5 stars The second album of the prog-era of Genesis is in my opinion one of the best albums ever. The opening number, the 10-minutes epic The Musical Box worths the money you can spend to buy the album. But there's more than this. "The Return of Giant Hogweed" is an heavy prog number, while "The Fountain of Salmacis" shows the dreamiest mood of the band led by the intricate keyboards by Tony Banks and the guitar of the (then) new guitarist of the band Steve Hackett. Arlequins is one of the sweetest songs the band ever wrote, driven by the intricate 12 strings guitars by Hackett and Rutherford. Wonderful 5-stars album.
