3 stars A fun, classic bit of poppish art-rock from a terrific singer/songwriter who-- in my opinion-- records music here that is with very few exceptions better than anything from Genesis.

Gabriel's songs here are all catchy, filled with melodic hooks and thanks in part to his excellent backing band, contain many outstanding instrumental moments as well. Many different styles and moods are present, from straight-ahead pop sing-a-longs, lazy- tempo blues, and big, sweeping epics complete with symphonic flair. Gabriel delivers more memorable vocals here than on any of his Genesis albums and really seems to be more in his element.

A solid, fun listen which will connect to some more than others, but is deservedly respected as one of this great artist's gems.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
