1 stars This album has a very poor artistic value! Unlike "Abacab", this record has no reason to be qualified as a pop success. Despite the easiness of the compositions, this stuff is so hard to listen and to really catch the unconvincing airs, that you will be tempted to throw into the litter after the first listen! It is so unprofessional that it should make you laugh. We are extremely far from the "Smallcreep's day" record: actually, the album sounds a bit like "Abacab" or "Duke", except that the Genesis' soul on it is seriously diluted. The poor lead vocals does not help at all. Apart the slightly more decent "Hideaway", the rest will probably not retain your attention. Mike really tried to make some success but he failed!! All the guys play their instruments properly, featuring Stuart Copeland on drums and Daryl Stuermer on guitars, but the quality of the compositions is absolutely not there!

Rating: 1.5 star
