3 stars I was curious for years to listen to this band after I listened to all Genesis` albums. But at the same time I did`t want to spend my money in some albums and bands which were not very known, despite having Phil Collins in the line-up. So, in 1989 a FM Radio Station in my city (defunct since 1995 and missed since then) broadcasted a series of programmes dedicated to Genesis`albums, their solo albums and other projects like Brand X. I had the opportunity then to record this album in a cassette which I did. I have to say that I expected more than I listened from this band. Maybe I expected a similar band to Bill Bruford`s "Bruford" band, so I was a little disappointed with Brand X. One of the good things in this album was to hear Collins playing very good Jazz-Rock drums. The rest of the band members are very good musicians too, but the music wasn`t very interesting for me. I have to say that I prefer Bruford`s band instead. Another positive thing in Brand X was the humour they used to name their songs. Years later Collins had problems with one of his ears. Maybe being exposed a lot of the time to loud sounds while playing in bands or as a soloist (because he was then an hyperactive musician, working "Here, There and Everywhere") was one of the reasons of his problems with his ears.
