IQ - Frequency CD (album) cover

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars IQ is one of the more established Genesis clones (with a touch of Yes-like upliftiness, in places). But, unlike some of the giants, their creating engine runs smoothly for 30 years now. You'll notice their last albums are actually their highest rated. Deservingly so. Frequency adds modern feel and a well-needed punch to their neo-prog sound. They don't cross over to metal, like some of their peers, but this results in a well-flowing, finger-tapping progressive epic music. One thing that annoys sometimes is the abundance of vocal parts. No, Nichols sings remarkably well for his limited range, but his tone is often weak and whiny to dominate the proceedings. Especially when instrumental backing is so good, with busy drums, singing guitar parts and varying keyboard sounds.
