2 stars It's not surprising that Steve Hackett left the band after this album. After standing out for once on A Trick Of The Tail, Hackett's guitar has once again faded into the background for most of this album, leaving Tony Banks' mostly uninspired keyboards to carry the weight,

The songwriting shows a definite decline, with only a few truly progressive songs. Honestly, One For The Vine is the only memorable song on the album. The rest is a mixture of half-hearted pseudo-prog, and the beginnings of pop-Genesis. Luckily, at the time of it's release, I was not a fan of the band, so I don't look at it as wistfully as, say, ELP's Love Beach or Gentle Giant's The Missing Piece, both albums indicating great bands in decline.

2.5 stars, rounded down :P
