3 stars Nice album. Big difference with the earlier Gabriel- and Collins-periods. But that doesn't make this album bad. Fanatic prog-lovers don't like it and say Genesis has lost its roots. Well, they're bad listeners. Genesis stands with its head in the clouds of pop, but with its feet in the progressive rock at this album. Just listen to "me and sara jane" or "Dodo/Lurker": completely different than the average weak pop-music of the 1980's. "Like it or not", "Man in the corner" and "Another Record" are typical examples of the new Phil Collins. I think they're better than his later solo-songs.
Eb.Eb. | 3/5 |
