5 stars Now a fantastic release, this being the first IQ album i have fully heard i was expecting something to really grab my attention (as ya do with Neo-prog) and i have to admit, i really wasnt at all unhappy about this album, it fullfilled every expectation, fantastic compositions, top class musicmanship, amazing melodies, quite a treat for all prog fans really. From the steller opening title track FREQUENCY everything just seems to take off, and i love how they have composed it to a point where you have an upbeat prog song, then a slow almost ballad like track, then an epic track, then another slow song i also love the themes that appear and reappear throughout. Standout track include the title track (ive already mentioned before), ONE FATAL MISTAKE has to be one of the most beautiful ballads ive ever heard comming from a prog rock band, the two epics are of course also standouts STRONGER THAN FRICTION and THE PROVINCE, with Stronger than Friction being just slightly better because of those fantastic closing 2 minutes, the whole album is a standout though, its one of those albums you have to hear to believe;

Frequency -10/10 Life Support - 9/10 Stronger Than Friction - 10/10 One Fatal Mistake - 10/10 Ryker Skies - 9/10 The Province - 10/10 Closer - 9/10

MY CONCLUSION? this is a fantastic album from start to finnish, a real prog jem and im really looking forward to listening to more albums by this amazing band :)
