5 stars Twilight Alehouse is suprisingly a great rack for a song, considering it's not on any of the Gabriel era albums.

This is a very dark and powerful track with excellent melodies and chords throughout.

Tony Banks hammond organ playing is superb and Peter Gabriel sounds great.

Phil Collins drumming is very good and as usual in the Gabriel era of GENESIS.

In the middle there is a flute solo but the ending has a really weirdorgan sound very haunting in a way.

Clocking in at nearly 8 minutes longs is a suprise to me how this managed to get onto a 7" vinyl disc.

I have however have this song on an MP3 format, a very underrated masterpiece, shame it's a rare song, however it can be found on the GENESIS box set "The Archives vol 1".

It should have been on Nursary Cryme IMO.
