5 stars A flawed masterpiece!

Since "Foxtrot" was so a perfect album, almost "too perfect", I could not sometimes listen to it anymore and preferred a better produced "Selling England by the Pound" with its clear sound. Steve Hackett is the one to shine on this brilliantly performed piece of music and I must highlight "Dancing with the Moonlit Knight", "Firth of Fifth" and "The Cinema Show" as being the most accomplished acts in musical history, ranking as classics among the "classical" music. The flaws are nevertheless obvious: "More Fool Me" is a syrupy heart-bleeding Collins weep that makes the BEE GEES look like serious avantgarde, while "The Battle of Epping Forest" is too stretched to handle although it has fine moments. In spite of minor weaknesses, this album is the artistic top of the Gabriel-led GENESIS career and is a must for any music library.
