4 stars Hmm, the first Phil Collins Genesis album you say? This was the start of the Genesis that everyone knows and loves so well, so was it as good (or even better) than their fantastic debut? well not really, it opens off with the epic THE MUSICAL BOX which is nothing short of a mini journey through the very mind of one Mr Peter Gabriel, the cooler songs i think are some of the shorter ones FOR ABSENT FRIENDS and HAROLD THE BARREL are almost stories in themselves and the final song THE FOUNTAIN OF SALMACIS is nothing short of brilliant . As with every Genesis album the musicmanship is out of this world and of course Peter Gabriel's voice is awsome, all in all great album;

The Musical Box - 10/10 For Absent Friends - 9/10 The Return Of The Giant Hogweed - 9/10 Seven Stones - 8/10 Harold The Barrel - 8/10 Harlequin- 8/10 The Fountain Of Salmacis - 10/10

MY CONCLUSION? this is a great, great, great album and a must own for all prog fans.
