1 stars Horrific. By this point, Genesis were little more than a tool of Atlantic Records, a product to sell beer or whatever other products they could market them out to.

Depressingly, the highlight of this disc is the mediocre instrumental "The Brazilian", which most closely resembles the appalling "Second Home By The Sea". Hugh Padgham's mega-80's production, with clinky digital synthesizers and overloud "gated" drums pulverizes any life from the music.

Not that there was any life in these tunes to begin with. "Tonight Tonight Tonight" is not so much an prog number as an interminable extended dance remix of a lame three-minute pop tune. And "Domino" is the ultimate canard, two of the band's tunes that weren't seen as good enough to make it as singles by the suits, fused together as a "suite" and tossed to their old fan base like a bone. I'd expect that kind of thing from the likes of Uriah Heep, but from Genesis I'm totally not buying it.

There's not any point in me even mentioning any of the other songs here. If you have any sort of memory of the 80's, you'll have had these songs hammered into you like a litany. All of them are more memorable for their music videos than for their content. Typical 80's trash. The music is the last thing to be considered.
