4 stars The second album to not feature Gabriel, but instead a four piece line-up consisting of Banks, Collins, Hackett, and Rutherford, is very good, perhaps even reaching the same heights as Genesis did several years before this album's release. The opening song The Eleventh Earl of Mar has a very poppy, yet still progressive, feel to it, and it features some incredible keyboard parts from Mr. Banks. The album altogether, though, is not quite as good as Foxtrot and the like, in my opinion. There are some songs that flow by unnoticed. However, the album has many good, even great moments, such as Unquiet Slumber for the Silent Sleepers, an incredible instrumental track that has some of my favorite keyboard parts from Banks, and the following song In That Quiet Earth (the two most likely are meant to be taken as one because of the ellipsis that connects the two). All in all, a very nice effort, and the last mostly progressive album from the band, but not the last good album to be released by Genesis.
