1 stars Disastrous downfall!

OK, this is where the disaster begins. If I say that a song "No Reply At All", which features the brass of EARTH, WIND AND FIRE and is a funky soul/pop hit, is actually one of the better moments of this album I think it says everything. "Abacab" is a pathetic crap (sorry for language) loaded with tons of synthetic sounds and lousy songs that only a techno freak or a GENESIS fanatic would like to have. Alright, I admit the title song is not too bad, it is even danceable, but what are we talking about? - if I am in a mood for nice synth pop staff of the era, I always choose ULTRAVOX or HUMAN LEAGUE or SOFT CELL for that matter. Avoid at all costs!
