2 stars It has begun, you're in the hands of destiny

First I'll start by telling you I like this album, I never made many efforts to get my hands on this album as it was naturally believed to be a youth sin and wasn't regarded highly by people I knew who claimed to have it, so it took me a chance encounter in the local record store, and for 6 euro I couldn't resist buying it. Never regretting it ever since. Loving it as much as I love mid to late 60's pop, as produced by The Lovin'Spoonfull, keith West, Moody Blues, Bee Gees, Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan etc.

Naturally I have a different version of this album, the original album is bookended with the two singles, and two additional bonus tracks added. So my version starts with "The silent Sun" and "That's Me" followed by the original album, and closes with "A Winter's Tale" and "One Eyed Hound", after that two bonus tracks "Image Blown Out" and "She's So Beautifull" finish my 19 tracks version of the album.

The sound of Genesis's music was largely a product of the time, with a folkish approach at pop music. larded with orchestral arrangements. For some the overdose of orchestral, almost pastoral pieces can be a turn off, for me it's just right. Jonathan King turned a piece of reasonable good, but very naive music into a mature sounding band.

An enjoyable album, and if you like 60's pop this is an album for you. 2,5 stars, rounded down, despite the pleasure it provides me with.
