3 stars I remember when I bought this album as a teenager from a local store of second hand records. I then wondered why anybody would sell away so intriguing albums away. Now twenty years after I see myself in situation I could consider doing the same. The magic of Peter Gabriel seems to be a crucial factor for me, and the band's personal album highlights reside on the early phase of the group's career, and never have grown integral as a group due some unstability or musical elements on their production line. The album covers felt very cozy, reminding the usual fall / winter / summer / spring of Finland. The overall sound is clear and there is happy energy in mystically starting "Eleventh Earl of Man". "One for The Vine" and "Your Own Special Way" certainly fusion beautiful ballad elements to more complex arrangements and sonic details. Yet this energy and evolvement of this record feel somehow artificial, or more possibly the psychological state vibrating from the album does not match my own mind. Maybe this is a indication of my own boredom and/or disability to relate with the musicians vision. As this disability exists also partly on the most hailed early 1970's albums of the band, my opinion should not be taken too seriously. Maybe some day I'll rest on the unquiect slumbers for the sleepers, and from that quiet earth I'll find afterglow illuminating my vision to the deeper core of this symphatethic, but slighly mundane vinyl.
