2 stars Ahhhh, Abac**p (sorry for the vulgarity but I couldn't find a better way to describe the album)

The first album I gave one star. Why ? Because it isn't memorable. It is loaded with a lot of bad songs except for Man on The Corner which has a great melody. Could have been a great highlight on Face Value. But it dosen't manages to save this album from a one star status. Now, the bad songs:

ABACAB has all the possibilities to be a great song. Great verses, great choruses but there is one thing. The synth sections are bad.

No Reply at All is more like a disco song than a Genesis song. It's another song full of R&B influences .

Me And Sarah Jane is another try at art rock that dosen't work (this condition began in Cul-De-Sac) Keep It Dark is simply boring.

Dodo/Lurker grooves a lot but begins to have awful voices by mr Phil Collins.

Who Dunnit ? Possibly the worst song Genesis ever written. Repetitive and awful, this song actually gives the album one star.

Like It Or Not. Another 6/8 ballad that could had fitted well in Grease. Grease isn't memorable, so isn't this song.

Another Record has a good intro but it is a bad song.

So my friends, in conclusion, I have bad news. Genesis is dead. The next album is a little better and it never manages the downs of ABACAB.
