2 stars So this is where my favorite prog band went... down the toilet and never coming up for air. Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, this is where prog civilization as we know it ended. The previous two albums without Steve Hackett were at least kind of proggy, but this is when blockheads started saying Genesis is an 80's pop band, and get me really mad. This is the end of Genesis. True, Invisible Touch and We Can't Dance were worse, but when I went to my local record store to buy a Genesis album, not expecting pop music, listening to this in my bedroom was the biggest disappointment ever. True the title track is decent, and contains some other good pop music, but this is hardly even Genesis. They almost should have renamed the band.

In conclusion, die hard Gabriel-era Genesis fans will be sorely dissapointed, and so will anyone else expecting prog from a prog band. If you can shake the image that these are the guys who made Supper's Ready, you might be a little happy with it, but for everyone else, walk right past this.
