An incredibly strong piece, I wish they had experimented more with the hard-edged sound of this in future songs, though I guess it is what makes Squonk such a standout track.. Love how explosive it is as an opening on Seconds Out.
Starless - King Crimson (from USA).
The studio version is fantastic but the emotions hit much harder live, with an insanely metal middle section.
Foxtrot, Selling England, Abacab.
The first two are what got me into Genesis, I absolutely adore the pastoral British sound mixed with some hard rocking and surrealism. But after recently giving Genesis's 80's output a listen, I became enthralled with Abacab and how it threw away with the "rules" of Genesis songs, the group even admitting such.
The theme of abstraction is perfectly conveyed through the nonsensical lyrics and jamming nature of some tracks. This aspect of it gives the album a timeless nature, with each new listen granting a new perspective.
