3 stars I had huge expectations from this album because it was such an acclaimed one in the reviews in progrock mgazines all over the world. And I'm an IQ fan from the beginning and I have embraced them since Marillion was no longer my taste after Fish left and Steve Hogarth came. But this album is not mine, it has so many obvious hints to so many symphonic rock dinosaurs that it sounds like a BBC Progrock Quiz Hour! Of course there is plenty to enjoy on this album but at least half of this album my attention is slipping away.

Sorry but I cannot understand all those euphoric reviews, I'm more pleased with new progrock bands like NEMO, NEXUS, AMAGRAMA, ANGULART, MIKROMIDAS, BIJOU and JAIME ROSAS CUARTETO, they deserve more attention on this wonderful site, in my opinion.
