2 stars The Geese and the Ghost definitely has its moments which prove the artistic potential and subtlety of the author. But when I first got in touch with the album, its pictorial expression, its reflective and past revoking titles, with a bunch of talented musicians and instruments, I was expecting something close to Genesis' Trespass, Nursery Cryme, even Foxtrot. Unfortunately, instead of a masterpiece, I experienced a big disappointment. This album is more like a working material, as a musical framework for a good symphonic prog rock album (with more vocals, keyboards and drums of course) than an album with its own direction and identity. The biggest paradox is the fact that probably the most impressive track on the album (Virgin edition) is the bonus Master of Time. Good as dispensable background music.
