3 stars This is the big 80's hit for Genesis. It's not bad really. They are still quite inventive, even if within an '80's pop' realm. The title track 'Invisible Touch' and 'In too deep' are very catchy, 'Tonight Tonight Tonight' and 'The Last Domino' are longer, more well-thought out tracks with plenty of interesting synthesiser tones and little additions on the side here and there to keep things interesting. The tracks 'Land of confusion' and 'Anything she does are fairly good song, but more 'pop' sounding.

The reason I took two stars off the rating is a) I've never really cared for the last two songs. 'Throwing it all away' starts off slowly, and when Phil Collins starts going 'Throwing it all away' you realise that's all there is to the song, it's disappointing. Okay 'The Brazilian' is not bad but I think they have done better things in the instrumental department than this. The other star went because b) this album doesn't really give a full flavour of Genesis. This is catchy pop music done well and in an inventive way, but Genesis, even in the 80's, can give you so much more.

Overall, this is a competent release that showed was Genesis still making good music, but wasn't their most satisfying release.
