5 stars I can without hesitation call this album a masterpiece. It is beautiful and there is nothing like it- although other reviewers are correct that it has somewhat of a "Duke" sound to it- like Tony Bank's album of the same time- which is also a masterpiece, and both are some of the best examples of "concept" albums that exist.

I am a huge Genesis fan and can easily say that the songs are up there with some of the best Genesis songwriting. What I really love about the album is it's "sound", as with many Genesis albums, which is very keyboard heavy, and brilliantly so. I find this intruiging on the solo album of a bassist/guitarist, but must show the influence of Ant Phillips playing keys, although he also is usually a guitarist!
