Peto
4 stars The first Genesis record to feature Collins and Hackett as members. The tracks are exciting and at times heavy, The musical box is marvelous epic with fine singing from Peter Gabriel and heavy passages showcasing Steve Hackett´s leads and energetic drumming from Phil Collins, we also have a lovely acoustic shortie (For absent friends), the band playing cohesive and realy tight (another marvelous heavier number Return of the giant Hogweed), Tony Banks dominated okayish, somewhat monotonous ballad (Seven stones), a fast short filler song that is charming even if not very melodic (Harold the Barrel), another slower, moodier filler (Harlequin) and another Banks dominated ballad, one of the highpoints together with the opener, the melodramatic The fountain of Salmacis.

Points in songs order: 5+3.5+5+4+3+3+5=28,5:7=4 points

A NICE ADDITION TO ANY PROG COLLECTION, EVEN IF NOT ESSENTIAL.

Peto | 4/5 |
