4 stars So what do you do when your debut album flops ? You go out and buy a mellotron and try all over again (haha). Anthony Phillips 12 string guitar is all over this one and Peter Gabriel plays the flute more on this record then on any other.This is such an impressive album.

"Looking For Someone" is all about Mr.Gabriel's amazing vocals, although Tony Banks does a great job as well. Some excellent flute and guitar too. Good song, but I like "White Mountain" better. It opens with mellotron and Gabriel's incredible vocals followed later by pulsating keys, flute and 12 string guitar.

"Visions Of Angels" opens with piano and some intricate guitar. We are treated to a little mellotron and more nice piano melodies. I really like "Stagnation". This song has some really beautiful pastoral moments, with gentle vocals and flute. There are also some uptempo moments as drums build and the vocal melody is great. "Dusk" is a dreamy, pastoral song with gentle vocals, flute and 12 string guitar. Nice."The knife" is an uptempo tune with a catchy beat. Things get more aggressive after 5 minutes and check out the beautiful guitar melodies from Mr.Phillips ! Great song !

This is where it started to come together for the band, and this is an outstanding record.
