    REENO. I am an audiofil analog music listener, the cd sound is only 2nd, if there is no other way to listen music. If you like this more than the Lamb album, is explain everything from your taste and quality.

      The sound on this is a bit thin - doesn't really capture the big moments (the chorus of Man Of Our Times for example) very well.

        I would wonder what has happened with the audio quality of this material?? It just sounds like a shame. If I would pick this album with me to a high-end show people would just laugh. Or compare to their previous efforts. Though Wind & Wuthering started already something, but this....I only say about the audio quality. However not this is my favourite G music. All the previous ones are better. Even the PG era. Thats magic. But every 10 years I would listen this, but this foggy crap sound disappoints me.... Was they on a high at the mastering?

          "Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite."

              Awful record, possibly one of the worst efforts by an art rock band in the history of art rock bands & a total slap in the face to progressive rock and its fans. I was not happy with this album. I think it was a sad day for Genesis- a band that had led the way with Yes and a few others creating the very genre of art rock in the 1970's. This "effort" is nothing more than a band trying to alter its image to make more money hitting the top 40 market perceiving-I feel incorrectly-that the smart money was in commercial top 40 radio play instead of with FM radio AOR which this album claims to be but pretty much wasn't. Calling this AOR was like calling a Ford a Lamborghini. "Definitively didn't qualify as AOR" says it better as in there was no way this pop orientated effort qualified even as a rock album never mind qualifying as an art rock album even though it actually was a concept album. This album caused the bands fan base to change dramatically from art school types to people with MBA's who thought the songs were "catchy." It basically hailed the end of the art rock era and the beginning of a period of very basic top 40 type songs from Genesis & a few others. After Genesis made this they made four more similar releases & one final release in 1997 after which they disbanded never to be heard from again. I don't think they were well thought of after this release. It really wasn't very good.
