4 stars A very good album.

The title track alone is worth the price of a CD. The remastered CD version really makes it sound good. I can't understand all those people who think progrock means over long songs and overblown stage shows with grown men wearing flowers. Nothing against the Gabriel stuff, but this album has some really interesting and progressive stuff on it (well Who Dunnit maybe not...).

Good songs: Abacab; No reply at all; Me and Sarah Jane; Keep it dark; Dodo.

Not so good songs: Who dunnit? Another record.

The rest is listenable but nothing special. Abacab is one of the best albums of the Collins era, and this band should come back. There must be a million genesis fans still alive and hoping to hear these songs again. And maybe an album of new ones!...nah.
