5 stars 4.5 STARS

Almost perfect, Genesis did it again. Gabriel gone, and now Hackett too, Genesis continues whit another great album. Of course we could like more guitar touches, but And then there were three can transmits a particular atmosphere. A bit dark, a bit nostalgic, just great. The progressive elements are still there over all the album, except their first big hit Follow you follow me, in which Banks even puts some prog touch with the solo.

The best tracks.

Down and out: Rutherford starts the road of the hard riffs since this track. Very powerful, its only problem is that might be longer. The keyboard solos are fantastic, as the drum job by Collins.

Burning Rope: Maybe the best of the album. Another Banks's epic with a superb keyboard introduction and an stunning guitar solo. Great lyrics.

Deep in the motherlode: A typical Rutherford track, with this great wall of sounds. The guitar riff and the keyboard mattress brings a really good moment. Collins stands out in the voices.

Say it's all right Joe: Written by Rutherford, this track mutates from a quiet verse to a strong chorus supported over a superb keyboard back line.

The lady lies: Another prog track from Banks, with really good instrumental parts.

The ballads:

The album has some ballads wich are not strictly pop, and they are great tracks, like Undertow (Banks), Snowbound (Rutherford) and Many too many (Banks). The three has really strong chorus.

The rest:

Ballad of Big and Scenes from a night dream are prog pop tracks, not in the same level than the ones before, but good.

Follow you follow me: The pop one and the first big hit of Genesis. As a pop track is original and not bad.

Mainly progressive is not Wind and Wuthering but is great. So not FIVE STARS but more than FOUR STARS.
