5 stars WOW... what can I say... A strange thing happened - I've been a fan of art/prog rock for many years now and I'm a huge fan of Pink Floyd, Yes, King Crimson BUT I've never heard that Genesis is one of the greatest prog-rock bands ever (thanks, Mr. Collins for all the years after 1978). Great album. Superb, inventive, captivating etc etc etc. Opening song gives a great start, than goes a bit overrated "I Know What I Like"... after that my fav which is "Firth of the Fifth" - a beautiful piece of music (not just prog!!!). Everything else is great either, especially "The Battle for Epping Forest" and "Cinema Show". Mr. Gabriel does a fantastic job (although I cannot say he has a perfect voice) - I'm not able to imagine anyone else saying "Can you tell me where my country lies??"!!! All-time classic from a great band! Highly recommended!!!
