3 stars Just a few lines while listening to Fading Lights via progarchives player... A bit unfair really to see this album with one star rating or two... Here, Genesis were really a bit more sophisticated in their pop period procedure and its obvious throughout the two records. Of course, Prog here is just a sense emerging from the inner structure of the long songs - Driving The Last Spike, Dreaming While You Sleep and especially on Fading Lights(easily the best song here and a stronger reminder of the more glorius past), while on the other side their pop rock songs, in my opinion, tend to be much more decent than the ones from Invisible Touch - see, No Son Of Mine, Jesus He Knows Me (one of the cleverest and funniest video clips of that year), Tell Me Why and - why not actually - Hold On My Heart with its almost airy atmosphere. A decent goodbye from a giant band in a period where Prog Rock was in the stage of reinventing itsself. easily three stars!
