2 stars ...And Then There Were Three marks the inevitable musical decline of the band, as should be readily obvious by the departure of Steve Hackett. Up to this point, Genesis had survived remarkably well without Peter Gabriel, releasing two phenomenal albums. However, this new Hackett-less band finally takes on a more pop sound as was subtly hinted in those previous two.

There are still moments of prog though, in songs like 'Down an Out,' 'Undertow' and 'Burning Rope.' But most of the album is filled with the weak pop numbers which seem to progressively increase across future albums.

Despite the few proggy moments on this album, the pop numbers turn this into an album I would only recommend to those Genesis completionists.
