5 stars Does this site really need another review of this album? Probably not. That said, score another for "Selling Engalnd by the Pound" which is number 2 on my recent list of favorite Genesis albums, a fraction behind Foxtrot. The winning formula again appears, the strong opener, the interesting lyrics, Gabriel's impassioned yet quirky vocals, excellent and varied music throughout and an outstanding epic closer (if you don't count "Aisle of Plenty" which seems to be a reprise of Dancing). Like Foxtrot, it took repeated listens to fully appreciate this one. But that is one of the joys of this era of Genesis; you don't tire of it easily and want to keep it spinning Clearly one of the strengths of Genesis was the compositional skills demonstrated. Music and vocals share center stage as do the various instruments. There is always something interesting (and a little unexpected) going on to hold on to the listener's attention. Not THE best prog album of all time as some claim, but definitely way up there!
