5 stars Often considered as their best release. Occasionally, I agree, though "Foxtrot" still has a edge on it. Genesis was going through a new era here, but it still captured their unique sound featured on previous releases. The songwriting is as strong as on "Foxtrot", only with one "out-of-place" song; "More Fool Me", which is good taking for what it is, but definitely not up to pair with Genesis' other ballads at that time. Otherwise, there's not much to dislike about this album, and it still stands as one of my favorite albums ever. Peter Gabriel's lyrics are excellently walking hand-in-hand with the adventurous music, which goes from playful and whimsical to epic and delicate without making the album sound unbalanced or failed. The album never looses focus, with the possible exception of "The Battle of Epping Forest" (still a fabulous track, though), otherwise more or less flawless.

One of the most essential Progressive Rock albums. Highly recommended!
