day, then alarm bells, and suddenly you're hit with what has to be their best track, It's Too Late. This is just one of a collection of well-crafted songs, and while I felt the album became a little weighty in the melancholia department, this is a powerful debut. A very nicely produced album, from a surprisingly skilful band. Forget what you may have already decided about Evermore; this is an album worth owning.
