4 stars Its an excellent prog-rock commercial album in which Phil Collins did his entire life's vocal-best. The opening number Mama's vocals is outstanding by any standard or form of music. If you neutrally analyse the lyrics of this album, its not made of pop elements (well Genesis at least did not try to sing in its commercial phase something like why did you leave, baby please come back to me). What puts off prog-rock fans in this album is Genesis' shift from difficult structure to very simplistic construction with simple chords. Side A of this album is absolutely great while side 2 is not that great. Overall this is a good album to listen to.
