3 stars The "Shapes" album as some fans call it (because of the front cover artwork) is a very strong one. Genesis' 80's evolution was in full swing here, opening with the powerful "Mama". The drum machine creates a great atmosphere with some eerie keyboard sounds and very powerful vocals. It's an odd one for some fans being about a young boy's obsession with a prostitute but I've always enjoyed it. This was something very fresh and startling, paving a new way for the group's songwriting. This sophisticated music still sounds pretty good today. "That's All", "Home by the Sea" and "Taking It All Too Hard" are further favourites. Check it out. It's clever and creative as a lot of 80's music actually was if found in the right places. A well deserved three and a half stars.
