5 stars Probably the best album of all times. For me it stands in the same line as CTTE from Yes, DSOTM, Animals, WYWH from Floyd, Foxtrot from Genesis. Almost perfect. With couple of weak songs (IMO, I Know What I Like and More Fool Me) it can be rated 9/10. Being the most melodical and most accessible album from Garbiel-era Genesis, it still remains very proggish and complicated in terms of music and lyrics. My absolute favourites are "Dancing...", "Firth of the fifth" and "Cinema Show". Tony Banks does an incredible solo in "Cinema..." - it keeps playing in my head every time I listen to it. What can be said more? 22, 23-year old guys made a VERY MATURE album... Me myself being 23 now cannot imagine how can this be done... simply incredible.. An absolute MUST for anyone who loves great music (not only progheads). Essential Masterpiece.
