5 stars I know there are more Selling reviews here than patience to read them in progarchives visitors. Anyway, I'll just add some little hints. This is not simply a prog album, this is the main standard album in progressive rock: you'll find something from these songs in virtually each prog rock CD to date. Why this? Because a) this music is FREE, it doesn't belong to any of the previous main genres (rock, pop, jazz, classical...) or maybe it belongs to them all; b) this music follows all the RULES that actually matter in the building of a masterpiece and - most of all - there is a sense of measure and respect for all listeners. So, this album was incredibly new in 1973 and still is, but it sounded (and still sounds) familiar in a deep and mysterious way. The Genesis way.
