4 stars Tony's debut solo album A curious Feeling is by far the best album he as produced throughout is entire solo career, and I'm writing this revew now in 2007. This I would have to say is the only album so far to date which as any form of prog music on it, because the rest of his collection certainly don't. However good this album is though, it really amazes and disappoints me how Tony was such a great writer in the Gabriel years with Genesis, how he cannot emmulate and incorperate it into his solo albums. To me the only real writer of prog music out of all the band who consistantly writes prog music is Steve Hackett. And this is totally amazing considering in an interview on a Genesis Video Phil Collins says that Steve Hackett was never much of a writer for the band. Well I can honestly say that Hacketts albums are far way ahead of the crap Collins writes, and they are far well ahead of any other genesis member. I know that Tony loves to write more than perform, but is solo career is lacking a lot of substance. I think were he is going wrong is by trying to perform to much of his albums himself, rather than get in a band of decent musicians to accompany him. A Curious Feeling is a great album, but not a solid album, but without a doubt it's the best album to date that Tony as come up with. My favourite track on the album is Lucky Me.
