“Duke” by Genesis - album review

TJR says

Episode ten of the seemingly never-ending pompous series arrived in March, 1980. The tiresome trio remain: Phil Collins (vocals, drums, vocals, drum machine, percussion), Tony Banks (keyboards, backing vocals, 12-string guitar) and Mike Rutherford (guitars, bass guitar, bass pedals, backing vocals). Three UK singles were released from the set: “Turn It On Again” (#8), “Duchess” (#46) and “Misunderstanding” (#42). The first of these is the album's clear pop highlight, but any hope that this thrilling level of excitement might be maintained is immediately dashed by the utterly pathetic schmaltzy drivel which follows. Bring back Peter Gabriel - all is forgiven!
