Equality 7-2521
2 stars This isn't a Genesis album that should be disregarded into obscurity. Sure it's little more than a collection of cleverly written pop songs, and besides Gabriel's distinctive voice has little resembling even Trespass era Genesis, but the sheer innocence and naivety of the music here has its own magical quality to be appreciated.

The tracks here are simple, acoustically driven, melodic pop songs delivered beautifully with Gabriel's soulful voice and lyrics which stand out above others of the time even at such an early age. There isn't much to talk about in terms of musicianship, influence, or anything really progressive to be found within. But Genesis fans and those who can appreciate a clever pop song will certainly enjoy this. Definitely not the album to discover Genesis, but worth picking up after you've exhausted the rest of Gabriel era Genesis.

Two stars simply because this is a prog site (and the album does have a few clunkers), but otherwise I would probably call this a three star walbum.
