2 stars Firstly, Behind the Lines is really popish (though a bit artsy) song in wich we hear the worst elements of the two albums before it. The song clearly want to appeal to most of the population and is very comercial. Duchess has got a very long intro witch was completely useless and after it, a popish nearly rocking song appears. Not really good to me and really unproggy. I'm certain a lot of people like it but it's simply not it for me. I aggree to say that Phil Collins has got a great voice but he is not a leader. I could not even finish the album skipping several songs because they were really unproggy wich led me to the last two tracks wich were seeming prog to me because together they formed a ten minutes suite. It's nearly good prog but not quite it.

Don't try this album thinking it's prog or listen to the end. That's my advice.
