"The Musical Box reproduces, in a very fair way, what Genesis was doing, I saw them in Bristol with my children so that they could see what their father was doing at the time" - Peter Gabriel
"This is not a tribute band. They focused on a specific period and they faithfully reconstruct it as a theatrical work" - Phil Collins
"I could not imagine a better tribute to anyone, they managed to capture the sound, but also to virtually look like us, it seems like nothing is too difficult for them" - Steve Hackett
"In fact, it was better than the original, it was excellent, fantastic" - Mike Rutherford
