IQ - The Road Of Bones (2014)
The 11th album from this British band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of percussion, drums, bass, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
I have had the pleasure of reviewing all their albums this winter and that has been a pleasure. Not everything has been pure gold. Their last album, Frequency, was an album I had some strong reservations towards.
The band returned with The Road Of Bones.
This album is so much more complex and symphonic than Frequency and most other IQ albums.
The songs are around the ten minutes long mark with one song clocking in at twenty minutes. The music is therefore epic and really symphonic.
The title track is a superb track indeed. It is not immediate hit, but it is a grower and it really grows on the listener.
The other tracks are the same too. Maybe not as good as the title track. Nevertheless, they are full of intricate details and really grows on the listener.
IQ has again delivered the goods with this great album. This is an album everyone need to check out and listen to over a pretty long time-frame just to appreciate it's greatness.
