2 stars Except for Guide Vocal, Turn It on Again (which is a really catchy pop song), Duke's Travels, Duke's End and the beginning of Behind The Lines, what we have in this album is the most boring collection of songs Genesis ever crafted. No excitement, just a collection of pop ballads that all sound the same. Behind The Lines soon turns out into a random R&B song. Duchess is pretty boring. Man of Our Times is even worst than Duchess. Misunderstanding is another attempt of copying motown that dosen't work. Heathaze is OK. Just nothing new. Alone Tonight has the worst chorus of a Genesis song. Cul-De-Sac is another art rock attempt that dosen't work and Please Don't Ask is another boring Face Value let down.

But Guide Vocal is a beautiful interlude. Turn it on Again is one of the best hits Genesis ever wrote. Duke's Travels has some prog in there. Yes. Far from being the best Genesis song but it ends the album in a high note with Duke's End compared to all the mediocrity that the other songs have.

In Conclusion, Duke is where the real poppy Genesis starts. Only real collecters and fans of the Phil Collins era should have this album.
