  • My favorite after Foxtrot and The Lamb (which are 2 of my favorite albums ever). A marathon of goosebumps. ♥
  • Favourite!
  • My favourite Genesis album, with Foxtrot a reasonably close second.
  • a great album
  • love it
  • Love the sound of this record.
  • Musical Box is still absolutely haunting even after all these years.
  • What a great album.
