2 stars Okay, let me start by saying that I LOVE Genesis forever, and I am generally reluctant to criticize any good musicians making a sincere artistic effort (the music biz is tough enough without people trying to shoot you down). That said, I have to disagree with the general consensus on here that this is anything close to a 5 star album. Let's face it, Genesis were still very young and immature when they made Nursery Cryme, and frankly it shows on every level. The appalling cover art should serve as the first warning to anyone considering buying it. Musically, I suppose the highlight is the Musical Box, which remained a staple of their live shows for many years. But frankly, I always found even that song to be musically awkward and the lyrics are just disgusting. Peter's nervous vibrato doesn't make them any more palatable either. I come away from this album feeling like I've just been molested.
