Well .. to play out.

I do not believe that Genesis Abacab created. I've always been a staunch defender of its early pop them, but this time I'm on the side of hundreds of people who condemn this album! The Allmusic Abacab gave a rating of four and a half stars of five, while for tresspass they give meager two stars! How could this happen? Is unacceptable.

I really think after Duke the band would continue to do a good material Crossover (yes, because they never laid aside their progressive side), but there is a single progressive element of Abacab. Heck, the other albums of this period had at least 10 minutes up songs (Home By The Sea, Domino), even the infamous Invisible Touch! But here? Nothing! The only good thing here is the song Keep It Dark, which is a nice pop. But the rest? Tsk, tsk ... What a disappointment!

(Oh yeah, and another thing: what was the "brilliant mind" who created the cover of this album? I think even my little sister can do better!)
