Album of the Day

Dark Matter, by IQ (2004): The latest release from these neo-prog pioneers is just what you would imagine it is - a solid slice of streamlined prog. To be fair, the band does indulge some new influences here and there. But they are at their best when Martin Orford channels Tony Banks, Mike Holmes does Gilmour/Hackett, and Pete Nichols is, well, Pete Nichols. All epic and such. And there's enough of that here to enjoy.
