Underappreciated follow up to Abacab, Solid 80's Genesis sound.

Non-Prog Pop
This is, in my book at least, the first really poppy album from Genesis, "Duke" being generally proggish and "Abacab" being in many ways too minimalistically weird to be considered pop proper. "Genesis" contains a lot of tunes that don't appeal much to me, which doesn't mean that they are objectively bad tunes of course. There are, nonetheless, four really great tunes on this one, "Mama" with its dark athmosphere and slow build-up being the most iconic one. While not super comple, "Home by the Sea - Second Home by the Sea" is nonetheless a long tune, which contains lots of interesting musical elements, really weird lyrics and quite catchy vocals. Lastly, there's the forgotten gem "Silver Rainbow" which is almost fairy-tale-like musically. I'd say these four songs are worth buying the whole album for.
