If you're a 70s dinosaur, like me, everything that came after is bound to be a disappointment. After the dire Invisible Touch album, you got a sense of where Genesis had positioned themselves and, therefore, what to expect from any new album. In that context, this isn't too bad. There are certainly no classic tracks on it, but Fading Lights is still pretty good. No Son Of Mine, and I Can't Dance are well worth a listen, the latter employing the whimsical humour that characterised Genesis lyrics throughout their career. Driving The Last Spike comes in at a pleasing 10 minutes plus, but lacks the instrumental solos, originality and uniqueness that made other long Genesis tracks so brilliant to listen to. The remainder of the tracks vary from OK to just about bearable. None stick in the memory for very long. This album is a product of it's time; it just wasn't a time that excited me much.

Sing of the times. Multiple megahits. More guitar than on some earlier albums. Nice riffs too. Parts of it is a strange compination of progrock and sugar coated pop songs. Some songs are more Collins solo material than Genesis stuff. Still many brilliant songs.

This album is some of their music I experienced growing up. I enjoy the style of music on this album.

I sent for this to replace the original tape we had some years ago,. Still doesn't disappoint!

Well-produced, some absolutely superb tracks, some good ones and some rubbish (but not many).
They'd been on the go for over twenty years by then and were still coming up with excellent music AND playing to giant crowds, which says something about their talent and professionalism.

A real pleasure to listen to one of the original Supergroups playing and enjoying what they do with such aplomb. Great.
