5 stars 1976... I was a soldier at that time in the French army, when we had no choice of doing it or not. I was in Germany and I became the head of the record library. I met two boys : one fan of prog (and a guitar player too) who later became my brother in law, and another one music lover, a fan of classical. At that time, prog intended to be the 'modern classical music' (no joke!) but was rejected by most 'serious music' lovers. A kind of adventurous and not passeist music, far from museums and elites. And with the rock feeling of rebellion. That's what we tried to say to this classical amateur and I think he did finally agree. 2008 : I still pretend this is Hackett's best album. I couldn't find the same emotion, inventivity and symphonism in his other works. At least at the same level. Yes, this is a real Genesis album. To be compared with the best ones of that period such as A Trick or Wind. Yes, this is a gem of symphonic prog. With a gorgeous cover in the true prog tradition.

Finally a good introduction for the neophytes to our prog world.
