3 stars Mike Rutherford is certainly an important part of the Genesis sound as a bass player and composer. So it was really interesting to let him released a solo work...but the result isn't exactly what I expected...

Mike had a good idea to form a kind of band...but Anthony Philipps just played keyboards... and Noel McCalla is an honest singer but he doesn't possess a voice related to this kind of music.

Bside (on LP version) is supposed to be a long epic.... but every parts are not really musically related to each others...

So, "Smallcreep's day" have some good moments, but it sounds as not completely achieved.

To say the truth, I have the feeling than it could be really better with another singer ...and with more work or time in studio...

3 stars. Good, but non-essential.
