The second UK single from "Invisible touch" was all too predictably a ballad. Unfortunately, it is a bland insipid song, which would suit the style of any boy band who covered it. Released in 1986 in the UK, it just managed to breach the top 20, reaching 19. The click machine backing track, and so-sorry-for himself Phil Collins vocals are a million miles even from the post Gabriel era albums such as "A Trick of the tail".

The B side in the UK was an edited version of the non-album track "Do the neurotic", an instrumental which at least demonstrates that the band still knew how to make instrumentals. It is far from being their best, and does not compare well with say "Los Endos", but it is a reasonable attempt to return to what they used to do so well. The 12" single version had the full version of this track.

It was April 1987 before "In too deep" was release din the USA, where it reached the top 3. This time, the B side was another non-album track, "I'd rather be with you", a soul/funk based song which sounds much more at home with other "Invisible touch" album tracks. This cod Supremes number is instantly forgettable.
