2 stars This album isnt that bad as most people here says, but i shurely understand what they mean, the vocals are so-so (sometimes it sounds abit like peter gabriel) but i think rutherford does a decent job at the vocals. The songs are mostly very poppy and /or soft... some good songs are here, who is fooling who should be on genesis (83) Halfway there sounds also like a genesis outtake (duke era) The tiltle track is actually very funny and nice (I remember hearing it the first time, i laughed my ass off., mike sounds so fucked up on this one, in a good wAy)

But there are also crappy stuff on here, like Couldn't Get Arrested is sinking like a rock, the fm radio song Maxine sounds also like a bad genesis song from invisible touch. A Day To Remember sounds like a song that could be used in a film like "crocodile dundee" or any other bad movie from the early 80`s.

Hideaway is a nice enough song, here rutherford sings very good, but the songs is actually very 50/50 (good orchestration, terrible refrain)

If you liked Smallcreeps Day, i think youll find atleast 2 good songs on here.
