5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated album, 26 Nov 2011
This review is from: The Fugitive (Audio CD)
Well I felt I just had to redress the balance here, since this album is getting 2 1/2 stars average. I would say this is my favourite Tony Banks album. On all his other albums there is at least one track which I'm not so keen on. Not so 'The Fugitive'. Of course, you could say that Tony's decision to do the singing on all the tracks (apart from the instrumentals of course!) is a bit dubious, but I actually think it works better than could perhaps be expected. I think it's nice when someone is singing their own stuff. I could list individual tracks and say "oh, that's one's great!" but I think they all are! If I had to pick one standout track it would be a toss-up between 'This Is Love' and 'Thirty Three's'. Another reviewer was saying that 'A Curious Feeling' is the only Tony Banks album worth listening to, but I beg to differ. The problem with that album for me is the sound. There's just no "oomph". Not so with this album. It's a while since I last looked at the sleeve note but I'm pretty sure it was recorded at The Farm studio in Surrey where all the later Genesis albums were recorded. Anyway, if so, it shows.

Anyway, I've had my little say and hopefully if you are looking at this review and thinking of buying the album this will have encouraged you the part with your hard earned cash for it!
