4 stars One of Gabriel`s most accessible albums. "Moribund the Burgermeister" is the most close song to the old GENESIS, with theatrical vocals. "Solsbury Hill" is one of the best songs in this album. "Modern Love" is a "rocker". The humorous "Excuse Me" has Tony Levin playing a Tuba solo! "Humdrum" is the best song in this album, and is one of my favourite songs from Gabriel as soloist. Very good arrangements in this song, with maybe Fripp on classical guitar (!) and great keyboards. In this song, Gabriel sang with emotion. As a soloist, Gabriel started to be more himself almost all of the time, and not always acting as a character in a weird story, as he was in GENESIS. This is the reason why I prefer Gabriel as soloist than as a member of GENESIS: he sounds more "authentic" here. "Down the Dolce Vita" is "explosive", with an orchestral arrangement. "Here comes the Flood" has some flutes and recorders played by Gabriel, and he sounds "authentic" in this song too, singing with feeling.A very good album. "Slowburn" and "Waiting for the Big One" are good songs too, but they are less interesting for me than the rest of the songs of this album.
