5 stars My first listening experience of the current IQ line Up was the live album IQ30 - Live In Zoetermeer (2012) and my overall impression was 'Um & Aargh!, the band sounds thinner', so my approach to the new Studio Album was cautious at first, but after a few listenings I completely surrender to this 'new' incarnation. Thinking back, at the beginning of the 90s, I deeply missed the departure of Tim Esau, then I fell in love with JJ, but now I am so glad to notice that the strongest ingredient within this studio effort is the founding rhythm section of one of my top 5 rock bands ever. Every drum beat and bass note are precise and of such good taste. Production departament is top class again, but Mike's guitar work is at the second row, so in a way this album seems to be the effort of a different band than 'Frequency'. Bonus Disc is full of prog nonsense to good amount, so what else can I ask for? Enjoy or Die. Essential Prog.
