I had the original album, so didn't use to much time on the remastered stuff. It's always those extra recordings I find interesting in this kind of boxes. Disc 2+3 contains several demoes etc. of the album tracks, ordered as on the album. They are OK, but not that different, so the real bonus was actually disc 4. The live recording was interesting, even though the quality was poor. For a regular DVD release it wouldn't be appropriate with such low quality, but it was a nice additioin on a collectors box like this, to finally see them live in the early days. Details

IQ's last studio album 'Frequency' was a corker in no small measure thanks to the dynamic and powerfull drumming of Andy Edwards. However he left and original drummer Paul Cook returned.'Cookie' had retired from music to concentrate on his farm in Scotland so I presume he must have missed his old mates and answered the call to fill the drum stool.

One of the Pioneers on the British Neo Prog scene (apologies to Martin ORFORD - I know you hate the Neo Prog concept), IQ is one of the few bands from the 80's and 90's scene that superbly delivers a full symphonic, rich in emotion music. The outstanding vocals of Peter NICHOLLS give the band its trademark, but the keyboard arrangements from the multiband man Martin ORFORD (JADIS) really add to the atmosphere here. Not enough, the guitar work from Mike HOLMES completes the last essential ingredient of the band's musicianship.

Released in the wake of Subterranea's success, The Lost Attic: A Collection of Rarities (1983-1999) is exactly what the title says. The reference to Tales From the Lush Attic, IQ's first album (its second if one counts the self-released cassette Seven Stories Into Eight), indicates most of the material included here focuses on the periods when Peter Nicholls was with the band (1983-1985 and 1991-1999), whereas the previous collection J'Ai Pollette D'Arnu was more centered on the Paul Menel years. The Lost Attic includes two unreleased songs from the Subterranea sessions, many fan club-only releases and compilation tracks, a couple of oddities, and three songs from a 1984 BBC session.

On June 12, 1993, IQ performed a concert at the Stadthalle in Kleve, Germany, to mark the release of Ever, the band's first studio album in four years (and its first with original singer Peter Nicholls since 1985). The show was recorded and filmed, and released in April 1996 as a two-CD. Forever Live is IQ's first "real" live album, since 1985's Living Proof was released without the band's consent (and with poor sound quality), while J'Ai Pollette d'Arnu only contained a few live tracks. On this double album, one finds excellent sound, very strong musicianship, and a generous set list. New songs from Ever are beside old favorites from the first two LPs and even songs from the band's two albums with singer Paul Menel...

In my opinion, there's something special when a progressive band plays an album (especially a concept album) in it's entirety and presents it in the spirit with which it was created. Filmed live at the O13 in Tilburg, IQ performed Subterranea before a packed audience, and despite a major glitch - the actual show was actually stopped after the first 10 minutes of the performance ast there was some technical problems with the light - the band appeared to enjoy themselves and the crowd enthusiastically responds.

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.

Released in September 1997, Subterranea was quickly hailed by most progressive rock critics as a masterpiece and became one of the very few "classic" albums this style brought forth in 1990s. The two-CD, 103-minute concept album is indeed IQ's strongest effort and would even eclipse The Wake, if it weren't for the historical significance of the 1985 LP. An obscure story of subterranean beings, life-and-death chase, and initiatory quest packed with metaphorical implications, Subterranea, as a concept, is typical Peter Nicholls; all lyrics remain vague, only suggesting emotions and bits of plot, but to phenomenal results.
