2 stars Happy the Man is possibly one of the most simplistic songs of the Gabriel era. Even lyrically, it's quite simple. It would seem it is about apathy, or somethingrather. It's an acoustic song, dominated by the mediocre vocals. However, after many listens, the song grows on you and it's a catchy little pop tune for a change from the epic, high-strung type of prog (if you feel like a break). Seven Stones, as we all know, is featured on the Nursery Cryme album, and its melody is phenomenal, but I am weighing Happy the Man much more than Seven Stones, as this is the only place to find Happy the Man (unless you buy the Archive 67-75). It's good, but certainly not memorable and absolutely not essential at all. This is mainly for fans of acoustic Genesis.
