What people are saying about Iq

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brooding, frequently uplifting and stretching into epic territory Robin 2, a venue situated in the West Midlands and operating for the past 20 years, was tonight hosting IQ whose current lineup contains four of the five members who appeared on their first vinyl release: 'Tales from the Lush Attic' which came out all the way back in 1983. IQ, which has had little or no commercial success during its long span, occupies a very important position in the progressive rock pantheon and as the last two albums: 'Frequency' and 'Road of Bones' illustrate is not a band content to rest on its laurels. A large audience, which included arch fan David who was invited on stage and presented with a T-shirt to mark the 99th time he had seen the band live, were treated to renditions of all the songs that appeared on 1993 release 'Ever' as well as three tracks from the aforementioned Road of Bones. A new song 'Mome' which might be a work in progress, but sounds like a finished product to these ears followed by the title track from Road of Bones in which majesty and menace blend so seamlessly were the high point of the evening from my perspective, but there was plenty more to satisfy both the long-term fan and recent convert such as myself. The band is a talented bunch of musicians led by the peerless guitar stylings of Mike Holmes who while being an assertive presence avoids being overindulgent and allows the other players: bassist Tim Esau, drummer Paul Cook and keyboard player Neil Durant to breathe and show their wares. Lead singer Peter Nicholls, has a mellow voice and there were times when the song could have done with the vocals being pitched on a more drastic level. However, there is no doubting his capacity as a lyricist, the manner in which he interacts with the audience between songs and the way he deftly fades out of view during the instrumental passages. Arresting and haunting images projected on to screens at the back of stage gave the performance an added dimension and were important for a band which in my opinion does not have a strong visual presence. A good presentation from a band with an uncompromising vision, whose music blends simple structures with more complex arrangements and who inspire tremendous devotion from a loyal fanbase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IQ Christmas Concert I went to this event with my cousin, who came especially from France. The experience was really fun/good but I received the tickets really late, a week before! A bit unfortunate! But won't stop me for coming back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IQ xmas 2017 20 th Anniversary Christmas show lived up to the high standards they have set in previous years. Free CD ran into problems but the band sorted it out with ease and arranged to post them out to all attendees of the gig. Another great gig from IQ playing many favourites from their back catologue and a few new tracks too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IQ at Christmas A very good evening at the Islington Assembly Hall, much better venue than the O2 academy last year. A fair sprinkling of old and new material and a fair amount of crowd interaction to give the whole night a 'family' feel. Plus a free CD as well. All in All...Merry Christmas hope to be there again in 2018.
