5 stars Surely "Seconds out" is an awesome witness of the post Gabriel first works by Genesis, personally probably the period which spans from "A trick of the tail" to "Duke" is my favorite. When I first heard about it I was not convinced about getting it, but I admit I was wrong; I took a look at the tracklist and the first thought was "I MUST get it"; it's awesome indeed, the production is perfect and in terms of audio quality it seems a studio album, anyway without missing the strong live feeling, not mentioning that rendition of tracks like "Afterglow" "Los Endos", "Carpet Crawlers" and "Supper's Ready" are simply stunning; surely it has not truly moments of improvisation, a corner point of other band's live production (King Crimson for instance), but that cannot be considerated a lack in quality, it's simply not in the band style. Surely one of the best prog live album, it's very hard to find some defect. 5 stars, a classic.
