3 stars Wow does this album rate poorly with many of the other reviewers! Let me start off by saying that I like pretty much all versions of Genesis, some more than others. To the people who think Phil Collins ruined Genesis I saw BALDERDASH! The pop bent of Genesis in the 80s is as much about Banks and Rutherford as it is about Collins. It was a decision of all involved, and agreed upon by all.

That said, there is much here that is just too poppy - Invisible Touch, Anything She Does, In Too Deep. But there are still strong prog songs here - Tonight Tonight Tonight, Domino, Land of Confusion, The Brazillian. In fact, Domino is one of my favorite Genesis songs of ALL TIME. This song just sings to me; I love the interplay between the drums and the keyboard.

With all that in mind, it still is only an average album. I saw them on this tour and they smoked it, but unfortunately they didn't play much of the old material, mostly stuff from this album and the one before. Still, Domino is worth the price of admission in and of itself.

I would give this 3 1/2 stars if they allowed that.
