5 stars From the first note, IQ delivers, and delivres superb. Though, I'm not convinced if this is their best realese. "The Seventh House" is a unquestionable masterpiece, "Dark Matter" is among the best records i've ever heard. And "Frequency" qualifies in thier league.

The title track kicks of with a bang, and sets the the tone in an instant. The musicians are tight, particulary the cooperation between drums and bass. But what makes this song possibly the best track IQ ever recorded, is the abrupt change in tempo and style when suddenly only a piano and a soft sliding guitar fills the speakers. Then, Peter Nicholls, the angelvoice makes his first apperence. This track proves why he is one of my favorite singers. The feeling and the melody combined is truly amazing.

The rest of the album is not so much a unity as the previous records. There isn't so much a plot or a thred that runs throughout the album. But IQ does a fantastic job, delivering powerful, symphonic proggressive rock. The production, and the "thick" sound (somwhat a trademark for the latter IQ albums) is greater then ever. not a tone is false.

I can only glorify this album, together with The Who's "Quadrophenia" and The Mars Voltas "Octahedron", "Frequency" has been on reapet during the whole summer. And to be honest, has been since it's realese! A masterpiece. nothing less then that.
