4 stars Although I've yet to appreciate "Entangled" and "Mad Man Moon", the rest of this album is faultless.

"Dance on a Volcano" and "Squonk" are classics and the solos of "Ripples" and Robbery, Assault and Battery" are fantastic. The title track is a nice pop song in the same vein as "I know what I like." of Selling England by the Pound. Then I haven't mentioned "Los Endos" yet, the quintessential ending track. An instrumental that especially live became a Juggernaut.

Maybe not their absolutely best, but one of the better albums Genesis did.

Frasse | 4/5 |
