2 stars 2.9999 stars really ....but not three. This album is the proof ( if needed any) that Rutherford could write some good stuff , as opposed to that Special Way crap on Wutherings. The stuff on this album is sometimes good ,sometimes correct but also sometimes bad. Funny thing is that the library CD copy has got the side reversed compared to here. The overall tone of the album is a bit like Bank's Curious Feeling (but less put-me-to-sleep) and sounds a lot like Duke era material (which is of course normal given the dates of releases). The vocals are not very nice and some of the numbers (time and Time Again) are annoying especially on the non-suite side. As for the suite , it is easy to see that Rutherford was a full third of then Genesis . Duke (take away Misunderstanding and Turn It On again ) had some good stuff ( much better than ATTWT ) that still hinted to the better days but was also the last correct album ( along the first side of the Mama album where the Two Home By The Sea ). I would've loved to hear how that suite might have turned out on Duke with Banks's input." Avec des "Si" , on met Paris en bouteille".
