5 stars This album is, for me, better than any other Genesis recording, even ''Foxtrot'' and ''Selling England By The Pound''. I really fell in love with it the first time I ever listened to it for several reasons: First, there is the guitar solo in ''The Musical Box'' which is, and I don't think that I'm exagerating, the best guitar solo in any Genesis song. Second, the beggining of ''The Return of the Giant Hogweed'' is really great with the keyboards and the tapping guitar riffs and I also really like how Peter Gabriel sings on that song. Third, the melody in ''Seven Stones'' is the best on the album and I think that the lyrics are also great. Finally, the last song on the album, ''The Fountain of Salmacis'', is also the best on all the album with the keyboards and all the stuff.

My conclusion is that this album is a real symphonic prog masterpiece and any prog fan who dosen't have it should go get it immediately.
