Abacab is the third or fourth album after Genesis decided to go pop. The music is a mix of 1980s pop and Tamla Motown's funk and soul. The sound is 1980s and Phil Collins is the dominating factor here of the three remaining members.

Me And Sarah Jane is a half decent song. The rest of this album is very bad and not worthy the paper and plastic it comes with. I can accept pop as long as the melodies are good. In the case of Abacab, there is nothing here than noises that makes me angry. I rather have a singing dog trying to imitate Miles Davis than the music on this album. This album is horror of all horrors and a good candidate for my Christmas turkey.
