4 stars When i heard (back in 1996), that Genesis are doing a new record without Collins, i was very happy, a couple of days later i watched the first audience on MTV or VH1 and it sounds good. Wilson was no Gabriel and no Collins, right, but his voice seemed to be right one for most of the Gabriel era and even some newer stuff. Compared to their last, sometimes really weak but successfull, recordings, CAS was a big step ahead. Sad for me that Banks & Rutherford decieded to stop further recordings with Wilson. It would have been good if Wilson has the chance to put some of his own songs in the G thing, on CAS he only co- wrote the lyrics for 3 songs CAS is no really prog, although some songs even have prog elements within, it's a little dark but athmopheric album, even the "hit" songs for radio are sounding a little dark. In my opinion it's the best G album since Duke!
