3 stars I love IQ, especially after seeing the 'Stage' DVD concerts, which clearly show a well-oiled machine going through its motions. The debut IQ release, 'Tales from the Lush Attic', was released during a period when I thought PROG music was no more and I only much later, around 1995, listened to this album for the first time.

The opener is the lengthy 'The Last Human Gateway', which shows a few good moments, but nothing too spectacular. Track 2, 'Through the Corridors' is a short energetic piece while 'Awake and Nervous' is a nicely structured and fine song. There's a short filler before we get to 'The Enemy Smacks', which by far, is the better track on offer here. The CD version has a bonus track 'Just Changing Hands'.

As far as debuts go I guess it's a good effort. 3 Stars.
