5 stars This is the perfect Genesis album, it represents what they are all about. From the start of Dancing with the Moonlit Knight which is one of the greatest openers of of all time and not to mention Peter Gabriel's vocals are amazing. Next is the radio friendly I know what i like. I like this song alot even though many might think it is the weaker point of the album. And next is the great fifth of the firth, how can oyu not like this song, it starts with Tony's grand piano skills and later on Steve Hackett plays one of the most awesome solo's ever. More fool me is alot like i know what i like, but just phil on vocals, still a strong track. Next is the battle of epping forest a story about gang rivals fighting for territories, some strange vocals by Peter on this one.. After the ordeal is an solid instrumental that leads into my favorite track of the album The Cinema Show. This song a Genesis classic and Tony Banks is shows some of his greatest work on the keyboard,this is such a great epic song and every member shines on this album, no in Genesis ever took over the spotlight. This is the Perfect album . I rate this better than Dark side,WYWH, ITCOTCK, and Close to the Edge any day. 5 stars for this Masterpiece
