1 stars This album was released a year after the poor ''Abacab'' from whom you might have heard. I have rated this (non) ''Genesis'' album with one star.

To put things into perspective, you have to consider that ''Abacab'' was a masterpiece in comparison with this humiliating ''Acting Very Strange''.

Again, the title of the album is very well chosen. Our dear Mike was indeed acting very strange. These songs are absolutely awful. He improvised himself as a lead singer and the result is an enormous catastrophe.

The song writing is pitiful as well: there is nothing to be found here. No melody, no passion, no moving instrumental breaks NO NOTHING. From start to finish.

This is one of the poorest release I have ever heard (and I have heard a few thousand ones). I guess that it is not necessary to write a long & detailed review about this dreadful thing. It is a shame really. The only listenable song is the closing ballad ''Hideaway''.

To make your life healthier, I can only recommend you to NEVER, EVER listen to this record. Shame on you Mike. This is a typical zero star album. Such a sad story!
