3 stars First, this is not the best album Genesis did since Then there were three, Duke is better by miles, and second this is not a weak album at all like 80% of the reviewers said here. Realy this Calling all stations from 1997 is not a bad album, of course is no more a Genesis album is more like a Rutherford/Banks album but as a whole is ok. Well is not among their best for sure but has some fine moments and good keys. Now, the voice of Ray Wilson is not bad at all, but is damn usual for Genesis, realy, with all that there are some fine vocal parts in this album like:Calling All Stations, If That's What You Need and Small Talk, the rest of the pieces are ok. The founding memebers of Genesis Banks and Rutherford are not shining here thats clear, but they've tried to do something decent, and most of the time they succeded. They've invited on drums the famous Nick D'Virgilio who has many contributions with bands like Tears for Fears, Spock's Beard, etc. So, the music and the atmosphere has sometimes a dark mood but also is very melodic aswell- ex Calling all statation, but as whole is not bad at all. The music is of course no longer the one that we know from the golden era, that is for sure, time are changeing, and Genesis did with Calling all stations a good job, nothing special but nevertheless an enjoyble album all the way. 3 stars for this little album in Genesiis career.
