Smallcreep's Day Review

by Steve McMullen

Mike Rutherford's first solo album is awash with sounds, but no melodies. From the first note, there's a layering of keyboards and guitars flows, much like on '70s Genesis albums. There are also intricate instrumental passages, again similar to Genesis. The difference lies in Rutherford's inability to produce even one memorable song on this disc. The production is flawed by David Hentschel, whose dense sound also marred the Genesis albums And Then There Were Three and Duke. Chances are even a die-hard Genesis or Mike Rutherford fan can find a better way to spend 15 bucks.
