I agree, very underrated. The instrumental section is very clever, because it is in 7/8 time, an unusual signature, yet it flows beautifully, even if parts are a bit twiddly-synthesizer, as was the vogue at the time. Also a reminder of what a great drummer Phil Collins could be before he set his course for the middle of the road.

One of the most fantastic progressive rock songs of the 1970's, a very underrated Genesis song, should be way into the top-10 in my opinion. The instrumental section at the end is mesmerizing...
