5 stars The album that Genesis proved they could go it ahead without Gabriel. This was the first Genesis album I ever heard I heard I was about fifteen my brother came home from University on holiday with his CD collection he had two albums that stood out this one and Yes Classic I had for years wanted to listen to these bands it was the album artwork, the the name of the songs and their length that described what might be inside that would take you on grand journeys of the soul. This is really where my prog journey began; although I was a fan of Floyd and Mike Oldfield already, prog rock was both fascjinating and elusive. Originally at my first listening I was dissappointed and thought that this album was too soft but something was in it that kept drawing me back to it, perhaps it was the victorian themes and album art work, but eventually I couldn't put this down, I would go to art class in high school and paint the visions that I saw in the album's music, alongside Yes . I felt that album has supurb instrumentals that take my imagination to heavenly places so vivid, the lyrics were so well crafted, the stories were amazing, I lost all interest at comtemporary music at that time, nothing could top this amazing stuff. Very folksy yet classical, gentle but eccentric. Rutherford's bass was so warm, Collin's drums hyperactive, Hackett's guitar emotional, Banks keyboards etherial. I could go into more detail of this music but you really need to listen to it yourself, a great album with mature songwriting originality and imagination, a masterpiece.
