3 stars One of the most blatant and formidable interpreters of Peter Gabriel-era GENESIS, this is their most classic and well-lauded album. The music is very well constructed, very well produced, and performed with all of the subtlety and craftsmanship of Genesis or Fish-era Marillion.

1. "Jonny Had Another Face" - CITIZEN CAIN (17.25/20) = 8.625 2. "Junk And Donuts" - CITIZEN CAIN (18/20) = 9.0 3. "To Dance The Enamel-Faced Queen" - CITIZEN CAIN (16/20) = 8.0 4. "Somewhere But Yesterday" - CITIZEN CAIN (41.5/50) = 8.6 5. "Strange Barbarians" - CITIZEN CAIN (22/25) = 88.0

85.0 on the Fishscales = B/four stars; a very nice contribution to the Neo Prog realm. The similarities of this music to that of the band that they are imitating are often a bit too blatant, almost plagiaristic, which begs the question: is this music redundant?
