4 stars I think that this is a good single, despite I think that it was a strange choice to release "Many Too Many" as a single, not being a "happy song". I think that it could have been a better choice to release "Scenes From a Night`s Dream" as a single instead. But "Many Too Many" is a good song, composed by Tony Banks, with lyrics about being bored working in a band for several years, a theme that several bands have used to write songs. It has a very good piano part accompanied very well by other keyboards, and with very good vocals by Phil Collins and a lead guitar by Mike Rutherford.

The songs included in the B-side of this single are also very good. "The Day the Light Went Out" is a song composed by Tony Banks with Progressive arrangements and very good keyboards. I think that the lyrics are about an apocalyptic situation caused by nuclear bombs explosions, but I could be wrong. "Vancouver" is a song with lyrics which are a bit similar in theme to The Beatles` "She`s Leaving Home", but in this Genesis`song the story told has a happy ending, with the girl regretting to leave her home and family, and her parents asking her to forgive them. It is a song composed by Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford, played without drums, but with a bit of percussion instruments, acoustic guitars and keyboards.

4 stars Hm... mostly here reviewing the b-sides, but the A-side Many Too Many is a nice cut from the And Then There Were Three album anyhow. The Day The Light Went Out a fast, bassy track which could have easily been on the LP, though I'm having a tough time picking a track to scrap for it as the album ... (read more)

5 stars I'm surprised this hasn't been rated yet. So I'll go first. This is an excellent single from And Then There Were Three and is far superior to Follow You Follow Me IMHO. Between 1976 and 1980 in particular, Tony Banks' song writing was inspired and this is another example of a master craftsman at ... (read more)
