Another gem....., 3 Jun 2009
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!!
