From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Genesis went pop by the end of the seventies with "... And Then There Where Three". But in 1983, we were gifted with a revitalized "Genesis" come back provided by Fish and his partners! "Script For A Jester's Tear" is an album that marks the return of progressive rock as a great musical force, that was getting lost at the time. The first time I played this album, I thought "Is this the voice of Peter Gabriel?". Of course Fish's singing has much in common with Gabriel's, but the fact is that the whole sound is influenced by the classic Genesis. And being this way, the results couldn't be bad! The album comprises six songs with more than 7 minutes each, except for "He Knows You Know" that has a little more than 5. This album is a must for every serious progressive rock fan. 5 stars!!!
