"Genesis, Nursery Cryme - 180 Gram"

Classic Original Master 1st Generation 180 Gram Pressing, featuring Peter Gabriel "Out of Print, Last Copies". "The Musical Box" "For Absent Friends" "The Return of the Giant Hogweed" "Seven Stones" "Harold the Barrel" "Harlequin" "The Fountain of Salmacis" Enter Phil Collins and Steve Hackett for a set that elipsed its predecessor (seventies TRESPASS) in technical ability. The 10-minute opener "The Music Box" benefiting from jazz influenced playing was a far cry from the delicate folk rock tapestries and chiming 12-string guitars of its predecessor. The infusion of a semi-classical structural sensibility had become more prevelant. Fragile ballads are at a minimum replaced by driving classic rock epics full with heavy guitar, baselines, and sweeping mellotrone. The sound occasionally recalls the refined but uncompromising instrumental attack of the Nice (particularly in Tony Banks/Keith Emerson-ish blast of organ bravura). The interlocking guitar and folky moments are still present, however, providing contrast to NURSERY CRYME's bolder moments. The group's sophisticated compositional style and Peter Gabriel's eccenric lyrics are at their height on "The Return Of The Giant Hogweed", "The Fountain Of Slamacis" and "The Music Box".
