2 stars Side A of this release is decent enough with the two hits "Mama" and "That's All". Also there's "Home By the Sea" where especially the second part is quite nice. It will not stand a comparison with GENESIS 70s grandeur though.

Side B, on the other hand, is forgettable, starting with the awful "Illegal Alien". The rest of the tracks may be OK but far from the best GENESIS have done (VERY far from the best). The ending track, "It's Gonna Get Better" sounds a bit like their later "Throwing It All Away" and that's what this album is if you're not a complete fan, a throwaway. It's NOT gonna get better.

Frasse | 2/5 |
