5 stars One of my favourite albums ever, regardless of genre. Great singing from Peter Gabriel, atmospheric playing from Steve Hackett, grandiosity and epic feel (especially on Firth of fifth). Great rhytm section work by Collins and Rutherfort (especially on Dancing with the moonlit knite). A nice instrumental dominated by Hackett (After the ordeal). Great work by Tony Banks (especially on The cinema show). Fabulous singing from Peter Gabriel (especially on The cinema show). A very good pop number with eastern flavour and great work from the Collins and Rutherford (I know what I like in your wardrobe), even if that one has not that much of a melodic hook. The only downers are a lame attempt at acoustic folk rock (More fool me), although Collins sings it fine). The worst number isThe battle of the epping forest which has some nice hooks but runs of ideas during its middle part and becomes repetitive with a fallen apart song structure.

Rating of songs: in order of appearance on the album: 5+5+5+3+2,5+5+5+5=35:8= 5 stars


Peto | 5/5 |
