Certainly Genesis could not be expected to continue producing elaborate Gothic works like 'Supper's ready', nor 'Watcher of the skies', ad infinitum. Instead they began to devise shorter, more self-contained radio friendly songs, while retaining their musical standards. The result is another masterpiece recorded at Island Studios during August 1973, produced by John Burns and Genesis. Undoubtedly this was the best produced album so far, with a markedly improved sound quality that elevated Gabriel's vocals out of the mush of overdubs. Also there was a change in artwork with a cover painting by Betty Swanwick, while Rutherford introduced an electric sitar to his armoury of instruments.
