4 stars In one word: Brilliant

Iq - this underrated neo prog band, who never gained that big attention like their shoulder to shoulder companion band from mid '80's Marillion - they've done it with this album. Excellent musichianship through all the album, showing that they are still on the baricades woffering some very polished and in same time very refined moments in prog. The album released in 2000 named simply The seventh house is another examle of how must sound a band in these days, neo prog , but very uplifting with great moments and strong interplays between musicians, specially the keys of Martin Orford and guitar of Mike Holmes is simply awesome, just check out the opening track - The Wrong Side Of Weird - worth to have the album only for this track - kick ass piece. The rest is strong aswell prog pieces, the second one Erosion - is dark very atmospheric, sometimes sounds like a gothing band but in the end you realize is just another aspect of prog music very well composed and played, and the title track are best pieces along with the The Wrong Side Of Weird. The voice of Peter Nicholls shines on every track, one of the most distinguished voices in neo prog zone. So, a great album who desearve all the aplauses from each of you intrested in their music, this album worth every second.4 stars easely, but not as good as my fav from them their masterpiee from 1985 - The wake.
