3 stars IQ's third album presented two major changes: a new vocalist, Paul Menel, and a change of musical direction towards more commercial but still progressive rock. I don't like Paul Menel as much as Peter Nichols and I prefer IQ's more progressive moments. Suddenly the reminiscences to GENESIS had disappeared and they were now reminiscent to YES ca. "90125" (1983) and "Big Generator" (1987). These two changes would, in my book, affect the rating in a negative way but it hasn't. Although the commercial approach of this album it's still high quality music. With tracks such as "Nomzamo", "Human Nature" and the closing "Common Ground" I must admit that it's hard to resist this album. Recommended.
