5 stars What can I say about the album that has not already been said? Possibly the last great progressive album of Genesis (although I like the band's pop phase). It is also the last album with Steve Hackett (this brilliant guitarist) before he left for his career solo.ironically is one where he there is greater participation , even though Banks's keyboards dominate everything, for a change (not for nothing that is his favorite album). The album follows the line of the former, the masterful "A Trick of Tail ", but is less pastoral and jazz-fusion.Nothing who compromising your quality.

The first two tracks are the best on the album, and perhaps some of melhored songs of all time in the band. "Eleventh Earl of Mar" is an excellent opening track, showing how the Genesis knows how to open your album with class. "One for the Vine "is the largest and most reomāntica track over the 10 minutes it varies his mood often, but always remained melancholy and beautiful. " Your Own Special Way "is more commercial and perhaps the weakest of the album, but wait a minute: there is no weak songs here! Deep, deep down, I like it. "Wot Gorilla?" contains remnants of jazz-fusion of the previous album, and is nice, but "Please Do not Touch" by Hackett had been included in her place, things would be much better. "All in a Mouse's Night" is a track with the mood of the Gabriel period (see "Harold The Barrel")-their lyrics talk about "Tom and Jerry "(?), but its powerful guitar solo closes it beautifully."Blood on the Rooftops "is the kind of which song you like from the first time that ouve.Her opens with a guitar solo in the style of Hackett, before the wonderful voices of Collins (the best of any song he ever sang in Genesis). The last three songs form a single song. "Unquiet Slumbers for Sleepers ..." and "... In That Quiet Earth" are completed at all, even in the title, although they differ in sonority.The first is a dark keyboard solo, while the second will be more joyful, seeming to have left the solo album Hackett "Voyage of the Acolyte": it starts with a great guitar solo, before moving on to a great solo by the end we teclado.Por "Afterglow, " a beautiful ballad from Banks and a hymn to this day among the fans.

An excellent album, very underrated and overlooked unfortunately, but that surely can not miss in your collection prog! 5 stars
