3 stars First commented review...

Old Father Thames introduces me to the Fountain of Salmacis some thirty four years ago. I was as a Watcher Of The Skies but I could only see the Horizon's. I have been using The Knife quite a lot to survive in The Battle Of Epping Forrest. The magic always have struck out my Musical Box and I have always fought For The Vine.

Of course, when I was facing some financial difficulties, they told me to Get Out By Friday. At that time I was Looking For Someone in order to check whether some sort of Time Table could be proposed. Since I could not find a compromise, there were some Blood On The Rooftops.

I had to escape to another land, to another time. So, I flew away to a Braodway Melody, somewhere in 1974. It was some strange kind of country in which alliens are put In The Cage. No Cuckoon, believe me. Only a Chamber Of Thirty Two Doors. I heard that it was located in a city in which The Lamb Lies Down. I was told it was on Broadway.

I just survived this experience thanks to the wonderful Lilywhite Lillith who Anyway brought me through The Waiting Room and allows me to face The Lamia thanks to The Supernatural Anaesthetist. After having crossed a Silent Sorrow In Empty Boats, I had to face a Colony Of Slipperman. And while The Lights Died Down On Braodway, I faced my Brother John. In The Rapids.

It was really an Unquiet Slumbers For The Sleepers but In This Quiet Earth full of White Mountain, I had a Vision of Angels. Suddenly, The Return of the Giant Hogweed was there. He was hungry so we had to distract him till the Supper's was Ready.

I was really Dancing On A Vulcano since I didn't Know What He Liked. I even offered him some Sugar Mice to test it out. But After The Ordeal, he was Dancing With the Moonlit Knight doing some sort of Cinema Show.

My friends Harold the Barrel and Harlequin were looking at me. But I could hardly see them. They were kind of Absent Friends. No Tricks here. It is the end of the story. Los Endos. Unfortunately.

If you are quite intrigued with this introduction, it's just to warn you that this is a cover album. Of some great Genesis songs (even two genuine Marillion songs will be featured with Sugar Mice and Lavender).

Some of you might be reluctant to such work. I am not, provided that the work is done with care, talent and faith. And it is the case with this Chaneton live work. I have seen them live (Genesis, not Chaneton) in 1975 with Peter for The Lamb concert, in 1976 while they were unfortunately only four of them and twice in 1977 (same line-up except on the drums).

Genesis has accompanied my life since 1973 and when a "tribute" band attempts to play these songs with such skills, I am almost like the forteen old boy I was a long, long time ago.

I am about to see "The Musical Box" for the tenth time or so (the best Genesis cover band ever) and it is always with a lot of thrill that I am going to attend their representation of a Genesis show. If I can give you a piece of advice is just go and see tehm if they come in your neighbourhood.

It was really a very pleasant moment for me to review this album. Nothing original of course. Just nostalgia. Three stars.
