3 stars Thought I'd do some Genesis reviews - so why not start at the beginning?

I really would not recommend this is your 1st Genesis album if you've not heard them before, but if you love Genesis and are fascinated by their roots and how they begun this is truly fascinating, and the music is actually really good (in places), annoyingly spolit by the cheezy string overdubs. Unlike most bands their beginning is truly laid bare, and you can really understand how they developed. And how quickly that was! - A very rapid move forward to Trespass (which is awesome and one of my favourite albums).

The track "In the Beginning" says it all - this was the beginning, and that is probably the best track - really haunting!

Other tracks that are really good - Where the Sour Turns.. The Serpent Song, One Eyed Hound, The conqueror. The more gentle melodious songs like "In Hiding" are nice too.

There aren't really any bad tracks actually.

Well worth it, but only if you are a full-on early Genesis fan, but don't expect "The Knife" here.

It's alo nice to have some more of Anthony Phillips, who was so good on Trespass, but sadly provided no more....

PS - I didn't know you could get a bonus CD version - hace a look for that version if you don't have it.
