5 stars Now this is a different story from the "Happy the Man" single. "Twlight Alehouse" is a great Genesis song. The lyrics talk about someone that has turned to alcohol because of the problems and lonliness in his/her life. The chorus is very catchy and has a great feel to it with heavy keys. Gabriel's singing is very powerful during those parts and you can sense the sarcastic type approach he uses to sing the parts such as "just a drink to make me feel like a man again." The flute solo in the middle of the song is very melodic and fits in perfectly. The flute also comes back for a nice instrumental part a little closer to the end of the song. The song than builds up to an interesting and powerful ending. This rating is for the song as a song, not as an album (because you can't really rate this single as an album.) I always wonder why this song wasn't included on one of the early Genesis albums.
