1 stars This is IMO the worst Genesis album of all times (including "From Genesis to Revelation"). With the exception of the title track, "Abacab" there is really nothing interesting here. I only give my comments about this album in my effort to cover all the Genesis production. But I suffered a lot in doing so. Like I suffered with "Big generator", "Union" and "Talk" from Yes. At least Genesis will only produce one crappy album ! Being an early fan (since 1974), it is really a pity to hear such a production. How is it possible to go that low ? I have no clue. But apparently, millions of people do think differently since this album sold like hell (Nr. one in the UK - the second in a row and Nr. seven in the US), and from then on the "Genesis Machine" was able to fill stadiums during their tours while before only small concert halls were taken into consideration with the remarkable exception of Belgium where they filled Forest National (7,000 people) as early as 1974 for the "Selling" tour. I really cannot give more than one star for this. Sorry guys.
