2 stars Do we really need another tribute to Genesis or Yes?

To me, discovering an obscure band and finding a gem in the waste is a real thrill. This record is obviously an anonymous band that fell between the cracks of time like Locanda Della Fate or Neushwanstein. Like those bands, England suffers from a critical identity crisis based on adoration for Genesis. The material is bombastic in some moments (Midnight Madness) but the desire of recreating Selling England by the Pound just turns me off like a picture of your grandma naked.

Does good writing covers multitude of sins in a record? Sometimes, yes. But not here.

Inspired by Supertramp (singing), Genesis (song frame) and Gentle Giant (not often enough).

Overrated and tacky.
