27 years after their debut album UK veterans IQ show that they are still a band with the capabilities to create solid albums. This 2009 release is quite listenable, and the influences that have served IQ well in the past (including Yes, Pink Floyd, and pre-1980s Genesis) continue to serve them well on Frequency. This is, for the most part, a very moody album, but it is also very accessible - and appealing tracks such as "One Fatal Mistake," "Closer," "Stronger Than Friction," and "Life Support" are easy to absorb even if one isn't a seasoned prog rock listener.
The tenth studio album by British progressive rock mainstay IQ shows them at their best,and with a definite edge.Is it possible that a band,like a good wine,can continue to improve with age?Can you possibly top legendary albums such as The Wake,Subterranea or Frequency? After just one listen to IQ´s tenth studio album the answer is a resounding Yes! Without doubt The Road Of Bones is a unique masterpiece,fitting perfectly into the band's impressive body of work whilst adding a new perspective.IQ's secret has always been to evolve their style while maintaining the essence of the band's own unique brand of progressive rock:strong guitars embedded in lush keyboard melodies,a pounding yet still jazz-influenced rhythm section and the distinctive vocals and unmistakable lyrics of frontman Peter Nicholls.
