3 stars Hat-trick

The third UK single from the "Invisible touch" album was a pretty decent song. Having infiltrated the top 20 with both the previous tracks, they achieved their first hat-trick from the same album with this release. "Land of confusion" did at least have some character to it, with a melodic chorus and a punchy rhythm. It managed to avoid most of the soul and funk influences which plagued the band around this time too, with only some unnecessary "woah-ohs" to remind you that this was written with chart success in mind.

The B side was another non-album track called "Feeding the fire". This song has (in relative terms for this era of Genesis) something of a structure to it, with a passing resemblance to tracks like "Driving the last spike" from "We can't dance". Collins actually gives a creditable vocal performance here, the track having an underlying power sadly lacking from their work around this time. Tony Banks even manages to slip in a decent if brief instrumental passage.

The 12" single release included an extended version of the title track.
