From newt
A big step forward for Genesis with the arrival of Hackett and Collins and a sign of what was yet to come

A great album that was meant as the breaking in of Steve Hackett and Phil Collins. Musical Box, The Fountain of Salmaci are among the bands best stuff and are ultimately the tunes that make the album, with Hogweed, Seven Stones and Harold the Barrel being great jams overall. Harlequin and For Absent Friends are all right, but feel more like filler; and all the songs, with the exception of Harold the Barrel for some reason, suffer from muffled and inconsistent production. This album is still worth the listen and many people consider it their best, just not this guy.

This album is certainly less consistent than some of Genesis' other Peter Gabriel-era albums, but it still has some masterpieces.

The first Genesis album I bought and still my favourite. Mellotron all over it which mixes superbly with the rest of the instruments. An album which needs to be listened to as a whole to fully appreciate.
