4 stars This is the start of the great Genesis albums we all know. The album starts off with the magnificent song The musical Box. You can not really say nothing bad about this song it just to great. Steve Hacketts guitar just roars and Peter Gabriel vocal are just so emotional. The best track on the album with out a doubt and a genesis classic. For absent friend is Phils first time on vocals and kind of a poppy song but like it. Then comes the Return of the Giant Hogweed, great musicianship from all the guys on this track, Tony Banks steals the song with great organ playing. Seven Stones is a great Genesis song and a great vocal performance by Peter. Harold the Barrel and Harlequin are good shorts you could call them fillers. The next song is The fountain of Salmacis this one could be favorite on the album but not as epic as the box. Nursery Cryme shows Genesis getting more creative with song structures and with the addition of Phil Collins and Steve Hackett the classic lineup starts here and they only get more amazing from here....the best is yet to come. 4 stars
