2 stars NOt as bad as I initially thought it would be, nor the īreturnī to their prog roots as I read somewhere. In fact, it has some decent pop rock songs in it: Congo, Itīs Not About Us and others. And even some interesting prog pop tunes like Alien Afternoon But there are also lame stuff like Shipwerecked. Ray Wilsonīs voice is fine, but sounds nothing like Gabriel or Collins, so I really did not see the point of calling this a Genesis album. Rutherford-Banks Project? That would be more fitting, I guess. No wonder this album was not a success. And I am no too sad we did not see a follow up.

Still, it is done with the usual profissionalism and has a good production. If you like pop rock songs youīll find some good tunes here. But, please, donīt look for anything that sounds like Genesis. Not even 80īs Genesis. It does not!

Two stars. For (hardcore) fans, collectors and completionists. And for pop rock lovers in general.
