4 stars "Dark Matter" is truly nothing short of the truth with IQ digging into their "noir souls" and reaching right out to grab us right from the opening foreboding synthesizer swells of "Sacred Sound" to the epic "Harvest Of Souls". Okay so this I suppose will sound like a cliché but what the heck, but this album really brings back the early IQ feel with some darker (aka "The Wake") eerie transitions and darker melodies. The membership of IQ is still Paul Cook (drums), Mike Holmes (guitars), John Jowitt (bass), Martin Orford (keys) and Peter Nicholls (vox). As you would expect the musicianship, vocals and lyrics are nothing short of beathtaking with some tremendous musical moments for your little ears to enjoy. Epic track "Harvest Of Souls" is a real doozie with 6 parts with hints of YES, PINK FLOYD, MARILLION and of course the one and only IQ. "Dark Matter" is definitely forever for me !
