Prog Reviewer
2 stars This album and other albums by Mike and the Mechanics (and some from Tony Banks) show that Phil Collins`wasn`t the only member of Genesis who liked to play pop commercial music. So Collins wasn`t the only "guilty" person in Genesis for their more commercial albums ("Abacab", "Genesis", "Invisible Touch"). The best song in this album is "Hideaway", a ballad with 12 string acoustic guitars, dums, bass and a very good orchestral arrangement. This is a very good song. The other songs are pop rock, with Rutherford`s distorted guitars (Daryl Stuemer also appears in this album) as he played in the "Abacab" and "Genesis" albums. Rutherford sings in tune, but he is not a good singer. "Hideaway" is so good that one forgives Rutherford`s vocals. "Maxine" was played in the FM Radio (at least in my country) and it is also good. The rest of the songs are more or less good, average pop rock/arena rock of the eighties. Stewart Copeland plays drums, doing a good job.
