5 stars I've downloaded FREQUENCY just two days ago, so I've listened to it just 2-3 times: anyway I'm forced to write an impulsive review about it. Maybe I'll be reviewing it later... (I don't think so). Well, shortly, this album is really FANTASTIC! So packed with great music, catchy melodies, beautiful passages and hooks that sometimes I was laughing mad while listening. Before this, had just the fabolous Dark Matter. Do they compare? Should they? In the end, the important thing is that IQ have delivered again almost 1 hour of pure musical pleasure, with everything needed to please symphonic prog audiences. Indeed, all tracks carry reasons to be liked - but guys: the final "Closer" is so uplifting, starting from with a beautiful simple initially repetitive theme that is worth only the album ownership! And the ballad "One fatal mistake" made me easily think about "Lazarus" of Porcupine Tree, in terms of immediate elevation to one of the best songs heard in modern times. Maybe someone that knows IQ more than I do (as I read in former reviews) would say that in this album there is not anything groundbreaking, and would maybe shave off half a star in his rating. Not me: full deserved 5 stars!
