4 stars There Was no Stars available for Nursery Cryme without the Musical box & the fountain of salmasis in this album . This was my problem with Genesis all the way , since i've got Foxtrot & nurcery at the same time . From 1971 till 1974 . 4 releases , 2 masterpieces & 2 excellent works , BUT , i have always to skip some tracks that i couldn't find satisfying to my ear . with the exception of Selling England . No doubt that , without the Musical Box , this album belongs only to collectors & fans only . So i can't review all tracks as it's only satisfying for my taste in progressive . A 5 Stars for the musical Box , a powerful track full of greatness . 4 Stars for the return of the giant hogweed , full of harmonies & grandiose . 5 Stars for the Fountain of salmasis . A conclusion about my opinion in Nurcery cryme . it was the first appearance for Phil Collins & Steve Hackett at the same time , it was a step forward for the main line-up to be more productive in future releases , the proof was 3 masterpieces in 3 years . And maybe because i'm not an Englishman , i was not capable of discovering things between lines in this concept . Still this album was my companion for the last 36 years , and really love it . 3.5 to 4 Stars without hesitation . Tracks Toni
