3 stars In fact the beautiful cover art in Phillips' albums means more to me than the music itself. The instrumental-oriented 'private parts' -compilation "Harvest of the Heart" contains the worst tracks in my LP collection and even the best of it feels somehow very introvert music. Maybe Ant could be nominated for the most introvert guy in rock. Beautiful as his albums are, I think they lack of something, why I would not regard them as "Lost Genesis Masterpieces".

All songs are sung by Ant himself and the album is more 'proggy', open- minded and energic than the rest I've heard. He's certainly no great singer - to some listeners indeed irritating - but it's not TOO big a problem in these nice songs with a kind of childish adventurous spirit - see the fairytale-like cover art by Peter Cross. Some songs are a bit dull (reason not to give 4*) but this album has a lot to enjoy especially for fans of early Genesis. Take a look at the list of musicians!
