4 stars I give this album such a high mark for a few reasons... The first is that the band seems to have sought a slight return to their roots without going completely " retro." In other words, they finally struck a balance between their true nature and the " pop parade" they have become so infamous for the better part of their career.

I also feel that in terms of pure playing ability, that is performance, it is the tightest they have been in quite some time. Noteworthy tracks are many but in my opinion, it all begins (even though it is the final track) with " Fading Lights." If you doubted the band's ability to still produce an epic and masterful progressive rock piece... this should dispell any such notion.

The pluses far outweigh the minuses on this project. It truly is a delicate blend of old school Genesis and new.Maybe they understood it was to be their final album together or they were preparing to go in another exciting direction before Phil's departure. Whatever the case it was one of the finest efforts from the band in many years. Not even " Jesus he knows me" and the ultra silly title track could sully the overall enjoyability of this, the final Genesis album. As the rating criteria would suggest... this is an album that is worth having in any collection. If you haven't heard it. You're missing out.
