5 stars IQ is according to me one of the best groups of (neo)progressive of 1980s (with Marillion). This album is magnificent. Naturally an inspiration to be looked for of the side Genesis and Yes, but so much the better if it is "to lay" an album of this value. A lot of lyric and symphony. Martin Orford's synthesizers are magnificent, and the voice of Peter Nicholls irreproachable. Sublime inspirations and more quiet parts alternate with happiness. A very successful album which testifies of the passage of torch between the old groups of progressive so tired (Yes, Genesis, Supertramp...) and the young generation of the 80s) which it even rather badly aged.
