5 stars After reading a lot of great reviews on this album, I decided to get it, and boy am I glad I did. This is one is the last studio album with Gabriel but I must say it is simply brilliant from start to finish. Rael's story is quite bizarre and I really don't get what a lamb has to do with any of it....but who cares!!. The musical ideas throughout the album are original, captivating and very pleasant. Special mention goes to Banks, his performance is simply mindblowing.

Every song is great IMO but my favorites are "Fly on a windshield", "Cuckoo cocoon", "In the cage", "The chamber of 32 doors", "Lilywhite lilith" and "The colony of slippermen". "It" almost made me cry.

There are also amazing instrumental tracks spread out through the whole thing. Some people may say they're nothing but boring filler, but I loved everyone of them. In conclusion, a Masterpiece of progressive music!!!
