2 stars I wonder if Fish fantasizes about kidnapping Peter Gabriel and keeping him in a pit in his cellar, and sending him down a bucket filled with moisturizer while saying "It puts the lotion on it's skin...". I'd swear he wants to be Gabriel.

He made a few albums which are pale imitations of Genesis. At best they sound like the first few post-Gabriel albums. The he left, to record less proggy albums (at least from what I've heard). The reamaining band did not descend to the depths Genesis did after their singer left, but there was a merked decline.

This collection sounds like it may have been selected by Fish, to show how much he was needed in the band. While his tracks are not great, they far outshine the blandness of the Hogarth tracks. I cringe at the imitation U2 on Cover My Eyes (should have covered my ears, too), and the imitation Police on No One Can.

I've heard better from this band.
