3 stars The second of the two Collins fronted prog albums, I consider this to be by far the weaker. The album is a lot less charismatic and emotional than At Trick of The Tail, and you can practically hear Steve Hackett's soul decaying as the album progresses. The best tracks on the album are the opener and the finale. Eleventh Earl of MAr is the most progressive song on the album, and is along with the beautiful Afterglow is the only one I would consider to be a very good track. Blood on The Rooftops is also good, and an excellent swan song for Hackett. The tracks that really irritate me are The instrumental Wot Gorilla? which is quite frankly terrible, and Your Own Special Way which makes me cringe with every listen. A decent album, but very dissapointing as 70's Genesis goes. 3 stars- barely.
