4 stars The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is because I don't think it is essential for any self respecting prog fan to own this album. If you just love music, then I think this is an excellent album to own and listen to. All you pretentious reviewers who gave this album one star should lower your expectations, because Genesis aren't ever going to release an album with extended mellotron passages and songs about flowers and volcanoes and blood on the rooftops. I used to look down upon their later work as well, but as I listened to this album more, i realized there wasn't a single bad track on the album. There's something here for everyone; ten-minute songs, radio friendly tunes, interesting meter/key changes... in fact, Tonight, Tonight, Tonight probably has the widest scope of any Genesis song since Supper's Ready. There's shades of Mama, In The Air Tonight, Man of Our Times; even The Musical Box, because of the change in the middle and the subject matter is a bit similar. Anyway, I'm winding a bit, so to wrap this up; if you aren't afraid to listen to different music, even if it's accessible and more radio-friendly than Selling England or The Lamb, then I recommend this album to you.
