4 stars Indeed, many would have you believe that this album began the downfall of Genesis towards "selling out" (something that I, for one, don't think they really ever did). I'm here to tell you that this album fits in with the Gabriel-era classics.

Is it on par with Foxtrot and Selling England? Not hardly. But just because there are no song lengths in the double-digits doesn't mean that we can dismiss this album as a "sell-out". These songs may be shorter, but they are still musically interesting, and what's more, they're flat-out good. This album, to me, has something for every Genesis fan: the overblown drama of Gabriel's Genesis, the skillfully constructed ballads of Collins's Genesis, and everything in between. It was said in an earlier review of this album that "this is the prog fan's 'pop' album, and the 'pop' fan's prog album". And Then There Were Three... subconsciously blends two styles without sacrificing quality, and for this reason, it is highly, highly recommended for any Genesis fan.
