5 stars The masterpiece of the band, and undeniably a classic of the genre. From beginning to end, this is hard to fault. CTTE is a bold and powerful opener, that is a real contrast to the traditional Genesis school of epics. Both this and And you and I use classical structures, which gives both tracks good cohesion. CTTE is all aimed at the end, however, whereas And you and I is perhaps more balanced. Both are fairly close to perfect. Siberian khatru can recieve a bit of criticism, and while, yes, it is not of the same standard as its fellow two tracks, that is not saying too much. The only criticism I can give it is that it perhaps goes on for too long.

Overall, this is a good candidate for best album of all time.
