3 stars Probably Genesis last really progressive album. I have to admit I like the Collins era pop period. ?At least it was fine, well done, prog influenced pop music. And Duke is where this transitional period is more evident, even more than on the patchy ...And Then We Were Three. Phil Collins was steppin in as a main songwriter in stuff like Misunderstanding (fine tune) and Please Donīt Ask. There are some great stuff here like Duchess, Behind The Lines and, most of all, the Dukeīs suite at the end. Ok, there is also Turn It On Again, a very repetitive song that I never liked and I canīt really stand hearing it even today, but those weak moments are few.

Duke may have divided fans, but I still think itīs a fine album if you take in consideration the time it was released and the general confusing state of the music scene by then. The simple fact that it is still enjoyable today speaks for itself. So it may not be Genesis finest hour in their discography, but it is good anyway. Three stars.
