5 stars I didn't know this band. I must confess that I bought "Listen to the Pictures" without seeing it first, only following a friend's recommendation (he was thrilled with it). He sent me two tracks in MP3 (128 bits), "Indochine" and "Ordinary Man". I didn't hesitate after listening these two songs (in fact, the first one is instrumental) and bought it. When I received the CD and listened to it, I was amazed. During two weeks it was the only CD I spinned at home, in the car stereo, in the iPod and everywhere. And now, at least, I listened to it once a month. I have read the previous reviews. I haven't listened Twin Age, but Supper's Ready sound (a stunningly CLEAN sound) is reminiscent of Pink Floyd, Marillion (the Hogarth time) and some neo-prog bands like IQ. A sound without pomp and circumstance, but transparent and very, very addictive. The sound of the guitars (both lead -¡great!- and rhythm) is incredible, inspired and tasteful, the keyboards background is efficient and very nice, the words are interesting and the horns and reeds bits are delicious, near jazzy sometimes (flute and soprano sax). There are some real masterpieces in this album: "Indochine", "Harlequin", "Open Mind", "Ordinary Man" and the opening theme, "Images of Childhood". For me, 4 stars and a half, so : 5. A masterpiece. By the way, no sonic relation with Genesis, IMHO.
