5 stars Genesis certainly got their act together after their dismal debut. In a complete turnaround, they went from sappy 1960s-style pop songs to full-throttle symphonic progressive rock with dark lyrics and some amazingly innovative musicianship, such as the dual 12-strings and Banks' haunting keyboards. This is still a pre-Hackett and pre-Collins Genesis, but don't let that alarm you, as Phillips and Mayhew do a wonderful job. This album would set the foundation for the masterpieces that were to come.

Not quite as exquisite as Foxtrot, Nursery Cryme, or Selling England by the Pound, so I'd have to say 4.5 stars for this almost masterpiece. However, due to it's historic importance that led Genesis down the path of progressive rock, I'm going to round it up to five stars rather than round down. An excellent, highly recommended album, especially for its historical significance.
