Entertainment Reviews:

Mojo (Publisher) - 3/01, p.82
"...The production is so mid-'80s - it was nevertheless impossible to go anywhere for a good 12 months without hearing 'Invisible Touch', 'Land Of Confusion', 'In Too Deep' or 'Tonight Tonight Tonight'....the result rarely sounds anything less than ruthless in its commercialism."

When Genesis reconvened to record 1986's INVISIBLE TOUCH, Phil Collins had a thriving solo career in both music and film, Tony Banks was recording movie scores, and Mike Rutherford was doing well in Mike & the Mechanics. Though it may have seemed impossible for the band to do better as a unit, this record spun off five Top 5 hits including the chart-topping title track. By tapping into a baby-boomer market that had lots of disposable income, Genesis became an adult contemporary god.
INVISIBLE TOUCH represented the perfect hybrid that Genesis had been striving for: a pop sound mated with prog-rock flair. "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" demonstrated this perfectly. Despite being over eight minutes long, the topic of dysfunctional relationships had enough universal appeal in it to be used in a beer commercial. "Land of Confusion," a straightforward number commenting on the pervasive greed of the '80s was one of the album's hit singles along with the soft-rock ballad "Throwing It All Away." The Domino Suite ("In the Glow of the Night," "The Last Domino") may have been a nod to the band's more progressive past, but the sweeping instrumental, "The Brazilian," truly harkened back to Genesis' art-rock glory days.
