4 stars This was Genesis' first truly progressive album, and in my opinion the weakest of the Gabriel era second only to their debut. Having said that, it is GENESIS we're talking about, and even their weakest efforts have flashes of pure genius. The first side of the album is the weaker, my favourite track being "Visions of Angels", which is a very holy sounding piece of music, and a style rarely conveyed rarely by Genesis after this album. The second side is much stronger, opening with the delicate "Stagnation", the macabre tale of a sole survivor of nuclear war. This is complimented brilliantly by the next track "Dusk", which sounds well ahead of it's time, being similar to tracks like "Cuckoo Cucoon" from Genesis' later works. The final track is defienitely the strongest on the album, in the form of the fan favourite "The Knife", which is Genesis' first really "heavy" track, and a sign that the band were really going places musically and physically. A great album and a must have for Genesis fans. 4 stars.
