4 stars Highly Strung is no doubt a better album than Cured, but more than that, it is a fine prog-pop/rock album, far edgier than any of Genesis' 80's music (which I for the most part enjoy btw). This is a album you can listen to the whole way through, with killer instrumentals like Group Therapy and some really addictive parts with Camino Royale, Cell 151 and Walking Through Walls (whose 12" version on certain editions is dynamite). I would take Highly Strung over Please Don't Touch, though it does not quite step up to his other 70's albums.
