3 stars This was 1979. By this time, singer Phil Collins was just learning about what being a popular singer of pop songs means. The year before, he began his mission to turn what was left of Genesis into a popular pop band. And now...

Product. What a prophetic name.

Sure, Don't Make Waves was written by John Goodsall, and does have some cool bass playing by John Giblin, but it has that singer Phil Collin feeling. And don't get me started on Soho, the worst thing Brand X ever created.

The few tracks with Percy Jones are good. But how can a song with Percy Jones not be? And Phil Collins the drummer makes an appearance, on his own ...And So To F..., not a spectacular composition, but so well played as to be interesting.

Now Algon is more like the Brand X I love. This Robin Lumley piece features the tight playing and virtuosity I hope to hear from this band.Wal To Wal, a duet with Percy Jones and John Giblin is a bass players dream.

But the album just lacks consistency. It's too bad.
