2 stars OK, this is probably not as bad as lots of people say, but it's definitely a come-down after the masterful DUKE. The title song has you thinking this can possibly be DUKE II, and "Keep It Dark", "Me And Sarah Jane" and "Dodo/Lurker" do little to make one refute such a conception. Not even the 100% pop-minded "No Reply At All" can really dissuade you.

The problem is, as others have put it succinctly, the line between Collins' solo career and his work with Genesis began to become blurred here. Best example: "Man On The Corner", which sounds for all the world like an outtake from "Face Value". The less said about the rest of the album (particularly the mortifyingly awful "Who Dunnit?") the better, for the sake of my sanity anyway.
