4 stars This Album contains my favorite IQ Song, and currently one of my top three prog "songs" (the other two, in case you are interested, are "Suppers Ready and "The undercover man by Van der Graaf).

I am talking about the title song, a brillaint piece of work. it contains everything I like about IQ and prog in general. Great powerful rhythm's and melodies,, wonderful changes and soli. And Peter Nichols voice (which I am not a big fan of otherwise) just fits perfectly here. it is only 8 minutes but a suit of it's own!

There are other nice moments on the album, like the beautiful final part of "stronger than friction" and both ballads ("one fatal mistake" and "closer").

Although by far the longest track, an although I heard it quite some often now, I still do not "The province" which does nothing to me.

Alltogether 4 stars, jsut because of the wonderful title track. In fact I prefer having one brilliant song and nothing else on one album rather than a whole nice album with no highlights.

Frequency: 5 stars (6 really :-) Stronger than friction, Closer, One fatal mistake: 4 stars Ryker Skyes, life support: 3 stars The province: 2 stars

Alltogether 4+ !
