3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, if unspectacular, final outing for 'Peelip', 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: We Can't Dance (Audio CD)
This 1991 release was the last studio album to feature Phil Collins (drums/vocals) - for me, Genesis were some way beyond their creative peak but, even so, there are still a few gems to be found here. Of the 12 tracks, 5 were released as singles with the powerful 'No Son Of Mine' and the catchy 'I Can't Dance' standing out for me. As on 'Invisible Touch', the band's songwriting talents are aimed fairly squarely at MOR - indeed several tracks on 'We Can't Dance' could easily have found their way onto a Collins solo album. The most interesting material is to be found in the shape of the two 10-minute tracks - 'Fading Lights' is a highly impressive piece which combines superb vocals with some lovely instrumental passages whilst 'Driving The Last Spike' showcases some sublime axework from the fingers of Mike Rutherford. On the downside are the 'social commentary' songs; 'Tell Me Why' is the worst offender (think 'Another Day In Paradise' by P. Collins and you get the picture). At 71 minutes, this album is clearly too long - if the guys had trimmed this down by 3 tracks and lost 20 minutes of material then I would have given it a 4th star. Worth buying at a low price though.
