Customer Review

on 3 March 2009
After the departure of Steve Hackett, Genesis startet their trip in to pop boredom. However, on this album (and the next "Duke"), things were working out well for the group. This is a more prog-pop than prog-rock, but threre are also tracks that can satisfy hardcore prog fans, like f.ex. "Deep In The Motherlode". The girls get their share with nice ballads like "Undertow" and "Snowbound". The latter with a fantastic arrangement, thanks to Bank's keyboard and also nice guitar from "new" guitarist Mike Rutherford.

The new remaster/remix is a mixed bag. The compression is flattening the dynamics a bit, but that's a bigger problem on "Trick of..." and "Wind and Wuthering". As many reviewers are mentioning, the high pitch, especially on the vocals, can be too bright, but remember the 1994 definitive remaster was far from perfect. The music is nicely balanced and clear. I prefer this remix, but it's pretty close!
