If this was Thanksgiving Day, when it came to my turn to tell what I am thankful for, I would say low rider jeans on cute girls and the fact that IQ continue to stay in their genre while keeping it interesting. I spend loads of cash ordering Prog CD's from amazon based on reviews I read. I am 95% of the time dissapointed.
IQ never sounds like they are trying to be progressive for the sake of being prog to my ears. They do it because they love it.
I would swear at times when I have the headphones on, surrounded by darkness with the pungent scent of hemp wafting through the room that I am listning to Genesis sans 1973.
No other band does that for me anymore. There is no attempt at a single on this CD AND, since signing to Inside Out, I had it the day it came out. I'll give you no track by track review. I will say that Harvest of Souls may compete with my love for the song "The Seventh House" - (a prog masterpiece). I'll just say that when this band retires, tears will flow.
I only wish I didn't have to wait 3-4 years in between releases,
but as I have said, it's worth the wait. If anyone can tell me if they will be in the states, ANYWHERE in the states, please let me know. email@example.com. I'll buy your ticket!
