Quintessential music comes to life

This album is timeless, and this remake is outstanding. More subtleties of these talented geniuses come to light in this epic that should be counted in the greatest albums of all time. This is perhaps the last collective work of the Genesis members before they began to seek their individual paths, and accordingly it brings all of their extraordinary musicianship together!

A beauty of an album

Gabriel-era Genesis... oh, the nostalgia. If there's a cultural zenith that reaches beyond recordings like this, then I've yet to find it. Nothing, and absolutely nothing entertains quite like Gabriel and company did on these earlier forays into their undeniably unique sound. Tighter musically after several albums under their belt, Genesis is able to do here what some groups struggle an entire career to produce consistently: a polished prog rock approach, with a sincerity and origianlity that make the listener feel..."comfortable" is really the best way to describe it. Each track generates a specific feeling within the observer, a great example being the classic "Firth of Fifth". Also contained here is the delightful "I Know Wht I Like (In Your Wardrobe)", arguably one of the most "fun" early Genesis tracks. A great album with the ranks of "Nursery Cryme" and "Foxtrot", "Selling England by the Pound" is a treasure cache of prog rock pleasures, with the musical prowess of one of the genre's most endearing and timeless bands backing it up.
