2 stars Well... this is a a progressive rock album... now... as a Pop album, this is pretty good!

Sadly this is not Poparchives, this is Progarchives. Now, to the positives, as a prog song, Domino is pretty good... catchy, slow and dark, synthetic and ominous. Tonight, Tonight, Tonight is a nice progpop song. 'Throwing it all away' and 'In too Deep' are again, nice progpop songs. And finally 'The Brazilian' and interesting way to end the album, all of them are decent songs. Not at all comparable to stuff on Trespass through Wind and Wuthering.

Ok, now I'm done talking this album up. Other than those pleasant pieces, all the other songs either have nothing in common with the more pleasant pieces. The title track is an abhorrent pop song, it does seem like the band just sold out and went on to only do a pop album to make money. For Genesis, this album is as bad as it gets... Genesis is my favourite band of all time but this album is pretty bad, it is a good pop album altogether but... as a prog album... this album couldn't get much much worse. The positives keep it from reaching rock bottom.
