3 out of 5
I have followed this band from their first album "Dreams" (2004) and the following 3 albums where the 2009 album "Truth of the world" was a masterpiece. The Hume brothers of Evermore became more artsy for each release and I loved it, we still get quality pop from this trio on their new album "Follow the sun" but this time they sound a bit too much like Coldplay for their own good. There has always been similarities with Keane and Coldplay on their previous albums but just a small bit of their atmospheric Aussie pop sound. The title track is very good and a few tracks on the bonus EP caught my attention as well but there are too many tracks that doesn´t move me the way I hoped. This is their weakest album to date but that doesn´t say it´s a bad album, the other albums from Evermore are way more classy.
