5 stars This was the album recommended as an introduction to IQ all those years ago...

I was not disappointed. Excellent in every degree. And it's a double album!!! Heaven - well nearly. If anyone needs an introduction to IQ then as was done to me I repeat to any other intereated party.

SUBTERRANEA encapsulates all that IQ are about, where they've come from and where they're going, a pivotal album, rich keyboards, with superb guitar and bass work and drumming, vocal lines that actually contain real meaning; and above all excellent melodies that give the album cohesion and direction. Too long at 102 minutes? Absolutely not. An album that you'll listen over and over again - each time finding something new.

Well done IQ deservedly awarded the full marking of 5 stars.
