3 stars Well, I'm a huge huge fan of Genesis which is probably my favourite band of all times. I'm just writing this review because of my disappointment to see Selling as the preferred record of the Gabriel Era of Genesis. Well - not a bad album of course, and after all a masterpiece just as every record of this period. But I can't say that this record is flawless : Despite the incredible power of Firth of fifth and Cinema Show, Selling is affected by some average tracks like I Know what I like (yes, this one... the melody is just so poor), More fool me (a track that I just skip every time), Battle of epping forest (bad vocals on a nice music). My feeling is that Selling is the mirror of "Wind and wuthering", with very nice moments but some ininteresting ones. Nursery Cryme, for example, has no flaws except Harlequin, even Trespass is more constant in quality. That's what I will put only 3 stars tu Selling : sadly, this 3 stars album is better than 99% of the other bands 5 stars ones, but it's just to try to add my two cents on the Genesis progarchives record sorting :-)
