4 stars The English band IQ were formed in 1981. By the end of 1982 they had already released their debut cassette album "Seven Stories Into Eight". They released their first vinyl album "Tales from A Lush Attic" independently in 1983; this is a re-mastered re-release of that album with one bonus track added. Notable are that this album is released the same year as MARILLION's debut album "Script For A Jester's Tear", so we're not talking any MARILLION wannabes here, although the two albums are very similar in style. They also reminds a lot of GENESIS. IQ are outstanding musicians, they have an excellent vocalist that sometimes reminds of Peter GABRIEL and their music is very powerful with strong melodies. The highlights are the opening 20-minute epic masterpiece "The Last Human Gateway" and the closing "The Enemy Smacks". This is a highly recommended album, especially if you're into GENESIS and neo-progressive rock.
