5 stars It is strange to see such a low rating for this wonderful album... In my opinion this first solo album of Peter is his best solo work. The best thing about this album is that there is no weak track here and stylistically the album is very diverse. The album starts with "Moribund The Burgermeister" which has some Genesis sound (esp. from "TLLDOB") - a great opener. Everybody knows "Solisbury Hill". Though being a typical pop-song, it's a high quality track which I love listening to. "Modern Love" and "Slowburn" are good guitar tracks with nice transitions and harmonies. "Waiting For The Big One" has lots of blues which we never knew in Genesis. Personally I love blues and REALLY ENJOY THIS TRACK. "Here Comes The Flood". At first I did not like this track. But after a couple of listenings I realized that this might be the most beautiful rock-ballad ever written. Wonderful song and wonderful ending for an album. To sum it up: a very good rock album. Although it does not have lot of prog elements it's very enjoyable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
