True, Not a great song but do you feel they ever redeemed themselves after that? 
 Surly most Genesis fan look at SEBTP as one of their better albums overall.

I had to find out what "jumping the shark" meant first of all, and for me, it was everything from the 1980 Duke album onwards. Thumbs Down

That’s harsh. Harkens back to their first album.

Genesis always had Pop inclinations from the very start. It is very difficult to have the same worldview when you’re 40, to when you were 22. I think they never ‘jumped the shark’, as the Pop side of things was a gradual progression a became the dominant styling. Hey, I love the full-blown Prog Genesis of old as much as the next Progger, but I always find time to enjoy Abacab or self-title at the drop of a hat.
Invisible Touch does push the friendship a little, but there’s still some complex things going on there.

 OK, I may get beat up a little for this one but here goes. ( it's just for fun kids!) 
For The record I like some of these songs but they are definitely some of the the more pop Genesis tunes.
So when (if at all)  did they "jump the shark?"
