5 stars Being a massive IQ fan from the early 80's meant I already had the original version of this album. What a surprise to learn that it had been reissued this year and had been given a total overhaul sound wise. Rob Aubry and Mike holmes have done a fantastic job bringing this album to us sounding like it should have been when it was recorded. Like most albums recorded by progressive rock bands in the 80's, they lacked that certain quality that can now at last be sorted via new computer software mixes. The fact that this album was originally recorded in a very short space of time did not make it a bad album just that the quality was a bit suspect. Peter Nicholls vocals were recorded only a couple of times over the days in the studio and I'm sure he would have loved the backing of a big record company to have given him the time to do them properly. His voice has certainly matured over the years and it goes without saying that he still has one of the best voices in Prog music these days and one who does not sound like anyone else. The tracks on the album are superbly mixed and sound fantastic. i'm not going to do a track by track review as most of them would just lavish well deserved praise. The special edition has a DVD and other little additions such as MP3 files etc making this a very worthwhile purchase. I'd have given the original album 4 stars just for the quality of music but this version is worth 5 stars. Excellent album.
