4 stars 4.5 stars actually!

Another album that tells stories but this time, is too muh serious! The most funny storie here is "The Battle of Epping Forest", a pause to relax.

The album is full of good compositions: the manner that begins and ends, "Dancing with the Moonlit Knight" and "Aisle of Planty" are the best moments along with the keyboard solo on "The Cinema Show". "After the Ordeal" reminds "Horizons" but less erudi and more folk - another great Steve Hacket composition.

The reason why I don't give 5 stars for this album is the same as in "Foxtrot": some times is kind of boring and the a little part of Genesis theater magic is lost!

For sure is a must but it is not a masterpiece.
