The second best decade in the history of prog continues to astound by the verge of its end. Maybe this time even more than before... When you hear beautifully wonderful lyrics entwined with the powerful keyboard lines and precise guitar solos most probably you are listening to IQ. Their newest album Resistance is genuine and profound story for the music and history of the music more than ever. It is amazing how the calmness of this undisputible masterpiece has been implicated into every little sequence of the notes, and even into the intervals between the bass tunes. It is charming how this highest level of production, musicianship and songwriting abilities of the band members do not need any aspects of the music / means of expression to be extreme - neither the hardness, nor the intensity, or the complexity. They just accomplish this staggering album with a balance. These musical heros just play with time signatures, intervals between tunes and octaves like the child with a toy. This is what could be called a natural balance of the abilities. Resistance contains more music, more senses, more poetry than one can even imagine prior to the listening. It is rich, it is flourishing, it is a manifesto of making a sublime music and art.
Most probably the best prog album of 21st century so far!
The most abundant prog album of all time!
