5 stars I'm surprised. This is a tremendous album. IQ never show off too much technicality and are not a flashy group by any means, but the band do well with what they have. They wrote a great, melancholy album here. It has many great atmospheric textures and a well-polished sound. It's still jamming at many times and hard-hitting, but very full of emotion and heart. That's where this album majorly succeeds. There's nothing complicated about it (if not "Ocean" having just a bit of an unusual, but good beat for a cheery tune). I don't find a moment of music I don't enjoy here. Each tune is lengthy but doesn't cover more ground than it can handle. Each idea is present to satisfactory extents and always keeps me interested. It's great! Been listening to it non-stop for weeks! What didn't click at first only clicked more and more with time! There's very little wrong with this album!
