5 stars This is a really good album. It shows the style genesis would take on thier next couple albums. It has the masterpiece the Musical box which I believe is one of the most epic genesis songs. The guitar solos on that song are also fantastic. Then we have The return of the giant hogweed. This song is good but it isnt amazing. The vocals are too harsh and it has some weak points. Seven stones is fantastic, Peters voice sounds great! The fountain of Salmacis is another masterpiece. Great sweeping keyboards, awesome tapping solos, and peter at his best. All these songs are great but there are some weak songs. harold the barrel is a filler song and has nothing going for it. harlequin and for absent friends are nice but are nothing special. Therefore the album doesnt get a 5/5 because these songs take away from the experience. Overall its still a great album if you can get over the weaker songs. Buy it.
