2 stars This LP would have disappeared without Trace had these boys not gone on to become one of the most successful Prog bands of all time. Don't expect the complex and intelligent compositions of the Gabriel era and don't expect a great production. However considering this is just a bunch of Kids in the studio for the first time this LP has some ( a few) real moments. "In Hiding" is my favorite cut but most of side two is pleasant. Some of the extras that come with various versions of this recording are also pretty good "that's me" is well worth a few spins. There are even a few hints a later glory. If you take this LP on its own it doesnt really hold water, as an important bands first outing it has some historic interest. I find that I play this LP quite often and I am actually rather fond of it. All Gabriel period fans should own a copy of this recording. It makes me wonder if there are other recordings like this that didn't get the lucky break this on did and lie undiscovered concealing some nieve but non the less pleasant tunes somewhere.
