Prog Reviewer
2 stars Like his former bandmates in Genesis were trying at the time, Anthony Phillips attempted to shift over into a more accessible style with this album, though unfortunately the results are rather obscured by dubious production decisions. Phillips takes on the lead vocals himself this time (on The Geese and the Ghost he had relied on a little help from Phil Collins), and unfortunately his singing voice isn't up to the task. Worse yet, to my ears his voice seems to have had some variety of studio processing to it, making his vocals particularly distracting. And overall, the album seems mixed to obscure rather than showcase his guitar talents, which is what we're here to listen to in the first place. Something of a misstep, this one.
Warthur | 2/5 |
