4 stars Yes. Like the previous reviewers, I think that this is a very good song, one of the best songs that Genesis composed and recorded with Peter Gabriel. A very "dramatic" song, in some parts "Heavy", "Mysterious", "Dark", with music which very good describes the experiences of an alcoholic who doesn`t know how to stop his drinking.

The first time that I listened to this song it was a live version included in a bootleg, recorded in 1972, maybe during a B.B.C. session. It could have been very interesting for me to see Genesis playing this song live. That live version is better than the studio version in tension, more "heavy" than the studio version. The studio version was originally recorded in 1973, and it also was released as the B-side of the "I Know What I like" single in 1973. It seems that this is an old song, maybe composed in 1968 or even before that year. This song could have been a very good addition to their "Foxtrot" album, as it is more similar in style to the other songs of that album. The studio version was also released in their "Archives 1967-1975" Box Set in 1998.
