5 stars Wow! Being a new Genesis fan, i decided to go first with Foxtrot, which i will review later on, but seeing all the hype surrounding this album, i decided to pick it up. Its absolutely one of the best buys ive ever done. Im a fan now. Peter Gabriel is awesome, he acts his songs, sings them, makes some of the best lyrics ever, and most of all, makes listening to Genesis music FUN..

Highlights: The intro of Dancing with the Moonlight Knight is one of the best intros to an album ever.

I know what i like reminds me a lot of John Lennon in his solo career, which is good...

Firth of Fifth has one of the most beautifull Piano solos ever, and the

More fool me is a nice breathe of air before the epic Battle of Epping Forest, which has some very odd harmony, but is very interesting.

The Cinema Show has another great solo in keyboards, with many landmark parts that will be rememberd for the ages...

Its definitly one of the best albums ever, and recomend to any prog fan...

9.6 out of 10.0
