5 stars One thing that has always struck me with this album is its use of nuances. It is truly amazing how forte and piano live together within this LP in stunning ways. I think that the ''Theatrical'' aspect of Genesis, in its musical form (not its live interpretation), reached its peaked with this album. The Musical Box is one of the greatest piece of music Genesis ever produced and is a stunning example of the power of progressive rock. Going all over the place, in a narrative structure, with complex yet accessible music. Every other songs are great and the general flow of the album is amazing. There is a continuing mood throughout the album with high points of intencity (Hogweed) and calm serenity (Harlequin). Yet it is conducted marvelously. An essential to any progressive fan and a great introduction piece to the art form.
