Exhausted by all this conjecture, our hero gets the chance in a lifetime to meet his hero:
Death. Death is wearing a light disguise, he made the outfit himself.
He calls it the "Supernatural Anaesthetist."
Death likes meeting people and wants to travel.

Death approaches Rael with his special canister,
releases a puff, and appears to walk away content into the wall.

Here comes the supernatural anesthetist.
If he wants you to snuff it,
All he has to do is puff it
He's such a fine dancer.

    General CommentAnother great example of Genesis as a "musician's" band rather than a casual listener's. Taken as a stand-alone I understand why Aniland would say "wtf;" however, it's meant to be listened to in continuity with the rest of the "Lamb" album. Further, like some forms of poetry, the words are not as important as the image they invoke (though there is actually a connection here to the events in the story that the album relates).

    General CommentNot actually all that complicated. The title character is Death. That's especially clear if you listen to "Anyway," in which the arrival of Death is awaited.

    General CommentA way under-rated song that actually belongs to the Hackett and Rutherford and Collins who break loose in a pretty stunning little performance revolving around Hackett's guitar solo, but the rhythm guitar is steadily hypnotic and Collins vocalistics are gorgeous and playful, sort of bouncing off of the various melodic and rhythmic gestures, and then it suddenly winds out with another ominous and beautiful run by Hackett. It just has a very interesting and unique feel, intense, layered, yet unhurried and graceful. A gem. I loved Hackett's moments in their albums of this period. I can't judge his chops, but his ideas and sonic approach were special.
