4 stars Who would think that it would take me such a short time to get this record? I probably had, like, six listens to it. It all started with 'The Knife', a crazy and awesome nine-minute romp, where Peter Gabriel threatens us all with that corny line "Some of you are going to die" in that impressive and menacing way, thanks to that vocoder-like gimmick. There were a couple of other charming contestants coming my way. 'Looking for Someone' eventually became to me that tacky minor classic where desperation, melancholy, and joy are all confused in the music, and I like that. Ditto for 'Visions of Angels', an evocative and imaginative seven-minute delight that just makes me think "I'm just a white boy who happened to love this kind of classical music taking a part in this poppy context." The third winner on the album is the quiet 'Dusk', featuring those enthralling vocal harmonies and a decent choice of chord progressions. Plus, I really like that flute and the acoustic guitar. I find this song a bit reminiscent of some of the stuff on "Selling England by the Pound". No wonder why so many prog listeners like "Trespass". This is formative Genesis, but it's still a Genesis to love.
