5 stars Moribund: the lyrics wind around you, while a musical theme and structure can't help but brings you more of what Garbiel fans have come to expect. Solsbury: A bright light of hope and happiness throbs along in this tune. I was afraid leaving Genesis would spoil the musical spell Peter can cast with his words. No, it's time to look deeper into who Peter Gabriel really is. A musically and lyrically talented experimentalist. Modern: How true, how modern love can be a strain. Is it worth it? Sit back and go to the next level.What's to take issue with, the musicianship of this lineup? Music with vision! Excuse ME: just a bit a fun fellas! I'm not the man I used to be either. Who says a banjo doesn't belong in progressive's no holds barred....eclectic! Humdrum: Nothing's gone from the emotional development of what PG has been developing all along with Genesis. The acoustic guitar shades are like a soft musical background. Slowburn: Excitement! The guitar arrangement is the locgical extension of many themes from Genesis. Yet it, isn't afraid to take chances in other directions too. Waiting for the big one: articulate, willing to borrow styles that suit the sentiment of this tune. Down the Dolce Vita: And why not? The arrangement for the electric guitar and brass section are great. Here comes the flood: the future direction progressive rock should take was never better and more clearly pointed out here. Change is hard to take, but the very best music evolves, and moves on. Here tune close to the heart of any progressive rock fan. A pure pleasure to listen to. I was glad Peter left Genesis. There was no place else to go if you want to keep the creative flame going without going a bit stale.
