Prog Reviewer
3 stars IQ hasn't quite come into their own yet with this release. The Wake has some good, albeit derivative songs that won't always coax you into further listens. The longer tracks "The Magic Roundabout" and "Widow's Peak" are the highlights. Certainly you can hear the band's creativity start to come out, but it won't be until the 90's when we really hear the band in full force. Fans of melodic proggy rock and the band in general will enjoy the majority of this, but should be aware that the production is weak and the band put out some much better records, like Subterranea and Dark Matter.
