2 stars The end of an era. Phil's last gasp. An album full of pop-rock with 3 saving songs that almost redeem it. "Driving the Last Spike" is a 10 minute tune about the building of the railroad across the United States. It is, by far, my favorite track on this album and it is always interesting. Phil's voice is in top form and the band is tight as always. "Dreaming While You Sleep" is an almost Peter Gabriel (solo album, not Genesis), type song. "Fading Lights" ends the album on a prog-ish note. However, between these 3 gems are some real bombs. Poppy and fluffy Genesis only the way they know how to create. The 3 good tunes here save the album from the 1 star rating that I may have given it. Not a lot of prog here. 2 stars is the verdict.
