3 stars If someone wants me to leave the room they will play the "We can't Dance" track. I do enjoy "No Son of Mine", "Hold on My Heart", "Driving the last Spike" and much of the content of this album. It is way better than anything on the previous few albums discounting "Mama". This is still pop music however it is a much more mature pop sound than it was previously. I see "Fading Lights" as Genesis's goodbye track. This is an album that I enjoy and I do hold on to it fondly. Other than for the "We can't Dance" track there is nothing here that is, to my mind, throw away stuff. I have found that Genesis aren't the only band who "sold out" during the 80's and nineties and perhaps it was more the fault of the recording companies and executives than of the band members of a great deal of music. Things became about the money that could be made from music - the more the better - than about the art of music. Big Business got ahold of the music world. I can't in all honesty give this album a 4 star rating when I look at music as an art form however I do like this album. So 3 solid stars it is.
