The Hollies may not have been seen as groundbreakers but as this album showed, they more than matched their peers for producing classic psycadelia. The album starts on a strong note, accoustic guitar is joined by a peircing peice of electric. the following Clarke vocals are moody but effective. A noisy but great start. Stop right there is a classic Nash ballad suggesting his future work with Crosby and Stills. Water on the brain is weird but of its time. Lullaby to Tim was a beautiful song written for Allan clarkes son until Nash put a strange warbling effect on it which rather ruins this perfect melody. The Searchers had a minor hit with Have you ever loved somebody ? Again a great melody and guitars but maybe the vocals are a bit too peircing. You need love is a great song which should have been a hit for someone. Great Mike Vickers score too. Rain on the window and Heading for a fall are both classic examples of infectious pop. The last four songs are all fresh inventive classics that have stood up very well, a bit like this whole album really. Enjoy!

Well, I think the review title says it all!
Although I'd been a serious 60s fan for a number of years, I didn't know much about The Hollies, apart from their hits of course. I'd always dismissed them as being too "poppy" and lightweight. However, I'd heard "All The World Is Love", the B-side to "On A Carousel" on a psychedelic compilation, and was totally blown away by it; I had to hear some more. I picked this CD up really cheaply; from the cover, I could tell this was going to be a psychedelic effort.
From the first time I heard this album I loved it. In fact, as soon as it had finished, I put it on to play again (the mono version is much better than the stereo one!). Since buying this album, I have gone on to collect the Hollies entire 60s output - it was the greatness of this album that inspired me. For me, highlights are Graham Nash's wistful "Stop Right There" and the slightly trippy "Heading For A Fall". Nearly every review of this album criticises "Lullaby For Tim" and "Ye Olde Toffee Shoppe", but I don't even find these bad; loads of people experimented with this sort of thing in the 60s (Mark Wirtz even made a career out of it)and The Hollies efforts were no worse than most.
My one criticism is that, unlike the Hollies first four albums which were issued in two lots of "2 on 1" CDs, this one is on it's own, with both mono and stereo versions of the entire album. Maybe I'm just not an audio buff, but who really cares about these slight differences? It would have been much better to release mono versions of this and "Butterfly" on the same CD. Ah well, you can't have it all..

The album features a song list which comprises the Hollies style we are used to listen to, though some changes were made in each composition. Particular sound effects and a subtle but profound message in the lyrics were also made. Perhaps, this is not the most popular Hollies album, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it when listening to it.

Like the Stones, psychedelic trappings don't suit The Hollies who, despite the garish album sleeve still sound like a jaunty, 1965 band trapped in the summer of love. That isn't what counts here though. Their "Evolution" amounts to proving an ability to write their own material to a high standard. All twelve songs are well-crafted and show a flair for melody. The best material might however just as easily have featured on earlier albums. "Have You Ever Loved Somebody", for instance, sounds like their beat-era hits, straight, uptempo and catchy with the usual winning harmonies. It's no surprise that The Searchers nicked it as a single.
Where "Evolution" falls down is in the studio. Attempts at psych-oriented sound effects are thankfully few as they're generally feeble, as on the treated vocal to "Lullaby To Tim" and in the half-hearted fuzz guitar. Meanwhile, the rhythm section, never The Hollies' strongest feature, is ineffectual.
Overall, this is a good album, but it could have been a lot better.
