    I love how people claim that Genesis turned to garbage when Peter Gabriel left and Phil Collins took over. Because they sold SOOOOOO many albums in the 1970's compared to the 80's and 90's. As if everyone was just dying to hear more 20 minute rambling songs sung by a man wearing a dress with a wolf mask on.

    I agree 80sfan, the more control Phil had the worse the band got. Their earlier stuff was far better than the this bubble gum top 40 bribble. I he went for th efame and glory and the music got lost.

    I personally think this song is fantastic! The drum line is very cool, and Phil's vocals are in top form here combined with some great lyrics.

    bleah, goopy song. I think Genesis got progressively sappier the fewer members they had.

    I have to admit to having a soft spot for this era of Genesis. I wouldn't normally be into this sort of thing but there are memories attached to this music. Good ole Phil...
