Tonbridge Man
3 stars When you consider this album you should remember we are talking about 1986 and it is fair to say the 1986 to 1988 period was not exactly a vintage time for mainstream rock (unless you were a fan of U2 and the Smiths) before 1989 saw something of a revival which picked up during the 1990's.

In that context I don't thing this is as bad an album as some reviewers have made out. The opening title track is pappy but tonight tonight tonight picks things up with a sinister intro and interesting progression although it is slightly spoilt by the repetitive central hook. Land of confusion is a great song and one of my favourite Genesis tracks. In too deep might as well be a Phil Collins solo effort but is a pleasant enough pop song.

Side 2 opens with Anything she does which has a lively intro but subsides into an annoying albeit catchy hook. Domino parts 1 and 2 returns to a more classical Genesis structure and is quite reasonable although not their best. Throwing it all away is more MOR Genesis , pleasant but forgettable. The Brazilian ends matters and again harks back to the instrumentals of earlier albums.

It is an album I still occasionally play today and so on that basis merits 3 stars.

Tonbridge Man | 3/5 |
