5 stars After the excellent "Road To The Bones", I was not sure if the band could surpass themselves with another double album. From the first song, we get hooked by the heavy driven music. The genuine melodic ease of the band is present throughout this long journey that contains some new melodies never heard before and some brilliant arrangements with attention to detail for the production and the clarity in the sound. The band uses the latest technology with some electronic effects and at the same time, they open up with an oriental passage in the song "Alampadria". The guitar is quite heavy on the first titles and the music can't get as intense for too long and after one hour, I felt the need to take a break. You can't enjoy as much this double album if you listen to one take, even more, when the second album begins with a big epic. After repeated listening, this one is now my favorite IQ album. It's rare to see a band make great albums after 36 years. IQ is the perfect model for all the New Neo-Porg bands out there not only because the band is at the top of their class, but they can also teach you how to come close to perfection!
