What is wrong with more fool of me? I think it suits album perfectly but does not serve as an individual.

Me and Sarah Jane is fine, I'm surprised you don't complain about Whodunnit, that i would understand. 

Whodunnit is ghastly, but not in the same class as the horrible songs just mentioned....

it's worse than both (More Fool Me and Me & Sarah Jane). 

If there is a Genesis song that messes the flow of the album is Your Own Special Way (on Wind and Wuthering). A Rutherford song. I often skip it when I listen to W &W.

Aye. Not fond of that track either. But more fool me does not fit in with the celebration of british culture that is the concept. The love aspect is covered by cinema show. Mire fool me is garbage...
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

I've said many times that I don't mind this track at all although it doesn't really fit.

Aye. Epping Forest is in my top ten Genesis tracks....it fits the album superbly and has ridiculously good lyrics...amongst my top ten lyrical tracks of all time...sometimes you wonder why people like more fool me better than the Epping Forest..not prog fans in my view....

so basically a bad prog song always trumps a good pop song.

More Fool Me is actually just a very strong song (not everything has to be prog). I can't stand most Phil Collins eighties drivel but that was still a long way off.

Epping Forest is one of their most complex tracks, while More Fool Me is built up with the standard pop-structure. Really predictable. Not an awful song of course, but Epping Forest is in a whole other league.

I suppose Genesis were concerned that ELP's propensity for absolute sh*te tracks alongside prog classics was all alone, so they added mire fool me for solidarity with fellow proggers....its the only argument that fits such a strange event...

Clearly More Fool Me is not a prog song and I wasn't claiming it to be so. It's an honest little song that was worth a place on the album and added a bit of variety and contrast. Epping Forest is good for about 2 minutes then gets tiresome very quickly but then that is just my opinion.

I respect your opinion! Complex tracks just give me more by paying attention to the details.
