4 stars This is a collection of rarities songs that some are previously unreleased charts. This also could be added as the extra track for each their albums. I'm so impressed with this album, there are great songs inside. Sometimes I think myself, why are they didn't add the tracks to each their albums ? If they did, maybe could be more attractive ones. But, that's ok, I'm so grateful, because I think this album is very interesting. We can hear the difference between type of voice from Peter and Paul. For me, I prefer with Peter voice, that more valuable, just like Peter Gabriel did.. :) Beside that, we can see another side of character songs unobviously, that never heard in their albums. 'Hollow Afternoon' is a sample great one which provided the two differences of song in this album. This one has an unique sound effect on the voice that never used before. As the sleeve note mentioned, this song had ever performed once and only at The Marquee, London in 1984. Therefore, it makes me feel enjoy at the start. Well, we can also see some interesting tracks which are really different, like 'Awake and Nervous', 'Just Changing Hands' that reminds me to 'Everyday's Hackett, then 'Widow's Peak' even 'My Legs' whose the funny voice by Peter. Fifteen titles seems so not enough to hear, but I believe for whoever as IQ fans, this cd is a must have. Atang - Indonesia.
