3 stars I can see that this album probably deserves no more than 2 stars on a "Prog-rock scale", but if you would just rate it for the (pop)music itself I guess it would be worthy 3 stars minimum.

There's probably two kind of "Genesis" fans. First you have the ones who got to know Genesis from the start in the PG-era and of course they didn't like to see Genesis turning into a commercial vehicle with songs rating high in the pop charts. Then you also have the "other kind" of people, who got to know Genesis during the eighties (like myself) and at the time found albums like Genesis , Invisible Touch and We Can't Dance quite amusing. I actually owned those albums before I got into Prog after which, of course, I also bought their older albums.

After getting to know "the old" Genesis, I can see why the albums mentioned above are rated very low on PA. Nevertheless I personally think all of the tracks on Invisible Touch are pretty good pop songs. I must admit I almost do not listen to this album anymore from the moment I got into Prog, still I would rate it quite a bit higher than most of my colleague reviewers.
