4 stars This is the last GENESIS' record that I can listen all the songs without being bored, except maybe "Follow You Follow Me", which was a big hit during those years. Despite Steve HACKETT's departure, Mike RUTHEFORD took the control of the guitar elements, and succeeds very well. We feel here that the songs are less loaded, more floating and romantic. The longest tracks are still quite progressive ("Burning Rope", "Lady Lies"). The keyboards are absolutely omnipresent, varied and rather floating and melodic: There are some parts where the keyboards get so coloured and deep that it becomes almost quintessential ("Burning Rope"). The rythmic guitar and melodic solos are well suited for the modern keyboards. Mike RUTHEFORD's bass is quite impressive, and we can easily listen to it because it is not hidden by the guitars. COLLINS' drums are quite good, but obviously not as good as on "Trick of the Tail".
