1 stars Mr Painter can't say it any better in his review than I could ever wish to. Well actually the title track is not that bad as there is an interesting chord progression, but it is the only sign that the old Genesis ever once existed. For the rest this is pityful for progheads , full of those horrendous kbs from the early 80's, relatively dull drumming (especially comming from such an excellent drummer). We are not too far from new wave with this album.

I know Genesis had to live with the times and had taken a bold choice to evolve with this album and the number of new fans had given them right, but I cannot help but feel a betrayal ever so much stronger with this album than with all the succeding albums they will make. But somehow if this had been a Wham! album , we might think it is good
