4 stars "Genesis was my first love and it will be my last"! It was the first progrock band I discovered and this album is the second one I bought from Genesis. One of the most remarkable facts is the omnipresence of Steve Hackett his unique guitarwork: fiery in "Dancing with the moonlit knight", moving in "Firth of fifth" (the #1 guitar solo in progrock?) and delicate in the instrumental "After the ordeal". The lyrics are often strong (many words of play and funny associations) and Peter Gabriel does a great job as the singer. The track "The cinema show" showcases a perfect blend between the vocal and instrumenal part from Genesis, what a pivotal progrock music! Unfortunately I'm not pleased with the songs "I know what I like" and "More fool me", for me it was an omen that came true when "And then there were three" was released" (I threw it out of my window from the fourth floor after a first session..). Yes, music is emotion!
