5 stars I just bought this and it is my first Genesis album. I never thought much of Phil Collins (as a solo artist) so I automatically ignored Genesis as well. Silly me. After reading hype for the Gabriel-era Genesis from other artists I like and admire, of course I had to check it out. And hey, it's brilliant stuff!

And so we come to this album. What a great choice. I'd already heard the first two tracks earlier and they had impressed me enough to make this my first Genesis purchase. The record doesn't get boring at any point, there is no filler and the material ranges from the more pop-oriented songs (I Know What I Like..) to the prog epics (The Battle Of Epping Forest, The Cinema Show). Collins actually does the vocals on "More Fool Me" and he sounds suprisingly much like Gabriel, kinda makes me wish I had gone to see Genesis on their tour this year.. (nah, it's gotta be Gabriel :-P).

Absolutely awesome album, most highest recommendations.
