4 stars In my review of Selling England .. I stated that I thought Wind and Wuthering is better than that one. An opinion not exactly shared by everyone I guess. But I can explain. It's the overall performance with this album I love and what's lacking on Selling England.. Apart from the last track (Afterglow) I really like every song on this album. It's a very varied album with many highlights. The first two songs are more or less the epics of this album and mainly the second one (One for the vine) is one of my all time favourites of Genesis, a terrific track at least as good as Cinema Show and Firth of fifth. Next is Your own special way, by far the best ballad (maybe along with Dusk) Genesis has ever made. Incredibly beautiful this one. Then a nice instrumental (What Gorilla) followed by two very good ones (All in a mouses night and Blood on the rooftop). Next is the specially connected Unquiet slumbers for the sleepers ... and ... in that quiet earth. This one has always intrigued me and especially the second part is huge in my opinion. Then Afterglow to quiet things down again. A complete and diverse album causing a very enjoyable listen for over 50 minutes.

But even this one is not really good enough for 5 stars to me. I set very high standards for that. It's actually 4.4 so 4.
