4 stars As mentioned before IQ took their style from Genesis (and probably other contemporaries) I would say circa 72 - 80 inclusive but that is where the similarity ends as this is powerful,dramatic and very convincing so called 'Neo' very succesfully continuing the prog rock legacy. Its worth noting that Marillion and IQ (contemporary at this point) were both criticized for copying Genesis and producing 'Genesis - lite' but neither band sound like each other, so suggesting there was plenty of originality. The only thing that lets this album down is the drums, they sound like they were recorded in a cardboard box with tiles on the walls, turned up incredibly high in the mix with all the mid frequencies left in, perhaps this was the desired effect.
