3 stars Tony Banks tries to find his way to solo success of fellow current Genesis bandmates Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford instead of former mates Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, and Ant Phillips. Initially, the pair follow the latter trio with prog albums as their initial releases with very good results but modest sales. After two PC pop rock albums, both Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks have a go at it. Each make the same mistake that both of them should have learned from their core job with Genesis; neither is a lead singer.

While Banks is a better singer than Rutherford, that is not exactly a ringing endorsement. The songs themselves are not horrible, on the whole they are just not very memorable. He writes for is limited singing range, which means there is not much variation here. There are a handful of very good songs and nothing to make you cringe. No real prog on this CD, a light 3 stars might be generous but I played it often when it was released.
