5 stars Just to say a few words about this one: Peak of Genesis' creation, this album is not only a timeless testament of progressive rock, but also a remarkable work of art. With it's unique, unmistakable and trademark Genesis sound, Selling England by the Pound is incredibly gentle and subtle, yet powerful piece of music with hunderds of delightful bits, twists and moments; for example, Aisle of Plenty is a minute and a half of musical heaven. There's nothing like it. Not to mention Firth of Fifth or The Cinema Show - I'm getting goosebumps already. It's hard to tell what their secret is: there must be something in Collins' masterful drumming, Hacketts alluring guitar playing, Gabriels characteristic, emotional singing, Banks' keyboard and Rutherfords string heaven. Add some flute and oboe, lots of talent, inspiration and intuition, a bit of a magic and that's it I guess! Very few albums can compare to this beauty.
