3 stars Funny to know that IQ's "Tales." was released almost simultaneously with MARILLION's debut album "Script." There's not even a very big difference between a tale and a script I would say. :-)

Obviously both Marillion and IQ were influenced by GENESIS who had been a permanent factor on the British Prog-scene for some 15 years already at the time.

The opening track The Last Human Gateway definitely is the epic and highlight of this album, together with the last track The Enemy Smacks. All tracks in between are quite okay as well, but not as good as the ones mentioned before. I would recommend this album to anyone who already knows IQ and wants to compliment his/her cd collection. For any one who's new to IQ I would rather recommend Ever, Subterranea or Dark Matter , but also the excellent live DVD's "IQ20" & "Stage".

Over all 3.5 stars (rounded down this time, since I prefer Ever, Subterranea + Dark Matter
