3 stars Genesis retreat from their most commercial sound and objectives to embrace a more natural sound suitable to their age. Although the album is long, Genesis have enough to say, fortunately. Even though you spot two compositions over 10 minutes, don't get fooled - this is a primarily pop album with some prog textures at times and a vaguely progressive keyboard solo in the last track. Pop tracks are excellent (to the commercially-driven audience), Collins still has a great voice. Banks showcases tasty keyboards but stays restrained with playing. Even when he stays in the forefront, it's more about atmosphere than past explorations. There are one of two weaker songs but overall, I think that majority of Genesis fans were positively surprised after their1986's more outdated effort.
