2 stars Odd enough, there are some very good songs on this album. The bad songs, however, make me realize why everybody related to Genesis' first album hates it. The best track on here is Silent Sun. The Silent Sun is the only time on the album where the sting arrangements work. In the beginning is also a great song. The rest of the CD (with the exception of Am I Very Wrong? and a couple of others) is sub par. Some songs have either absolutely terrible lyrics, instrumentation, singing, production, or a combination of all of these. The production is not very good, either. The other sad part is the fact that the pedophile known as Jonathan King ruined the album by giving them almost no creative control, his terrible string arrangements, and his production. I still think that they should have played Am I Very Wrong and/or the Silent Sun in concert years after this release.
