5 stars This is a brilliant sonic adventure of crystal clear recording that has excellent impact of very thick and rich sustained bass works. Tony Banks overwhelmed the whole album and sometimes Hackett's guitars sound like Tony's synth (the guitar leads in One for the Vine at places sound almost like keyboards). Mike used a lot of bass padels here and the only way to capture the real sound of this album is to enjoy it loud with a powerful stereo. If you listen to this album in a walkman or a small system, you are missing most of the hard works. A point to note that this album contains a lot of instruments than any other Genesis albums (three pieces). And some pieces had exceptionally good drums and guitars. But overall Tony rules. The cover of this album is a stark contrast to the heavy use of Tony's synthesizers-- which was used in the most classical way. One for the Vine is one of the greatest prog rock written while Afterglow still drifts me away. This brings me to the point that most works of Golden era Genesis and Yes had layers of sounds which can escape your ears if you listen to them in small systems. This is not necessarily the case with ELP or even Pink Floyd.
