2 stars Duke shows Genesis moving further into their slightly progressive synth-pop phase. Genesis have fully embraced the fact that they write above-par and intelligent pop songs, and are quite able of being a terrific singles-act. The sound here is much more synth heavy than their last album, and eschews more of the progressive elements that were still loosely intact on And Then There Were Three.

The musicianship is still great throughout the album, and the music here is great for what pop music is generally considered to sound like. The only track here that I find to be completely enjoyable is "Duke's Travels" which is a progressive instrumental journey that really brings the album up a few notches.

Overall, this album isn't entirely great, and I would only suggest it for "Duke's Travels". This is the last album that Genesis would record with any noticeable elements of progressive rock.
