4 stars I remember on first listening this album didn't quite grab me the way "Foxtrot" and "Nursery Cryme" did and it took me some time to get into Genesis' 'new' sound, though the opening and closing tracks was instant jawdroppers. After a week this album did it to my top 5 Genesis albums and still is today. This album seems fresher and more upbeat and 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' as it was a very tense period for the band back then before Gabriel left, and the songs are generally stronger. The charisma featured on the Gabriel'era albums is not as obvious here though although tracks like "Robbery Assault and Battery" recalls mini stories like "Harold the Barrel" and the beauty of "Entangled" matches everything the band did in the past. Overall an excellent album that should not be ignored by a forthcoming Genesis nut. 4.5/5

I also have the original 1976 T-shirt for this album hanging on the wall, probably the best thing that will ever hang there :)
