5 stars What can I add more? For me it's the best Genesis album. One of the best in prog rock. It's a very special lp for me because here is my favourite song of all times (although Pink Floyd is my favourite band) Dancing With The Moonlit Knight. A great track, shows what's best in progressive world. It's long, catchy with great melodies, great instrumental parts, great lyrics, great Hackett solo, GREAT!. I Know What I Like is weird. Dosen't sound much like Genesis song, but it's really enjoyable. Firth Of Fifth a great progressive composition. More Fool Me... let's skip that one. The Battle Of Epping Forest is a song which doesn't get straight to the head at first. But when it's in it's in:) After The Ordeal has a great melody. One of my favourite Genesis songs. The Cinema Show it's just fantastic. 11 minutes of MUSIC. That one is in the first 5 of the best Genesis songs. And at least Aisle Of Plenty. Closing section which brings back the melody from Dancing With The Moonlit Knight once again. 5 it is. You're not a real prog fan if you don't know this album.
