Prog Reviewer
1 stars Abacab is shows even more of a synth-heavy pop sound for Genesis. The songwriting here isn't quite as good as it was on the two previous albums, and seems to me like a mess. The synths on this album for the most part sound very abrasive and dramatic for their own good. There are a couple of songs on this album that seem like attempts to appeal to the fans of Genesis' progressive rock work - the title track and "Dodo/Lurker". These two songs are indeed mildly progressive, but still seem more like longer-than-average pop songs. Those two songs by themselves are at least worth a listen for the purpose of deciding if you like this era of Genesis, but this album isn't recommended at all.
