Horribly, horribly underrated. Considering how terrible most of the Genesis material after Duke was, this is not only a genuinely excellent record but a return to form after nearly two decades of embarrassing soft rock. Ray Wilson's voice is stunning and brilliantly suited to the darker tones of what is essentially a complex, sinister breakup album. It's a shame that, because this came so late in Genesis' genesis (ahem), it tends to be discounted - as on the Platinum Collection, to which this LP's title track is welded with no regard to chronology as an afterthought. In truth, this is probably their strongest work since 1978. It even managed to produce three solid pop singles without selling its soul. Which is something one wouldn't expect from the band that released 'Illegal Alien' and 'I Can't Dance' and 'Invisible Touch' and, erm, well. The record is highly reminiscent of some of their best synth work and song construction, but without sounding watered-down or ersatz. This vinyl edition is particularly nice, with its gatefold and etching. It's quite a good pressing, too.
