5.0 out of 5 stars The best album .. ever (no pun intented) May 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, ignore the extra tracks, I'm reviewing this as it originally came out on LP record.
As an IQ fan you either love this album, or you hate it.
It marked a 90deg change in the band's direction as a result of Peter being replaced by Paul. Some people might argue that Peter was not good enough a vocalist, on their early albums. Others might think that Peter added a unique sound to the band.
Either way, you cannot compare this, or the other Paul album, Are You sitting Comfortably, to any other IQ stuff. Paul menal gave the band the ability to create the more commercial songs with his great voice. There is no way Peter could sing half the stuff on this album.
If you listen to this without any preconceptions, there is no denying this album stands out as one of the best albums ever made. If you love progressive rock, you may well criticise this for being way too commercial. But it is no more commercial than similar bands of the time, marillion for example.
If you are a fan of early 80's neo-prog rock, this is the ultimate album. If you prefer the uncommercial side of prog rock, with long 20 minute songs that contain at least 2 solos from every band member, then get Subterranea, IQs next best album.
P.S. I've just noticed that the next review is also by me .. ignore that one.

4.0 out of 5 stars IQ - Change Vocalists And Put Out A Solid Album May 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just when IQ seemed poised to really hit the big time their lead singer Peter Nichols left the band. I have never really heard the whole story behind Nichols departure (he would later return), but it had to have come as a shock to the IQ faithful at the time. The new vocalist and lyricist would be Paul Menel. His voice was somewhat similar to Nichols, and in fact may have had a better technical voice than Nichols at the time (although Nichols has improved greatly over the years). "Nomzamo" would be a slightly more commercial sounding album than the band's previous efforts, but there is still enough bona fide prog to make me happy. It is interesting to read reviews of this album by IQ fans. They seem to either really love it or completely trash it. Personally I have always really liked it and think it is one of the band's most underrated efforts. There are several really great tracks to be found here. The opener "No Love Lost" is a driving rocker that should have been a hit single. "Promises" is a cool little love song. The title track "Nomzamo" is something different with tribal rhythms from drummer Paul Cook. "Human Nature" is a bit commercial, but still a cool song. The album closer "Common Ground" is one of my all time favorite IQ tracks. The lyrics in particular are great telling the story of an old German soldier looking back at his experience in the trenches in World War One. Amid the horror it is also remembered as "Another summer's day in France. Great stuff. As mentioned previously this album gets very mixed reviews from IQ fans so your mileage will vary, but I have always enjoyed it as a very good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nomzamo is the best examples of IO's immaculate music. October 2, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The album is a great example of IQ's capability to produce immaculate and monarchical music. Nomzamo and No Love Lost are inspiring and breathtaking. The lyrics of Human Nature are a masterpiece. The rythm and melody changes are stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE progressive rock album of the 20th Century February 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
IQ were always good before this, but were lacking something in the vocals department. This album, with a change of vocalist to Paul Menel, was the perfection the band had shown the potential to produce. A mixture of commercial poppy songs in 'Promises' and classic prog rock in 'Nomazamo', for example, this album has it all including a very talented vocalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating songwriting and complex arrangements! February 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
IQ has a penchant for taking basic melodies and arranging them into complex stories. Such is the case on "Common Ground" in its lyrical description of war; kind of what one would have seen in "Private Ryan". They also display simplicity of relationships in "Passing Strangers". Very positive and uplifting music in a day and age when pop music is in a creative rut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not strictly progressive but... January 8, 2007
By Richi
Format:Audio CD
This album was released during the period in which IQ changed temporarily his original singer (who then reunited with the band and still remains in the group). With the entrance of the new vocalist the group acquired a more commercial oriented approach, which perhaps hadn't the favor of the most progressive fans of the band. Still, for me is a very good album with an excellent and very catchy song: "Promises"
