3 stars An album I resisted from the start because of the loss of Steve HACKETT and the lack of a cohesive concept, sound or style to glue all of the songs together. But, I have to admit, there are some AMAZING songs (or, to be more accurate, parts of songs) on this album. The B parts of "Say It's All Right Joe" (4:18) (9/10) and "The Lady Lies" (6:08) (9/10) (amazing percussion work from Phil!) are among my all-time favorite Genesis themes. "Snowbound" (4:47) (8/10), Burning Rope" (7:07) (8/10), and "Deep in the Motherlode" (5:14) (8/10) all have some truly outstanding parts, but they just don't hold it together for the entirety of the songs--they sound like two or three songs forced together unnaturally. The rest must have been throwaways from previous Genesis or solo projects. Thank goodness for Duke, ABACAB, and the "Mama" album to show that these guys still have something left in them.
