What in gods name am I listening to, seriously? So I just started to get into Genesis and I started out with a Trick of the Tail, which is utterly fantastic. I also am exploring the Gabriel era as well, but its my explorations which lead me to Invisible touch, the multi-platinum super popular Genesis album, figuring that if so many people bought this thing that it had to be good right? Well, the only conclusion that I can come to is that people as a whole, are really, really stupid. Why do the crappiest albums always sell the most copies? I will never understand this. Sadly, many of the great prog bands of the 70's got violated by the music theory of the 80's and metamorphosed into something boring, unrecognizable and bland, such as what happened to Yes and Genesis. Other bands metamorphosed into something new and interesting such as with King Crimson and Rush, but whatever. Well, on second thought, even the mighty King Crimson went off the rails after Discipline as did Rush after Power Windows, so I guess the Eighties eventually caught up with every Prog Band in some way or another. This album is really god awful, lifeless and without any soul. Its like the soundtrack to care-bares movie or something a toddler would be amused by. Even Land of Confusion which I enjoyed for many years now, for some reason sounds WORSE when I listen to it within the context of the album, which is troubling.

Boring and uninspired album art also. In the end, Invisible Touch is an appropriate title as my ears are being violated by the invisible touch of this album.

I will never listen to this album again. As a matter of fact I just put back on A Trick of the Tail as I am writing this review.
