4 stars When I first heard Duke I felt like the typical old faithful fan that had been betrayed for a new ' sounding' Genesis. As erstwhile fans do, they persevere and in my case I am glad I did becuase Duke is a great album. Duchess being the high point but Guide Vocal, Behind the Lines and Heathaze are solid enough tracks. Side two is definitely more commercial but for those who liked the new direction Genesis were taking as a natural progression then you won't be disappointed with Duke. It definitely has a concept feel about with the exception of the Collin's tracks. 'Please don't ask ' is raw emotion concerning Collin's dissolving realtionship with his then wife. Yes you could also pick up he had hit the formula for commercial songs outside Genesis and in some future Genesis tracks but then again it worked as the times had changed.
