1 stars Throwing It All Away was another in a string of pop songs released by Genesis in 1986 on 45 rpm singles. Throwing It All Away was basically a pop rock ballad, no better and probably worst than previous ballads the band wrote going back to the Duke album. No signs of anything relating to progressive rock can be found here.

The B side was a song called Do the Neurotic which is an energetic instrumental that is probably better than most of the stuff found on the Invisible Touch album. It found its way onto the Archive 2 box set, so really, there's no need to seek out this single unless you are a completionist. Otherwise, this is one single worth throwing away.
