2 stars I consider any other P.G album better than this boring, dark and over produced album. Eaven P.G 2 is more interesting and has better songs on it, all though it sounds more like a demo than an offical album. In the end its the songs that matter.

This one kicks of with the depressing but hopeful song Darkness. Its one of the better ones and reminds me of the older PG material. Other good songs are Sky Blue and the piano ballad The Drop. This album doesent rock at all. Thereīs hardly any good melodies eather. I Grieve starts up nicely but in the chorus you realise that it ainīt nothing but a collection of sounds. The Barry Williams Show with itīs embarrasing lyricks is just painfull to listen to, all though it has a deasant chorus. No Way Out or should we say Red Rain part 2 makes you wonder why he choose these songs out the 1000 others he wrote during the ten years after the Secret World tour. Signal To The Noise was probably supposed to be the master peace of the album. The dead guy singing thing doesent make me cry. More than good if you forget about the silly lyricks. Is this the same guy who wrote So and Us? This isīnt experimental. There is nothing new here. Security is experimental, good sounding and real prog rock with real songs on it!

Iīll buy the next album anyway. This one was such a dissapointment after Us. Up is not a bad album. It has its moments but ten freekinī years and this is what we get!! It still beats the hell out of another failed album called Testify from mister Phil Collins.

Waitinī for the Genesis reunion.
