The 30th anniversary special edition of ‘Tales’ is a double disc hard back 32
page book with lots of extras, including the complete remix of the album
and a DVD featuring live video footage of material from ‘Tales’ along
with a host of MP3 files, original mixes, audio commentary and
previously unreleased writing/rehearsal/demo material. GEP are set to
release the 2013 remix of ‘Tales from the Lush Attic’ on 21st January
2013 (surprisingly enough) in both a double disc CD/DVD format and on
Producer Mike
Holmes: “When we did the 25th anniversary edition of The Wake we took
the finished stereo mix and re-mastered it. It made a big difference to
the overall sound, but we weren’t able to give it a complete remix
because the multi track tapes had been lost in the mists of time.
However with ‘Tales’ we could go right back to the beginning, using the
original 24 track tapes to build the mix from scratch.”

“It was great to finally give this album the mix it deserved. I’ve spent
years avoiding the studio release of Tales, just because I knew it
could be so much better. It is now”.

As progressive
rock entered its revival stage in the early '80s, IQ was right in the
middle of it. Without any emphasis on one particular instrument, Tales
From the Lush Attic is an album that offers a balanced portion of
hurried guitar and enveloping keyboards. Specks of prog-era Genesis
glisten with every note sung by lead singer Peter Nicholls, who sounds
eerily like Peter Gabriel. Even the structure of some of the songs
resemble bits of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, but there's an air to
this album that gathers attention, especially on the synth-ridden
passages. Quick interchanges of 12-string guitar and Mellotron create an
instrumental seesaw effect, peaking in the longer tracks like the
20-minute "Last Human Gateway" or "The Enemy Smacks." Changes of tempo
sneak up throughout the whole of the album, either head manned by
dominant keyboard staccatos or winding electric string solos. The flow
is energetic, never lagging, and the songs allot enough time to focus on
what is being played. The layered synth pieces don't fully overlap Mike
Holmes' guitar playing, so that the music can be appreciated by way of
isolation. IQ may have missed progressive rock's glory days, but they
hold their own on this release from early in their career.

This is no
attempt to make a few extra bucks by rehashing older material, on the
contrary, this is as good as it gets. The package is beautiful,
completely new artwork which captures the essence of the original
release and takes it one step further and lots of interviews and
impressions from the 80s by former and current band members plus some
impressions from Mike Holmes who was the man behind this reissue.

The album itself sounds completely enhanced and it is such a joy to
listen to it in all its glory. All instruments have been remixed (and
some even re-recorded) but they still sound faithful to the original
spirit of the album. The drums sounds much much better than the original
and all the intricacies come across wonderfully proving what a great
drummer Paul Cook is. The Bass is also much improved and many
arrangements that were not noticeable in the original mix are back and
they sound amazing. At times the bass sound is reminiscent of Chris
Squire and Geddy Lee and that speaks volumes by itself. Keyboards sound
gigantic and more atmospheric than we were used to. Besides there are
some riffs and solos that were erased by mistake from the original 1983
mix but are recovered here adding more depth and beauty to the music.
Guitars were given the same treatment and they're amazing, too!

The only element which is retained from the original mix were the vocals
by Peter Nicholls which were originally recorded in one or two takes
max. Therefore a re-recorded vocals would have been a good addition to
this project. However, that's a minor complaint considering what
incredible and surprising reissue this is. I thoroughy recommend this
reissue to every IQ fan.
