4 stars If you listen to this record expecting to hear a Genesis record, you'll be as surprised and disappointed as were the previous reviewers.

If you open up your mind and forget who Tony Banks is, enjoy this record for what it is: great music, you'll really like it.

I'm a great fan of prog music, have 170 cds by Genesis and solos, 100 by Pink and solos, listen to Marillion, Pendragon, After Crying, PFM, Orme, King Crimson, Yes, etc., and there are three solo Genesis records I always enjoy, one is Steve Hackett's Voyage of the Acolyte, Rutherford's Smallcreep's Day and Tony Bank's A Curious feeling, this can't be because it's bad.

The elements from Genesis are there, the great keyboard sound and dramatic sections, the vocalist Banks chose takes some time getting used to (admitted), but once you get over that you really enjoy.

People sometimes listen too much with their brains, specially in Prog music, to much "that keyboard player really is fast, or, that drummer is awesome technically" and forget to listen without analyzing so much. Let go and "feel" the music and maybe you'll get into much more of what is available.

This is a great record despite what you may "think", and that may be the problem... that you are thinking too much!

I couldn't avoid contradicting the other reviewers (though they are entitled to their opinions!), because I think they are being unjust in classifying this as an average record, far from it in my opinion!
