5 stars This album was released in 1977, a very difficult year for prog rock as you all know. The record is not affected by this fact at all, it's an exemple of brilliant music, beautifully played. In my opinion it's Anthony Phillips best work, very close to Trespass or Nursey Crime. A pastoral work. "The Geese..." won't only appeal to old Genesis fans, it goes beyond their sound and has its own personality. There are certain pieces in this album ("Fanfare", "Lute's Chorus" or "Misty Battlements"...) that are pure classical , timeless music. "God If I Saw Her Now" is one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard. And what can I say about the cover? Well, not much, just look at it closely and you'll know what I mean.
