Review by Easy Livin
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin
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.

3 stars "Land of Confusion" is a good Rock Pop song with good lyrics which criticize Politicians. It also has again some good keyboard sounds played by Tony Banks, an interesting bass guitar and synth bass arrangement, and good electronic drums by Phil Collins. It was maybe a better choice than "In Too Deep" as a good song for a single. The promotional video for this song is very good, one of the best they did, with "guest appearances" of Ronald Reagan and wife in the main roles as puppets. "Land of Confusion" is also one of the best songs from the "Invisible Touch" album.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Land of Confusion was better than the other singles Genesis released from the Invisible Touch album, but like most of their material from this period, it lacks anything closely resembling progressive rock. It's basically a fast-paced pop rock song. The B side contains an interesting song called Feeding the Fire, which seems slightly similar to The Last Domino in its lyrical and instrumental darkness. Banks performs a nice keyboard solo during the instrumental section of this song, but somehow it seems uninspiring compared to his earlier efforts.

I'm going to give this two stars, mostly for the B-side and also because the single isn't that distasteful. Feeding the Fire is currently available on the Archive 2 box set, so seeking this single out should only be done by collectors/fans of the group. Two stars.

2 stars Invisible Touch -era was the commercial highlight in Genesis' career, and it happened to be also the time I started to listen to this band, at the age of sixteen. I used to play that album too, though I was much busier being a Marillion fan, and on the brink of finding prog's glorious past. One could think I would have nostalgic fondness for pop-Genesis, but in fact quite the opposite. Thanks to heavy radio/Mtv play I had my share of it already back then, thank you. 'Land of Confusion' was a smash hit in Mtv with the Spitting Image dolls of Ronald and Nancy Reagan and the band members of course. A catchy song, that must be said, but not quite up to my taste.It has some nice things in it but the overall feeling is too pushy and commercial.

'Feeding the Fire' gives me more nostalgia, as I remember playing it several times from a jukebox. I liked its emotional power that turns into a delicate instrumental section. A pretty good B-side track but when I heard it again some years ago its noisy rhythm pattern irritated me and it wasn't quite as good song that I thought it was.

2 stars A pretty decent Post Gabriel single, but like most Collins era Genesis its a disappointment to me. the B-side is throw away.

1 stars I brought this single when it came out, at that time i was a big Genesis fan so i was buying everything from the band. Now at 33 years old, the music presented here has no meaning to me anymore, my taste in music as really evolved since then ;) For me, Genesis is Trespass to Duke, after that ... (read more)
