3 stars Genesis was already pretty far from their prog heydays (Gabriel era), so this album isn't really progressive at all. It's a pop record/Phil Collins solo work. If you like Phil Collins, you'll for certain like this album. If you're a nothing but Gabriel era Genesis fan, then you more than likely will not be fond of this album. The albums songs are ALL listenable, most of them are actually really pretty good. I like the entire record. This was the first Genesis album I ever heard, so maybe I attach a little more weight to it than is worthy, but nothing I change about that now, I like this album. Just for the record, I do love Gabriel era Genesis, much more than Duke and so on....But this isn't bad music at all. I very rarely define music/songs as "catchy", but it fits here. This is actually a great record for the car, great driving music. My favorite song has always been It's Gonna Get Better, the last track. From the first time I heard it, I loved the opening bass line and then throughout, very solid, lyrics are kind of cheesy but it's not a big deal.

Could they have put less thought into the cover art?
