Good, but Prog Rock fans: caution!
on 6 June 2016
A nice sounding vinyl re-issue, but it's not really Banks at his best. There's nothing wrong with most of it - pleasant pop tunes that sound like Abacab-era Genesis - but it never really grabbed in the same way A Curious Feeling does or his work with early Genesis. Banks takes on the vocal role here, and the results are surprisingly not as bad as you'd think. If you like the poppy side of Genesis, this will be up your street, but if you're a fan of the early stuff then it's not for you. I sit in the middle, so can appreciate the short, poppy tunes, but they're just not as memorable as the work he did with Genesis. It's probably not something I'll listen to often, but when I do, I enjoy it.
