3 stars And then there were two? Indeed, remaining BANKS and RUTHERFORD have enlisted a new vocalist in RAY WILSON. This man is certainly not a bad singer but his gravelly voice does not exactly enhance the GENESIS sound. This being said, I might very well have considered buying "Calling All Stations" is even if I didn't know it was a G album. There are some fine moments on it, among which "The Dividing Line" ranks as my personal favourite - a tight progger where NIR ZIDKYAHU's drum play manages to eclipse any old memories of PHIL COLLINS. Although some tracks such as"Calling All Stations" and "Congo" have TONY BANKS' signature all over them, most sound a little forced. Even the last track, "One Man's Fool" reminds me of a less successful version of "Fading Lights" (ah, just can't avoid those comparisons...). Many tracks sound a bit stuffed up, making the album a little hard to digest at times. By no means is this a bad album; I do pick it up every so often, especially when I'm in need of a quick TONY BANKS fix.
