5 stars This is a top notch album from a top notch prog band. I think the only thing I didn't like about it was that they didn't make it a 2 record set. Everything is working here and the band is very together. They are not the most technical band in the world, but they play to the uttermost of their potential, which gives us this great music. All the songs are strong. No filler crap to get in the way of your listening pleasure.

"Watcher of the Skies" stays true to the studio version and everyone shines. "Get em' out by Friday" is again the event that I enjoyed on the previous studio release.

I have to say that "Return of the Giant Hogweed" is prog at its best. There is nothing but flawless beauty as you listen to this one.

Speaking of flawless beauty, we also have "The Musical Box" that just blows you away with style.

Lastly Genesis gives us "The Knife," which doesn't quite match the sound effects of the original, but it is still a great tune. This was the first time I heard it on any Genesis release.

Overall, this is excellent and is worthy of a place in the prog lover's collection. I give it 5 stars.
