Dark Matter takes up where IQ's "Seventh House" left off. Moody, evocative, absolutely brilliant at times, and a Prog Rock GEM of an album. Although containing just five tracks, each track, as per usual with IQ latter-day albums, seamlessly flows into the next. The final track, "Harvest of Souls," the longest, is an IQ masterpiece. It contains all of the attractive elements which have made IQ synonymous with quality progressive rock music: powerful and cerebral vocals coupled with melodic but haunting music. Yet, the first four tracks are really vintage IQ material too. Especially "You never will." In short, since buying this album, almost a month ago, I haven't stopped listening to it. These guys are getting better with each new album. "Seventh House" and "Ever" were fabulous works. But "Dark Matter" has taken IQ beyond fabulous into the realm of sublime. Highly reccomended for all those folks fond of the Fish era Marillion sound, Jadis, Pendragon, Arena, Camel, Steve Hackett, etc.
