~~ Remarkable album, especially when you consider that it was their first album and that they were barely out of high school at the time. Much of the album is a sort of soft, folky rock music, almost Easy ListeningI like this late 60s-sounding, psychedelic electric guitar on this album. It goes well with Pete's voice and the drums. At one point between two of the original songs, Tony interpolates a few bars from the second movement of Beethoven's _Patetique_ Sonata. "Am I Very Wrong" might be my favorite track on the album. Pete sings a haunting minor-key melody to the accompaniment of Tony's grand piano and Mike and Ant's accoustic guitars. "Am I Very Wrong" also features the group singing good vocal harmonies in certain sections. On their earlier albums, Genesis sounded like they were developing into as much of a vocal harmony band as they were into a great instrumental band; it's a shame that they did not pursue and develop the vocal harmony thing more than they did. If your not already heavily into Genesis, I would recommend that you start with one of their subsequent albums like Trespass or Nursery Crime or Selling England by the Pound or something like that, but if you already have all those albums and are wondering what they sounded like when their recording carreer started, they I definitely recommend this album.
