2 stars In brief, I'm a big IQ fan, but this is simply one of their weakest albums, tied with Nomzamo.

The problem: weak compositions. It's been years since this album was released, and I swear I can't remember a melody.

If you're collecting IQ, this is the LAST Nicholls-era album I would pick up. The other recent Nicholls albums - Ever, Subterranea and Dark Matter - are all excellent, far superior to this. Further, I would recommend "Are You Sitting Comfortably?" over this.

Long songs? Sure. Expert musicianship? Of course. But where are the melodies?

Sorry this review is so short, but there just isn't a lot to say.
