Prog Reviewer
4 stars IQ's first LP shows a more pronounced Genesis influence than their more diverse demo tape Seven Stories Into Eight, which preceded it, but what the band gave up in variety for this one they more than gained in songwriting prowess. In particular, on this album they mastered the art of evoking a strange, esoteric atmosphere which is unique to them. The main attractions are the two long songs, The Last Human Gateway and The Enemy Smacks, the songs between them being a slightly more light-hearted interlude. (My Baby Treats Me Right īCos Iīm A Hard Lovinī Man All Night Long, in particular, is nothing more than the intro to The Enemy Smacks played on piano.) Not absolutely essential, but still really enjoyable early neo-prog.
