4 stars Sidenote: Sweet mother of prog, thank you that I'm back from these dark times of prog music. However, I'll return there, because some work has to be done. And it's not pleasant one (albums after Genesis).

Duke has nice cover(t) art, simplified, but about as simple as in Little Prince, but both promises great experience, when you properly feel into it. Still, this has almost all elements that old Genesis used to have (we all understand which ones, right?). When listening this, I feel like at home from some distant country of unhappy and unpleasant music (80's).

4(+) and let eternal damnation on my soul for doing it. This is not bad album, not even by remote, because honestly, when judging this in compare to some new bands that I've been listening and reviewing lately, this still stands still & firm (even it's "past Genesis time as undisputed prog band"). Long, instrumental passages, great atmosphere (finally, going backwards proved to be useful when I went from 1985 to 1955 and now it helped again), vocals of Collins that sounds even more like Gabriel's (good one, but how the hell are they doing it?), almost pompous structure of some songs and monumental outro.

Simply great
