4 stars There is actually nothing wrong with this album. Great keyboard based songs and instrumentals. You can certainly hear the origins of this music: Genesis. But then something is missing. Of course the singing is far from Gabriel or even Collins. Even forgetting the singing there is a feeling that these are leftovers from the Lamb. Similiar in a way but do not quite reach the standards... Some songs like the Lie sound like Elton John, which is not bad either, but I was not expecting pop songs from mr. Banks.

This recording gets better as you listen it several times. If you get over the Genesis replica feeling you can find some great moments here. For those who didn't grow up drinking early Genesis recordings instead of mothers milk this might be a stand alone masterpiece but for me it will always stay in the shadow of the greatest band ever. I am struggling between 3 and 4 stars and just because this is the first solo work of an original Genesis member I must give it a 4 because this certainly is an Excellent addition to any prog music collection.
