Comments for the album Invisible Touch by Genesis:
Had this on cassette back in the day first time I heard it thought not a bad no. on it played it several times then Remember the Spitting image puupets on 'Land of Confusion' & 'In Too Deep' on the film 'Mona Lisa' my favourites Tonight Tonight Tonight,Invisible Touch,Domino,Throwing It All Away
This album is filled with songs that I just barely remember hearing on the radio.
This one is no more "pop" than the previous two albums, but it probably "feels" more poppy because it rolls out all of the mid 80s cliches: glossy production, over-the-top keyboards, etc. Plus, half of the album is on regular radio rotation, so we just associate it with "pop". It's certainly more pop than prog, but there is a lot of good stuff from both genres here.
"Invisible Touch", "Tonight Tonight Tonight", and "Land of Confusion" are deserving singles; the latter track is one of my favorite songs. This album is confident, powerful, energetic, glossy, etc etc etc...except for throwaways like "Throwing it All Away". Yes, the inconsistency of pop-era Genesis rears its ugly head on that song and "In Too Deep". Thankfully, every other song is above average to excellent. Domino is a prog epic - I don't care what anyone else says. "The Brazilian" is a snazzy experimental track - almost reminding me of the crazier tracks from The Lamb!
It's a pop album. Nothing wrong with that.
Sometimes when you try to please everyone you end up falling short. Genesis reached the mainstream with this huge hit of an album but lost a lot of longtime fans in the process. They sold a lot of records at the time but this album feels dated and compromised decades later.
This album is written off as a simple, trite pop album, especially by 70s-era genesis fans, but it is a GREAT simple, trite pop album, with some a great long-player as well in "domino". "invisible touch" does everything their self-titled album did but better. The title track, "land of confusion" (mike's social commentary) and "anything she does" are loads of pop fun. "tonight, tonight, tonight", while lyrically simple, is musically dense, especially the bridge (cut out in the radio edit). "the brazilian" is a great instrumental and the ballads, while superficial, work well as affecting love songs in a pop context.
Invisible Touch, the 13th studio album by Genesis, was released at the band's commercial peak. They were not only huge as a band, but Phil Collins was also enjoying massive solo success. This album was their most popular, with 5 top 5 singles including their only US #1 song (the very annoying title track). The album went to #1 in the UK and #3 in the USA.
The band also reached back to its past and threw in 2 prog rock songs, "Domino" and "The Brazillian", apparently trying to not completely lose what was left of their original fan base. Those 2 songs act as filler. The title track and the megahit "In Too Deep" are annoying, but the other singles, particularly "Land Of Confusion" still sound pretty good. You have to give them some credit...they really were trying to please all of the people at the same time.
