5 stars This album by Genesis is sure among their best efforts for me. Gabriel's voice is shining all along the tracks for every listener's delight. It has a kind of classical prog. flavour that makes it sweet and exciting, but power and range are the most remarkable offerings. In terms of composition, we have here a collection of high level songs, especially the opener the musical box and the final and title track the fountain of salmacis. Banks did a great work and the keyboard sounds fiery and dynamic with fine classical and edgy arrangements. Rhythm section provides a perfect ground for the songs to be developed, and the instrumental parts are very well acomplished. This album has a sweet balance between a symphonic/orchestral sound and I find it quite enjoyable for each and everyone out there, proghead or not. highly recommended.
