2 stars This CD is from the same caliber of its predecessor three years before : not bad but definitely not great. Therefore, the same rating : 2 stars. The poppy opener and title track is pleasant (but might be quite disturbing for old fans). Next song "Tonight ..." is quite long, toooooooooo long. it could have been cut after 4 minutes. It lacks in harmony and feeling (like "Home by the Sea"). "Land of Confusion" is an OK poppy track but "Anything She Does" is really bad and quite dispensable. "Domino" - the longest track - is the best song of this CD : it has melody, rythm changes and a nice middle section. One of the (too) few track since ages that could remind me of the "old" era. "In Too Deep" and "Throwing It All Away" are nice and romantic ballads. An instrumental piece closes the CD : but "The Brazilian" is nothing comparable to "Los Endos" or even "Duke's End". Globally, this CD is not really necessary in your discography. But I guess that, as myself, lots of fans did purchase it to complete their Genesis catalogue. It will be their most succesful album in terms of sales. For the fourth time in a row, Genesis will hit the number one spot in the UK chart. It will reach Nr. three in the US. What is even more impressive is the quantity of singles they will issue from this album : seven ! The most sucessful one will be "Invisible Touch / The Last Domino : Nr. 1 in the US. Generally, all of them will perform very well in the US : Throwing It All Away/Do The Neurotic (Nr. 4), Land Of Confusion/Fedding The Fire (Nr. 4), Tonight Tonight Tonight/In The Glow Of The Nnight (Nr. 3), In Too Deep/I'd Rather Be With You (Nr. 3). If the last two didn't chart in the States, it is because they were only released in the UK (the only difference being the B-side) : In Too Deep/Do The Neurotic (Nr. 19) and "Throwing It All Away/I'd Rather Be With You (Nr. 22). Still two stars for me.
