4 stars In the eighties I bought all the vinyls of early Genesis to replace them in the nineties for the compacts. My first vinyl was Genesis live followed by this first real album by the Genesis we (almost) all love. I grew very fond of it which made me decide to buy all the rest later on. I will review this one song by song briefly because they are quite different in my perception.

1. Looking for someone. I always liked this opening song bringing me in the right mood. Real symphonic. 4,5 stars.

2. White mountain. Least track of the album to me. But still nice. 3,5 stars.

3. Visions of angels. Somewhat better than previous track. Also not really the best. 3,75 stars.

4. Stagnation. I always loved this one very much, it has a special place in my heart. Great atmosphere. 4,75 stars.

5. Dusk. Very good ballad, one of their best ever. 4,25 stars.

6. The Knife. A true classic by this band, another very symphonic track, great composition. 4,75 stars.

So that leaves a very clear score of 4,25 stars. Rounded down to well deserved 4 stars. Great "debut" and recommended to start with.
