Genesis - Abacab CD (album) cover

3 stars A very obvious attempt to change their sound - which isn't a bad thing, again, like 'Duke', very live sounding. The title track is incredibly simple, only 3 chords for the main bit and a key change, just banged out in 4/4 time, yet still amazingly enjoyable and Keep it Dark is just one riff! In contrast Me and Sarah Jane has all the signature Genesis flavours and Dodo/Lurker is a nod the 70's stuff. The rest is either silly (Who Dunnit?) or poppy. For these reasons I think this album is, if not consistent, a fairly intriguing listen.
