    I utterly disagree. First that the soprano sax is harsh sounding, and that its use in "Cinema Show" isn't right or good. I think it adds an organic flavor to the song that emphasizes the universality of the melody line (especially that one, which is my favorite bit in the whole jam).

    No, no. A clarinet would be much more intrusive if the soprano is harsh to your ears.

    But it STILL sounds horrible. He sounds fine on the flute parts Gabriel played but when he starts his antics blowing on that "soprano" all hell breaks loose.
    Talk about a way to destroy classic Genesis songs, Townsend is the butcher.
