IQ - Dark Matter (2004) Retail CD
In the words of the track "Born Brilliant" on this album IQ are to a certain extent "Pretentious and derivative, You've seen it all before" however what's wrong with a bit of that? Yes their rhythm arrangements and in particular missing beats in the drumming and drumming on the offbeat is reminiscent of Genesis in the Foxtrot era but all groups are guilty of having influences and some are worse than IQ. For example is not Oasis little more than a third rate Beatles cover band?
The songs here have one great strength over many prog bands and that is the lyrics are not merely drivel as per Jon Andersonmore… at his best (Bless him I love Yes) but are actually trying to deal with worldly matters such as the loss of your father in "Red Dust Shadow" and our consumer American led society in "Harvest of Souls"
I find the vocalist in this band (Peter Nicholls) a lot stronger than others in this field and his voice holds up under the pounding it takes. I also admire the rhythm section of Paul Cook and John Jowitt notwithstanding their obvious Genesis/Yes influences
Well worth a listen and a worthy addition to any prog fans collection.
