5 stars Just another supporter of this AMAZING album. The high rating and number of reviews speak for themselves. I can't really expand on what has been said, as most reviews have already covered the interesting qualities Genesis gives us with this release. I've listened to 'Selling England' often for almost 20 years (wish I was old enough at the time of release) and have not grown tired of it (not like Dark Side, Thick as a Brick, Close to the Edge, blah blah.....). Tony Banks and his newly acquired ARP Synth, Mike Rutherford and his tinkly Rickenbacker bass, Steve Hackett and his unique approach to progressive guitar, Philco on top of his game as a superb Drummer, as opposed to Phil the 'larger-than-life' entertainer he became, and Peter Gabriel's magnificent voice, also adding some lovely flute and oboe to the proceedings. 'Firth of Fifth' has got to be one of the GREATEST prog compositions to grace this wonderful planet. I'd give this 6 stars if it were possible !!!
