2 stars The first offering by IQ without their bizzare front man Peter Nichols brought something new with new singer Paul Menel. Though a little easier on the ears, Menel doesn't seem to posses Peter's songwriting ability or his flair for the dramatic.

The sound quality of the band improved but their trademark style parred down. Nomzamo boasts a couple of better than average song but over all the album was flat.

NO LOVE LOST opens the CD and has some nice effects. The bass pedals are deep and powerful and Menel does a pretty good PHIL COLLINS impression. The best of the lot here is HUMAN NATURE. I found that song to be out of place with the rest of the album because it was so close to what the band used to do whereas the rest of the material seemed to be going down a rather bumpy and trap ladden road. The title track is noteworthy if for no other reason, the interestingly haunting chorus notes.

I wouldn't recommend this CD to anyone unless, again, they are an avid collector of the band and wanted a complete collection.
