Disclaimer: CD version 1, for the B-Sides. As stated in an earlier review, this single reviews will be added to the complete CAS review as an update.

1.- Shipwrecked 5/10 This song it's very repetitive, but it's not an unlistenable song, just forgetable. Genesis has done much better ballad type songs.

2.- Phret 7/10 What i found was missing in the CAS album was an instrumental, and here is one, it's kind of a misterious and innocent track with some nice changes here and there but overall most of the song repeats once.

3.- 7/8 8/10 An instrumental and in an odd time signature (also something that i felt was under-used in CAS)? Well, even though its just 7/8 i'm happy, and this for me is probably one of my favorite tracks from the CAS sessions. Sounds like some kind of videogame menu music, and a good one at that.

So overall, this was pretty nice, i really like instrumentals, 67/100 curiously hampered by the reasons why this single was released.
