Well my random music review playlist came up with this classic. This is the double album that many bands writing double albums aspire to be. This, the inspiration to Kevin Gilbert’s Shaming of the True and many others, is full of wonderful music. Brian Eno contributes to one of the many highlights The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging. The lyrics completely written by Peter this album are sometime less cohesive than I would like but the wonderful songwriting make it a classic. They toured the entire double album in America prior to the release to a perplexed genesis fan base. Fans left the tour bewildered but the love for this album grew and grew for all these years. Selling England by the Pound is my favorite but this double album is great. Some people think the album would have been better as a single album but I’ll take it all except for the final song It
