3 stars Don't believe what anyone else says. Invisible Touch is an excellent album. One of the all- time great pop albums. The number of hit singles is a testament to that. But these are not ordinary pop songs. These are masterful pop songs performed with style.

There are also some great proggish songs like Domino (10:45), the second half of Tonight, Tonight, Tonight (8:54) and The Brazilian.

From the best of prog to the best of pop. Who else has mastered two genres with such critical and commercial acclaim (and such distain!)?

But do the two genres belong together? I enjoy listening to this album, and it is one of the few Genesis albums that I can play in front of others rather than in secret!

There are no weak songs and it makes a great listen. Just relax and enjoy some great pop songs coupled with some good prog. Your girlfriend will appreciate it!

And it can't be all that bad if Invisible Touch acts as an introduction to the delights of early Genesis? Can it?

This is essential in any collection. 5 stars (but file under 'Pop' rather than 'prog').

ProgArchive rating: 3 stars.
