3 stars Released on the tailend of the bands career, this album tends to be slamed by critics and fans alike. Let's review the positive aspects: - The production is very good, I would even go as far as to say it is one of the best ever for this band; - Brian Wilson's voice can imprint a dark tone to the music of Genesis that neither Phil Collins nor Peter Gabriel could, even though his range is more limited than the singers previously mentioned. - There are a lot of moments on this record that recall the best that they did in the 80's which brings us to the negative aspects: - There are lots of slow tempo songs, not exactly ballads, but still... - Even though Wilson tries very hard he doesn't have de dark magestic personality of Peter Gabriel or the Clownish persona of Phil Collins. That said this record will only be known by many hardcore fans, and loved or even appreciated by only a few. Still a record worth exploring.
