4 stars For this issue I have to point out the same considerations as for the above album and, above all, I like to remark that it is worth an higher score for its importance once again. Well this is a usual opinion and a common idea as well, regarding of 3 albums by GENESIS at least. Talking about this work, it was the last "Progressive" issue by GENESIS and it is strange that it's often regarded as a minor work or an underrated album among their old fans. Honestly there a few pop songs, the typical mainstream numbers by Phil COLLINS, but here quite bearable and well enriched by a couple of "jewels" at least. The mythical "The Eleventh Earl of Mar", thanks to a splendid intro by Steve HACKETT and - above all - such a splendid mini-suite like "One For the Vine" or a couple of epic tasteful instrumental tracks (such as "Wot Gorilla?" and "In That Quiet Earth"), are an immortal testament of a Golden period which won't never comeback!! The other pop number "All in a Mouse's Night" is simple but not banal and characterized by a very interesting instrumental excursion!! The last essential work by GENESIS, even though it's not completely a MUST HAVE...
