3 stars I am very pleased with this Genesis record from the year when I was two years old. The last vinyl record by Genesis is strong and interesting and at least their best work since Duke 1980. If it just where for the first alf of the record I would have given the record four stars because those tracks are so strong. This is the last record with Phil Collins as a member and perhaps we will se a reunion in the future. I hope so very much. I they could gather all five it would be like heaven but even a reunion of the three would I praise and dance for.

We can't dance consists of intelligent pop music and I could nearly call it art rock or art pop, although not progressive. "No son of mine" is a powerful starter(8/10) which I like very much. The verses are so emotionally sung and the refrain is an explosion. "Jesus he knows me" then is faster and even poppier but almost as good as the last one(8/10), "Driving the last spike" (9/10) is the best track on the album and absolutely one of Genesis best tracks since 1977. It has depth and emotion and varies from calmer to harder parts and this track is like a Genesis final och goodness. The title song then is good and catchy (6/10) but not more than that. I will also mention "Tell me why" as a song I like and think is a little more interesting than the others(7/10). Otherwise it's most good and nice late-Genesis compositions with great Collins vocals and good music. The tracks nine and eleven is less interesting than the others.

Over all this is a very pleasent record by my heroes Genesis. I will give the record three well deserved stars!
