5 stars It's hard to mention a Genesis studio album as my favorite but after many listening sessions I've decided to choose this album. Perhaps because I'm a hugh fan from Steve Hackett (I've even bought guitar books to study on his acoustic guitar pieces) and especially on this album Hackett florishes as never before with wonderful and compelling play on both the acoustic as the electric guitar. He has influenced so many Italian, German, Soutch-American, Japanese and USA bands from the late Seventies and early Eighties, incredible. And the interplay with the lush and varied keyboards from Banks is at its pinnacle. But the focus is not only on Steve Hackett, all the other members does a splendid job and the compositions are without weak moments, especially "One for the vine" (breathtaking break halfway), "Blood on the rooftops" (wonderful acoustic guitar intro and moving vocals) and "..In that quiet earth" (Hackett's classic!) are top notch songs. AN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT ALBUM!!!
