5 stars Well, quoting the king's word from Disney cartoon movie Mulan : You don't find album like this every dynasty!! For me, this is still and I think will always be the best album that God's creature human being ever able to create.

Don't get me wrong, this album was released on 1972, I was still 2 years old that time. First time I listened to it was when I was already 19 years old. 17 years after it has been released. Some years after I knew Genesis the first time form their self title album on 1983.

Yet it still kicks, and goes right to heart and stay there forever.

You maybe will see Gabriel sang more beautiful even in his solo album, Banks and Hacket played better in Selling England by the Pound, Collins hit his drums more creatively in the 80's albums, or even Mike which has to explore him self even much more after Hacket left on 1977/8, but you won't found them ever compose such beautiful epics song like Supper's Ready (which I refer as the best song human being ever created), or how they make you weep with the Get 'em out by Friday.

The synergy that this five best line up Genesis ever has, put into this album is just amazing. If you are not able to love this album, then there is something wrong with your life. :-)

Rgds, Bayu ps. looks like that I have put the review in the wrong album previously, I put it in Wind and Wuthering, how to take it out? :-)
