4 stars You would call it a masterpiece, and I would probably agree with all of you. But this album is most the boundary where Gabriel begins to be himself and Genesis ceased to be. The sound of this concept work has nothing to do in comparison with previous works like Trespass, and the celebrated Nursery's, Foxtrot and Selling. This is most Gabriel (more or less if you hear The Wall form Pink Floyd, is most a Waters work), but it doesn't mean is quite a bad album or not as good as the previous is just the sensation of hearing in a row a bunch of excellent records and hearing this that hasn't got too much weird things, but certanly this is the most symphonic Genesis album, something that makes this album worth the buying and including in your prog album shelves. Recommended tracks like the title, The Lamia (probably the best), The Carpet Crawlers, The Chamber of 32 Doors. If you are a fan of Gabriel's solo work this album is a must have.
