3 stars Selling England by the Pound is my least favourite album from Genesis from their fist (and best) era.

Don't get me wrong, is a good album, but there is only one song that is exceptional and that's the opening track Dancing with the moonlit knight. This song is one of my favourites and it's probably one of the best prog songs of ever time.

The rest of the album is simply good music (Firth of the fifth, Battle of Epping forest, The cinema show), but this album has the first the best and the rest of it is somehow boring and not easy to listen to the end (at least for me).

This album is worth 3 and half stars. But I'm sure mopst prog fans will enjoy it.

Hejkal | 3/5 |
