"If you love early Genesis, chances are you'll appreciate Citizen Cain. Excellent musicianship, extended arrangements, and serendipitous song structure make for intriguing listening. Lead singer Cyrus is a dead ringer for Peter Gabriel, and his lyrics are inventive and interesting. Another plus: whereas Gabriel-era Genesis albums sound as if they were recorded at the bottom of a muddy pond, the engineering here is tight and crystal clear. Great 70s-style progressive rock."
There is a difference.

"I think to blatantly dismiss these guys and "stick to yer Genesis and Marillion" is very narrow minded indeed. Going back to the early days of Genesis when they released "The Silent Sun".....even then they would have had some cash to get it together and record a decent record. But they never, most of the late 60's, early 70's Genesis material is cringingly rubbish. I agree with Marillion, The "Script"....for a debut attempt, is a progressive rock legend. And as with Citizen Cain, all with regular jobs, no cash flow, jamming in a Musselburgh flat before raising the cash to get to a half decent studio, they manage to release "Serpents in Camouflage!" I think praise where praise is due. This is an amazing album. An album that makes me wish I could write lyrics like Cyrus Scott, and play keyboards like Stuart Bell. This debut album is enough to make ANY musician/ songwriter proud. LIKE I SAID, in the "Somewhere but Yesterday" review, if only this music was sought after, money would become readily available to these guys through huge record sales, as it did with Gabriel/ Collins/ Fish etc etc. Keep it up lads. The new CD, "Playing Dead" is also a stomper. Brilliant."
