I'm amazed to see that only three fans roused themselves to review IQ's "Seventh House," and two reviews were lackluster. Given this outrageously poor showing I must leap to the defense of what in my opinion is one of the BEST all-round progressive rock bands (and albums) EVER.

IQ had been together and mostly intact personnel wise for maybe 20 years by the time they issued "Seventh House," so we are not dealing with flash-in-the pan amateurs here. To my ears this album is a pinnacle for them in a LONG career with some extraordinary highlights. It all comes together here--intelligent, meaningful lyrics with substantial depth and the STELLAR musicianship & songwriting these guys have long distinguished themselves by.

Every track has something rewarding to offer, but I'll confine my praise to the twin "tent-pole" tracks of this set, the titular track 3, "The Seventh House" and the sledgehammer closer, "Guiding Light." Both are in the grand tradition of progressive rock, big, long 10 minute plus statement tracks that once again re-establish IQ's bonafides as a creative force EASILY in the same rank as their big-time predecessors, Genesis, ELP, Pink Floyd, etc. Had IQ been recording during prog's brief commercial heyday, I have no doubt they would have vaulted to the same prominence as these heavyweights. Given IQ's limited commercial success, I think it's safe to conclude that only their passion for what they're doing keeps them in the game up to now.

-And lucky for us that they feel that way, because "The Seventh House" and "Guiding Light" are no less than masterpieces to my ears, Major Statement tracks that many bands can NEVER equal, but are tossed off with almost casual ease by a group of pros at the absolute top of their game.

Remember Wind and Wuthering and Trick of the Tail? All you Genesis fans that miss the old days of Peter Gabriel singing, and Steve Hackett playing guitars welcome! You have found your home.

This CD, Seventh House, rivals the two mentioned Genesis albums and has been followed up by a very strong new album Dark Matter. This group is right where Genesis was at the end of the 70's. I don't think they will go over the edge like their heroes. They are alive and well and hitting on all cylinders. Don't miss this moment in time! It may not come again.

If you miss hearing Peter Gabriel's vocals and Steve Hackett's guitars, you will be right at home with IQ. In fact their lead singer's name is Peter, and he looks and sings allot like a young Peter Gabriel.

The Seventh House begins with an engaging synthesizer charged opening number which is reminiscent of "Cinema Show". But from there the comparison ends. This band launches into a drum and guitar romp soon followed by the vocals of Peter Nichols. You immediately recognize the past but also begin to know that you have found something quite new. This band is tighter and performing in a way that even the masters would be hard pressed to duplicate.

"The Seventh House" is going to be on your new list of favorite songs. If you are not a band fan member by the album title song, then "Guiding Light" will make certain you are a fan. But "Zero Hour" and "Shooting Angels" are no fillers. They stand up on their own.

This is not some new group trying to find their way through old Genesis rifts. It is a band that has its own identity and power. Guitars are matched with drums in a way that must make Hackett and Collins wish they had found it first.

First off, I can't believe that this CD has not been reviewed on this site yet, but it apparantely goes along with the fact that 1997's "Subterranea", and 2004's "Dark Matter" seem to get all the attention and praise from both critics and fans. Both of those are equally great efforts-but why this one seems to be lost in the middle, and labeled "not true to form" or up to their usual "high standards" is an amazement to me! This was the first IQ CD I bought, after hearing so much about them, and even though it might have taken a few more listens than the(other two forementioned)to win me over-it is possibly the most consistently satisfying to me now. For those of you that know nothing of this group-they are a five piece prog-rock band from England that have been around over 20 years with virtually the same line-up:Paul Cook-drums(who just left the group after 23 years),Michael Holmes-guitars,production;John Jovitt-bass,bgv's;Peter Nichols-Lead Vocals;and Martin Orford-keyboards,bgv's,production. The most has been writen about Orford-maybe because of the overall keyboard-driven sound, and the obvious Early Genesis influences, and Peter Nicholls does sound a little like a young Peter Gabriel at times-but this band is much more than a Genesis wannabee!!!!!They are 5 super-talented musicians, and most of all-great writers!!!Peter Nicolls' lyrics are most often vague, but never silly-and always spiritural in nature, and mostly positive. This is a classic Neo-Prog band-well versed in the PROG super-groups of the 70's, but with a unique and modern sound that will appeal to all serious rock fans. This is the band I had hoped Marillion would be-but that never materialized for me.For those that always wanted Steve Hackett to come out to the forefront more in Genesis-this band is for you!!!Read more ›
