5 stars The follow up to KC epic debute so how does it hold up agains the debute is it on the same level, my anwser is yes! Sure as many say it sound similar to the debute.. so what? all genesis and yes albums sound the same too and no one complains, this album is almost as good as the debute but good enough to get 5 stars from me if you liked the debute i dont see how this culd dissapoint some even seem to like this more then ITCOTCK. Thers no bad songs here and the idea with small interluds in the beginigg midle and end is briliant, The devil's triangle might be the most avantgarde and strange thing KC ever done and i love every second of it ecpecialy the realy wierd and dissonance parts simply amazing Cat food is a nice and wierd litle tune and In the wake of Poseidon, Pictures of a city is epic stuff. Cadence and cascade a sweet ballad and the bonus tracks ecpecialy groon is a realy cool instrumental with amazing drumwork by the great Michael Giles, his druimng is amzing on the whoel album btw and one of the reason i love it so much probobly one of my favorite drumer normaly i dont realy notis or think so much about the drums when i lisen to music except when Keith Moon (the who) play but Michael Giles is so mazing creative and orginal his druming always gets my atention, to bad he dident stay with em for more thne 2 album and he never joined another band. Anyway one of KC's best albums for sure and an essential masterpice of prog.
