2 stars From the word of Tony Banks himself, in this period of time, the band was running out of ideas. The first cut "Mama" was a song from Mike and an improvisation developed by all the members where you can hear Phil being inspired by the band Grandmaster Flash for his scary voice part, It's an effective debut and one of the most popular songs of the band at that time. "Home by the Sea" is the progressive rock track of the album, the most interesting song. "That's All" as some Beatles influence and is a big step back from the 2 songs mentioned above. For the rest album, the band continues to explore some electronic drum effect started with the album "Duke" on songs that are not memorable at all while "Silver Rainbow" has its moments. So it "doesn't get any better"... in the second part of the album just like the band had "Just a job to do..." If it wasn't for the surround sound of Nick Davies and for the extra features of 1 hour of rehearsal footage I wouldn't buy this album. Only for the biggest Genesis fan.
