4 stars If you´re ever wonder what kind of music Genesis would be doing if Peter Gabriel had stayed after The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway LP, then it might sounded a bit like this CD. Of all the many Genesis-influenced outfits Citzen Cain is one fo the few who really got the Genesis approach to music at the time and took it one step further. Not a copy, for the matter. They really got their spirit and worked their version, which turned out uncanny like a lost Genesis album (in a good way).

Certainly the fact that Cyrus voice sounds like Gabriel helped, but the overall musicanship and songwriting is great (actually it had to be), with some fine keyboards and guitar interplay. Serpents In Camouflage is an album that really surprised me a lot, specially because it came out in a time that prog music was only beginning to rise again. With long songs, clever arrangements and interesting lyrics, the group found its way to many progheads, including me.

Unfortunatly their follow up CDs would not be as good, in my opinion. I guess they wanted to do something diferent and follow that path. It was not my liking, but I hope they´re happy with that. Anyway, I still love this record and it is one fine piece of symphonic rock that has not dated since its release. Highly recommended for Genesis fans in particular and progheads in general.
