5 stars 4.5 The fifth album of genesis, the second one of my opinion, but so close to the masterpiece of Foxtrot. Musically is better than the previous one, mainly in the structure of the music flow and how the keyboards set the ambient, also the keyboard solos are pure gold, however it doesn't make it last in the entire album and there are few moment where music is not as good as mostly is in the entire album. The lyrics are very good and Peter Gabriel voice make the music better with his beautiful voice. Although very few moment are not so good, they are overpassed by the excels of the almost all the album. The songs that I really liked and stand out were firth of fifth, The Battle of Epping Forest and Cinema Show. A masterpiece of Prog rock and a must have album.
