4 stars The first progressive monster-album of this popular band. After the sweet 'From Genesis To Revelation' album from 1969, the band went into another, very more creative direction. Their second drummer Jonathan Silver was replaced by the not very talented John Mayhew, but his drumming on this album isn't disturbing in any way. The opening track 'Looking For Someone' is fantastic! So many variations and great vocals by Peter Gabriel.

All the songs are very fairytale-ish and melodic. Visions Of Angels, a more accessible song than other ones, contains good piano-melodies by Tony Banks and nice guitarwork by Anthony Phillips. 'Dusk' somehow reminds of the first album, but it's more adventurous and melancholic. Gabriels' flute solo at the halfpoint of this short song is beautiful. Good composition. Masterpiece of this recording is 'The Knife' which takes 9,5 minutes of powerful rock-music that found it's way better and better during the following Genesis-albums. Highlight is Phillips' guitar-solo. His input in the band was very important during these times. Too bad, because of his extreme fear of success, he left the band. John Mayhew dissapeared without any trace..

At that point, the remaining band members did not know that they would be replaced by two very talented, good musicians, who turned out to be groundbreaking important in the future of Genesis..
