5 stars One of the pioneers of the New Wave of British Progressive Rock,IQ were found by guitarist Mike Holmes in 1981.A year later they released a (hard to find nowadays) debut cassette entitled ''Seven stories into eight'' and in 1983 it was time for their debut LP ''Tales from the lush attic''.From the very first listen the love of the band for Gabriel-era GENESIS is more than obvious.The album is characterized by the lush keyboard sounds,the well-crafted guitar solos and the impressive,sensitive voice of vocalist Peter Nicholls.Not surprisingly IQ were and still are considered a major name progressive rock and their first effort prooves why.The long compositions,the intense atmosphere,the nice vocal lines and the extensive GENESIS-like instrumental passages complete a very attractive package that should please every progressive rock fan.Definitely a masterpiece of the 80's!
