5.0 out of 5 stars Underated Album 29 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
How can it be that Tony Banks has not had the solo success of fellow Genesis band members Collins, Rutherford and Gabriel?
If you like what is good about Genesis' music then you will love this album. Don't be put off by the guest singers - Banks will probably be the first to admit he isn't the strongest singer in the world but he is superbly aided here by the likes of Fish, Nik Kershaw and Jayney Klimick (from his previous album Bankstatement). The strongest tracks are with out doubt those with Fish who he has worked with before - and this reviewer hopes that they work together again.
There isn't a duff track on this album - they all could have been from a Genesis album and if that had happened then this album would have shifted by the bucketloads.
Give yourself a treat - buy this album and you won't be disapointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer brilliance 14 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
For those of you who bought Tony's first album (A curious feeling) I can promise you that this is a brilliant improvement. Having diverted away from the style of his first two albums, Tony then released music from his film soundtracks, followed by an album under a group "guise" called "Bankstatement", in which he wisely recruited some fine vocalists to enhance his brilliant song-writing and keyboard-playing. The resulting album was like a breath of fresh air, combining some radically different vocals with a touch of the old Genesis sound which his fans have come to love. With this in mind, "Still" is another album in the same brilliant vein, only better! Much as I love "Bankstatement", I must say that he has improved on it by making "Still". The opening track sets things off very well, with terrific vocals from Nik Kershaw and goes on through various styles and he even includes one track with his own voice (Hero for an hour) which seems to suit his vocal style. My favourite track on this album is "Still it takes me by surprise" which features a marvellous middle section in which Tony takes us back to a kind of "Firth of Fifth" mood and plays a brilliant keyboard! A very close second in my opinion is "Murder of a day" which has a haunting theme, perfectly complemented by the haunting voice of Fish. I bought this CD in 1991 and still enjoy it to this day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mix of Fish, Kershaw and Tony Banks 30 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album I got for 3 pounds, but it took me with surprice.
It is a brilliant mix with various vocals and Tony Banks as the organ virtuous.
In style close to Quicksilver, or to some extend what Genesis fans will remember as The Brazilian (from the Invisible Touch), however, this time not an instrumental one. On the album we meet a mixture of different vocalists - which is perhaps the best combination to the musical talent Tony Banks.
The "Angel Face" and "Another Murder of a Day" with Fish as main vocalist are perfect illustrations of how Fish should have continued after Marillion, never mind, this album brings in the best of his voice and the compositions of Banks.
The "Still it Takes me by Surprice" is another inspiring example of the musical talent of Banks.
The guest vocalist list includes Nick Kershaw, Fish, Andy Taylor and Jayney Klimek.

To my mind not as good as Curious Feeling but still a very good album (so to speak).
Vastly underestimated is Mr Banks

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Genesis 21 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I guess I was looking for a Genesis sound but then I should have stuck to Genesis albums! Particularly the Nik Kershaw songs are a bit poppy for my taste. The Fish tracks are better.
