Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
1 stars Peter Gabriel composed his song "Don`t Give Up" for his "So" album which was released in 1986, and while this song has gentle and human lyrics about unemployed people, Genesis, in 1983, recorded and released their worst song, in my opinion, with lyrics about illegal aliens and their problems when trying to cross the border. But the differences in lyrical approaches between Gabriel and Genesis were drastic. Genesis tried to take the situation of the illegal aliens in a "comic manner", both in the lyrics of the song and in the content of the video clip for the same song. And the results were a disaster, in my opinion, like their album from 1983 was in general (with the exception of "That`s All" and "It`s Gonna Get Better"). That album from 1983 sounds for me as a very uninspired album, more done for a contractual obligation, and it is their worst. And I still consider "Illegal Alien" as their worst mistake as a band.
