CD Reviews

Journey into Pop
L. Cornell | Layton UT, USA | 12/25/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Ant has attempted to enter mainstream pop with this release, with tightly written, commercially palatable tunes. This attempt often fails to succeed in various points throughout the disk, as the compositional strengths of Ant do not seem to fit the pop mold. Other times it connects, such as "Going for Broke", which sounds almost like Mike + the Mechanics, and "Love in a Hot Air Balloon." Here though, the lyrics walk a fine line between quaint and silly while the tune is quite catchy. Some of the tracks seem strained in trying to be "poppish" and are downright unlistenable, but as you are about to give up, you find some true gems, like "My Time has Come" and "Ballad of Penlee."Thus this CD is quite hard to rate, and others are like not as harsh. I'd give it 2 1/2 but I put two since I can't give 1/2's. "Wise After the Event" it ain't in terms of originality and creativity."
Excellent Anthony!

"This CD is absolutely phenominal. I don't know what those other
guys were hearing, but I have been a musician since the age of
9 years old (I am now 46) and this CD sounds fantastic to me!
I bought the LP back around 84 and listened to it hundreds of
times. Still sounds just as great as any of Anthony's pieces.
Wish that he could have been more successful with this and
maybe some of his fans in the USA could have seen him tour.
I f you like Genesis ,Trespass through Duke, you will most likely
be able to appreciate the enourmous amount of creativity going
on here. Traces is a favorite! Anthony is severely underrated!"
DEFINITIVE MASTER STROKE

"This is it. This is Phillips' definitive work. Here, he competes with fellow/ex-bandmates Mike, Tony, Phil and Peter and shows his replacement STEVE HACKETT that he is in their league when it comes to writing strong yet interesting music. The heavy handed GOING FOR BROKE has the flair that one gets accustomed to when one is a GENESIS fan. He just rips it up on this track. The ghostly and melodic FALLING FOR LOVE AGAIN is as good as anything you'll hear in this genre. LOVE IN A HOT AIR BALLOON and GURU are sublime as is the humorous GOLDEN BODIES. A wide range of emotion and thought is explored and the result is the absolute defining Phillips album. Look out Phil, Mike, Tony, Peter and Steve."
