2 stars I obtained a copy of this way back around the time of the foxtrot tour. What we have is a competent but hardly surprising 60's pop single by some kids calling themselves Genesis. Most of you will know what this sounds like from the later versions of the Genesis to revelation record which has been re-released under several different names. There really is nothing here that hints at the greatness to come such a relatively short time later. "The Silent sun" is nothing special, but" That's me" has a different and slightly disturbing lyric about not fitting in. This single is now considered quite a collectors piece but like most rare singles its rarity is due to small sales which in the case is due to the rather ordinary nature of the songs presented. I would not recommend shelling out the large fee it now costs to acquire this record , but then I'm not selling mine either !
