From leMonk
Irresistibly beautiful song. The fact that Gabriel's lyrics once again raise questions is not really affecting the beauty of the song. This is Genesis at its best. Less prog rock, more timeless music.

From neilgee
This is the best track of the Genesis with Peter Gabriel era, for me. It starts slowly but how it builds and builds until it is flying; until it takes on a force that leaves the rest of the album behind - and great lyrics like Pal says.

this song contains an introductory verse that sounds out-of-place with the rest of the song, but it carries the narrative through well. When Tony's synth-piano arrives, the song begins to take off. This is our hero sinking into the abyss. "a salamander scurries into flame to be destroyed. / imaginary creatures are trapped at birth on celluloid" as "the crawlers cover the floor in a red, ochre corridor. / for my second sight of people, they've more lifeblood than before" "like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree, they are pulled up by the magnet, believing they're free". i love the rolling synth-piano. Awesome song. More: "the porcelain mannequin with shattered skin fears attack / the eager pack lift up their pitchers -- they carry all they lack. / the liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack, / and the tickler takes his stickleback." Love this one.
