5 stars If you love early Genesis, chances are you'll appreciate Citizen Cain. And on their second official album, they top their debut and create some of the best prog rock since Selling England by the Pound.

Excellent musicianship, extended arrangements, and serendipitous song structure make for intriguing listening. Lead singer Cyrus is a dead ringer for Peter Gabriel, and his lyrics are inventive and interesting, hinting at a delicious madness.

Another plus: whereas Gabriel-era Genesis albums sound as if they were recorded at the bottom of a muddy pond, the engineering here is tight and crystal clear. Great 70s-style progressive rock.
