Prog Reviewer
2 stars The first half of GENESIS actually is a fair collection of art-pop tunes with only ''That's All'' being lame. The two ''Home By the Sea'' parts are interesting pop based tunes, but ''Second Home By the Sea'' is a thing of pop beauty as it actually is quite mesmerizing despite the tacky sounding synths of the 80's. Reminds of unused music from the Sonic the Hedgehog games of the mid 90's. ''Mama'' is strangely demented yet the climbing factor helps make it enjoyable despite Phil's near-wretched vocals at the end.

But, there's another half to the album, and it's all forgettable pop music. ''It's Gonna Get Better'' might be the most ironic track name as the album never did that, nor will the follow-up INVISIBLE TOUCH. Lame ballads and cheap 80's pop tunes that sound like filler encompass this half. Fails to capitalise on what could've been a decent artsy pop album with a little bit of prog thrown in.

Sinusoid | 2/5 |
