5 stars Ok, this is the most classic Genesis record! One which I should shut up on, 'cause all it's already said and I couldn't be able to add anything new to the discussion. That's undenaiable!

I want then to limit myself in telling you how absolutely delighted I am every time I listen to this stunning piece of art. Psychic consequences are very similar to that ones that occurs me when I take a spin to my Thick As A Brick's cd.a quasi-Stendhal's syndrome!!! This is symphonic prog I like most!!! Great music, inventive arrangements, awesome theatrical structure, "burlesque" vocals provided by Peter Gabriel, all guides directly to the "masterpiece-status"!! That 1973 album really deserves that high rank position!

The most emotional tracks for me are the marvellous opener Dancing With the Moonlight Night and Firth of Fifth while the most exciting and brain-nourishing is the wonderful 11,44 mns The Battle of Epping Forest! Oh, what a pleasure for ears and soul it is!!!

That's all folks!, hope I haven't been too boring.
