2 stars As a Genesis fan, I must say that this album is only for fans or collectors. If someone is looking for progessive rock pieces, this is not the place. At this time that guys had just 18 years or less. Even this collection of early songs is not so bad, and has some tracks that I really like. The voice of Peter Gabriel and the piano works are the characterists that stands out.

The Highlight is without doubt, in my opinion, the track In the Wilderness. Here I can find the seed of the magnificient career that started just two years after. The track has an underlying violence, specially in the voice of Peter Gabriel, and mainly in the fantastic chorus.

Other good ones could be When the sour turns to sweet (covered by Echolyn), Fireside song, In hiding and One day.

Silent sun is pop ballad (by Banks - Gabriel) with good feeling. One eyed hound seems to be a children song and a Winter's tale is rather good.

I like much That's me, a track written by Phillips-Rutherford based on guitars with a little but good solo by Phillips.

The rest are there, nothing special, and with some tracks in the weak side.

The album has all this chords arrangements made by the productor Johnatan King, which Banks and Phillips disliked so much. I knew the tracks with those arrangements, and in some songs seems to be not so bad.

The songwriting is acceptable but the production is really bad.

So I recommend this one only for fans or collectors
