5 stars After reading all the reviews I took back this CD in my player again, and I`m amazed again like the first time I ever listened to this LP in the late 70`s. For me it`s really the missing piece between Lamb & Trick. What direction Genesis might have been gone, if Hackett had been allowed to put in some more songs into Genesis? Voyage in some cases could have been Disc 3 of Lamb, especially Hierophant, a perfect match of Genesis meeting folk, the dark mood of the music within the brilliant clear voice of Sally Oldfield, it`s fantastic! One of the best Genesis tunes, Genesis never recorded. The only bad fact, I think, is the master tape which was used for this CD. It has some drop outes, i.e. on the start section of Hierophant. I hope, there will be released a remastered and fixed CD sometimes
