5 stars This album has power and beauty. The way it opens with "11th Earl of Mar" is very cool and fresh sounding, even today. This record has a ton of atmosphere and exceeding moodiness. This is Genesis at their best. There is not one bad track on the entire recording.

My favorite track on this one is "Blood on the Rooftops." Steve Hackett starts out this majestic piece on the nylon classical guitar. Then the band comes in to just fill your ears with wonderful heart touching tones. I never heard anything like it. You have got to hear it to appreciate what I'm saying. In fact the next two tunes, instrumentals, are killers. "Unquiet slumbers" and "In that Quiet Earth" are simply immaculate works. Hackett at his best; Genesis at their best, again!

Phil Collins sings his heart out throughout the album, with power and sensitivity. Tony Banks also comes up with wild and crazy stuff. This is a great effort by all band members. I definitely like this one much better than "Trick of the Tail."

I think this would classify as essential listening, so I am giving it 5 stars.
