3 stars Call me controversial, but I think this is far more enjoyable than 'Genesis'!

Thick with percussion, due to the mostly reprehensible Phil Collins - who for once, pulls out all the stops on this pretty spectacular little album that I held no hopes for whatsoever.

Quite similar in many respects to 'Weather Report' with that brilliant fretless bass pioneered by Jaco Pastorius and later by Mick Karn. An easy listening album that can well be listened to late at night. Collins does get a bit carried away with himself at some points, but in general this is a nice laid back affair with nothing too intrusive which holds a nice fusion ambience throughout.

There's plenty of Electric Piano, fingered guitar and 'slappy brushed drums' which all add up to an excellent album.

A good safe intro point for anyone interested in Fusion Jazz.
