I am so glad to see others acknowledging this album as a criminally underrated classic. It's in a weird place of history for the band, and served as a transition into what they would be known for, and people seemed to write it off because they assume it was just the band testing the waters of progressive rock. That's not true at all, this is a great progressive folk/rock album in it's own right, with a wistful and beautiful caressing feel to all of the songs, with the exception of The Knife, which is the bands first real banger and is still one of their best songs ever. Anthony Phillips really proved himself here as a guitarist, and I think the band still could have achieved most of their success if he never left. This is not a diss to the great Steve Hackett in any way, just saying Anthony was incredible as well. Please listen to this album fellow skeptical Genesis fans, it's still better than the Phil Collins era albums, and it's better than Nursery Cryme too at the very least IMO.

While this is a pre-Hackett precursor to the great Genesis that was to come, it is still an outstanding album in its own right and an excellent representative of the classic prog era. It deserves to be rated higher than it is, both overall as well as relative to some other Genesis albums.

Excellent album which should be a bit higher up in this chart than where it is currently sitting. Excellent production and musicianship. 'The Knife' is a true prog journey which twists and weaves like a snake yet it is a track rarely mentioned in prog reviews.

Many others before me have said this but I'll chime in to - underrated!! Very pretty and melodic, folky with a progressive flavour.

Genesis got better after this album although "The Knife" is the best track on the album.

This album is a gem, each song is perfect and it really makes you understand why Genesis became what it became.
