2 stars Genesis had manged to hold on for one album after Steve Hackett left. ...And Then There Were Three was a good album, but Duke showed trouble on the horizon. Then Abacab came out and it was pronounced that the king of prog was dead. The positive sales of the last two poppier albums prompted a change in musical direction. The Collins-led trio all but abandoned their prog roots and sold out. Now this album isn't as atrocious as Invisible Touch or We Can't Dance, and it's even a bit better than Duke. The title track retains a portion of their prog flavors and there is some jazz on it and No Reply at All. The rest of the album, however, is filled with short, meaningless songs.

Fans of Genesis should really stop with Wind and Wuthering or maybe ...And Then There Were Three. Only die-hards should collect this, since this is mediocre at best, and it only gets worse form here.
