I'd like to think that Paul Whitehouse, Simon Day and co are fans.....
No IQ, no DT, no Transatlantic: perhaps I'll do an alternative list
Back to IQ. Here is my ranking of their albums:
01. Road Of Bones
03. The Seventh House
04. The Wake
06. Are You Sitting Comfortably?
O7. Tales From The Lush Attic
10. Dark Matter
11. Seven Stories into Eight / 98
Hello SDLovely to see you've got an IQ thread going, the forum (dead as the proverbial dodo these days) was where we first "met"
I totally agree with your rankings. Although I'd have them in the opposite order. Or any order. Because all their albums are brilliant, there's not a bad track on any of them
I would actually agree that TROB is the best though, even if it's not by much. What a great album it is...
Nomzamo was my first, and boy it took some getting into to! I didn't even know what prog was then (1989). Went to see them at their farewell gig at The Marquee that year, when PM and TE left. And like you, I never realised that PM wasn't the only IQ vocalist, not until Subby came out and I saw an advert for it in the newspaper. "Who's this awful new vocalist?" I thought Took even longer to get into Subby, but once I did....
Can't wait for a new album, and I REALLY must go see them again, it's been 4 years
As The Platinum Collection is what REALLY got me into investigating the band properly (coming around 15 years after IT), it's always sufficed as my playlist. But maybe I'll give this a go....
Love these polls percentages... Highest goes on the top!! .....
SEBTP, ATOTT and Foxtrot.. Though I like W&W and all those other early genesis albums!!..........
Same for me Noni
Nice to be back
