I think it's a corker but will have to give it a few more spins to rate it

At this point in time, I like it but I don't love it - it's a bit too miserable for me.

Ever is still top of the heap AFAIC! cool

Apart from "sullen", these seem to be the same reasons, that got you through with Pendragon. I regret that, but that is your taste, and I accept it. Meanwhile, I would say, that The Road Of Bones has become my favorite IQ album. I do not say that light heartedly. For many years, Subterranea has been my first choice, but The Road Of Bones beats it. The main reasons are fantastic songwriting, real progression in sound and a perfect performance and production.

Different from Noni, I do no longer regret the departure of Martin Orford, although I still appreciate his contributions to IQ highly. But Neil Durant has put his own stamp onto the band`s music. His work on The Road Of Bones cannot be praised highly enough.

I received it today, as an anniversary present from my wife. Have played all of CD 1 and the first 2 tracks from CD 2. I like what I've heard so far but it always takes a few plays to really appreciate good music.

I only started collecting IQ's music from Dark Matter, having seen them play at The Robin on that tour. I love that album and Frequency is very close behind, IMHO. I've gone back and bought a few more albums since but those 2 are my favourites.

Martin contributed to a lot of writing, probably why there were lots of arguments in the recording session. I feel this more of a Mike Holmes and the super vocals of Peter Nichols project. Just my opinion. As my previous post, this album is on the harsher side. Don't get me wrong here, there are some greats tracks. More so, on the double album! smiley

You need to give that second disk some eartime Steve. I rate it higher than disc 1. How on earth tracks like Constellations and Ten Million Demons could be considered 'bonus material' is quite beyond me! shocked

I agree, this should of been sold as a double album not single. I would never buy an album with less material, always the most!!..... Must be my greedy nature!!.... grin

I played CD 2 today and all of CD 1 again, after that. CD 2 is incredible and the songs you listed were the standout tracks for me too wink

All IQ fans must get new Blu ray Scrape Across the Sky. Simply stunning.
