3 stars The first Genesis album that had to do without PG - the stlye remains the same, the singing of the drummer is similar but inferior, of course. The magic is gone and this album is showing how indispensable PG was for the band. This is exactly the same situation as with Season's End by Marillion. If you want to do special, magical music you need a special, a magical man. None of the remaing band (in both cases) has this special kind of magic. So in this case we are left with 8 tracks, none of which is overwhelming:

****= Dance on a Volcano; Entangled; Robbery...; Ripples ***= Mad Man Moon; Trick of the Tail **= Squonk, Los Endos. All in all: 26 stars divided by 8 songs = 3,25 stars.
