2 stars I looked forward to hearing this after reading so many glowing reviews. Just goes to prove that pople have very different opinions.

For me, I've tried to like this but frankly I can't listen to the whole thing and maintain my concentration. To my ears the production is poor even by the standards of the day. This is 1973 and Genesis were producing work with the clarity of "Selling England". This by contrast sounds muddy and lacking definition. Whether this is due to transferring from the original to CD I can't say.

I dare say the concept is very interesting but unfortunately the music does nothing to help me imagine it, and I think part of the reason is down to the lack of variety in the keyboard sounds (it seems to be principally organ and moog). A bit of guitar would not have gone amiss. Even more unfortunately still, the opening track has a riff in it that reminds me of the title tune to a UK TV children's cartoon called Roobarb and Custard.

Very disappointed
