5.0 out of 5 stars British Progressive Rock at it's best. 19 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
Frequency, is it any good? IQ have undergone some major changes with both a new drummer and keyboardist since their last CD Dark Matter. Would Martin Offord's departure and song writing skills adversely affect the majestic IQ sound? Not at all. In fact, this is another five star outing from the band. There is a much more melodic warm feel to this CD; reminiscent of EVER with plenty of acoustic guitar and atmospheric keyboards. Nichols' sounds fantastic with his more soulful quieter singing suiting the new material perfectly. The vocal harmonies are their best yet, particularly so on the very commercial track "One Fatal Mistake". The rhythm section, as always, is simply awesome. The keyboard playing restrained, allowing the gentler material to breath. A slight criticism would be that at times on some tracks, particularly "Ryker Skies" which would have fitted perfectly on Dark Matter, it sounds like IQ have borrowed from their back catalogue. This is probably inevitable when you consider they have been around for a long time.
Standout tracks are "Frequency", and the beautiful ethereal "Stronger Than Friction". The final track, "Closer" is quite a unique IQ song and a real slow burner which after repeated playing has become another standout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelegence Quotient Plus 20 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you are going to mention this album to anybody please do it very quietly. This is a band who have been touring for several decades now and producing tremendous music throughout. the reason I suggest to mention it quietly is I fear that if too many people get to know about his band the bubble might burst and they will be overnight sensations? After their drummer quit and their main song writing influence, keyboard player Martin Orford decided to turn his back on the music business I recieved the album with a definite note of trepidation, could they still be up to the task? would this be a disapointment? would I still crave to see them live? Fear not. From the opening chords of the title track "Frequency" all the way through to the "Closer" the questions previously raised were completely allayed and indeed totally redundant. This yet another belter in the catalgue of IQ, The last album "Dark Matter" was extremely satisfying, as good a total piece of music as you are likely to experience. This offering adds yet again to the superlatives that should have been heaped on this band for many years. Genesis? PAH, Yes? Almost always leaning on previous glories. Do yourself a little favour and spend the extra couple of hard earned pennies on the copy with the extra DVD. This gives an excelent insight to the back cataloge all the way from " Tales from the Lush Attic" all they way up to the latest output. Superb!!! This band do everything from recording and engineering through to distribution and web sites. Give this little part of history a little boost and vote with your hard earned cash, strapped to the "Credit Crunch"? This a complete relief in a jewel case without recreational chemicals.!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking album, possibly their best? 8 July 2009
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Having followed IQ since the early 80s I was a bit worried when Martin Orford left so bought the download version instead of the CD in case my fears were realised. Boy was I wrong, this is possibly their best album. Right from the beginning it grabs you with the excellent Frequency through to the awesome Province of the King, their heaviest song yet, and one that has supplanted seventh house as my favourite IQ song ever. Definately recommended to fans of symphonic/heavy prog

4.0 out of 5 stars Their best? 8 Jun 2010
By Sijack
Format:MP3 Download
Having only recently discovered IQ (can't imagine how I've missed them), I started with Dark Matter as that seemed to have some of the most positive reviews and was delighted to have discovered a band with so much of what made prog so good in the 70s. Sure there was nothing ground breaking, but their ability to write compelling hooks and strong melodies wrapped up in some impressive instrumental passages makes for a really strong album. On the back of that I bought Frequency and have to say it is just as good if not better. If anything the new keyboard player is better than Martin Orford, some of the solos being a little less cliched and Peter Nichols voice is obviously improving with age. The playing and production is outstanding, I like Peter Nichols cryptic lyrics and the album (as with Dark Matter) bears repeated listening. What I particularly like is that there are passages that hook you straightaway and while you are enjoying those new ones reveal themselves with each listen. If you like the best in 70s prog you will undoubtedly like IQ. I have since bought Seventh House (the album befor Dark Matter), which is almost as good and the so called magnum opus, Subterranea, which I found disappointing in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem..... 3 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
As previous reviewers have alluded to, IQ are one of the most underated bands around. For those in the know it's obvious that they would have been huge if they had arrived just a bit earlier in musical history. That's not to say that this album, or any of their previous excellent offerings, are not relevant today. Make no mistake, this is a beauty! It is a testament to the depth of this album that it took a couple of listens until I really started to appreciate it. It is reminiscent of "Dark Matter" and particularly "Seventh House" despite Martin Orford having departed, with echo's of other artists in there as well. Anyone who has heard Steve Hackett's "Spectral Mornings" will, I am sure agree.... Well worth a listen if you are into Prog or Neo-Prog or just plain well crafted pieces of music played by talented musicians. The DVD which gives a taste of what this magnificent band are like live, is a cracking extra as well!!
