A lot boring. A stereotype 70:s album. Grandiose arrangements, psychedelic ingredients and choirsinging.

If it wasn't because of the overstayed Battle of epping forest and the eccentric theatrical Peter Gabriel vocals (they fit perfectly in 'The Lamb', but here they feel a bit too English for my taste), this would be the best Genesis album without a doubt.
Firth of Fifth and The Cinema Show are incredible

Considered by many fans to be the best Genesis album. The start of Dancing with the Moonlit Knight with Gabriel's accapella is incredible.

This is a very English sounding album, Charterhouse Public School English, not Red Bus, Trafalgar Square Pigeons, Bacon and Egg Fry Up English! I love the openeing words and the almost ethereal quality to parts of this album. 'I Know What I Like in Your Wardrobe', 'Firth of Fourth', 'Battle of Epping Forest' and 'The Cinema Show' are all personal Genesis all time favourites.

So English, they sound so dainty and soft at first but you soon realise how monstrous they are on their respective instruments when things like the Cinema Show or Firth of Fifth come along. Great stuff.
