4 stars Last album before guitarist Steve Hackett left the band for a much deserved solo career, which led the rest of Genesis on a more commercial oriented sound after this one. Musically, this album is similar to A Trick of the Tail with the main difference beign the darker and more autumnal feeling prominent here. There are several standout's here, "Blood on the rooftops" is one of them, perhaps the most unusual song on the album. A very beautiful ballad by Hackett and Collins, unfortunately overlooked even by fans. "...In that quiet earth" is an excellent upbeat instrumental and is one of the highlights here. The only bad thing on this album is "Your own special way" which IS a decent ballad by Rutherford, though nothing really interesting overall. I'll give this album 4.5/5 in overall. It's a chilling and excellent end of their classic prog-phase, this album can be seen as a valediction of sorts.
Bj-1 | 4/5 |
