What does it sound like?:
A deluxe reissue of the ex-Genesis man’s second solo album. Originally released in 1978, this box set comprises three cds – the original album remastered, a disc of outtakes and demos, and a new stereo mix of the original album – plus a dvd containing a 5.1 mix of the album. The tone of the album is mainly acoustic, and is a mixture of instrumental music and conventional songs. The whole thing comes beautifully presented in a clamshell box with a very informative illustrated booklet.
What does it all *mean*?
For someone who always seemed to lack confidence in his singing voice, Phillips acquits himself very well on this defintive edition of a long overlooked prog album.
Goes well with…
Prog lovers will enjoy this, as will Genesis fans of course.
