A very good album of Tony Banks
Pablo Hillar | Santa Fe, Argentina | 10/11/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bankstatement is just one of the more solid albums of Tony Banks. In fact it has a really good songs and someother not so good. The vocals of Jayney Klimek and Alistair Gordon are good. Throwback, I'll be waiting, That Night, The more I hide it and Thursday the thwelve are the better songs for me. I'll be waiting is just a really good comercial soft wich was listened on the radio. Throwback is a moved song in the direction of Shortcut to somewhere (Gordon has not the powerfull of Fish) and has great moments. That Night is just a little piece of gold, sang by Gordon and Klimek together, and a great melody composition. Finally, Thursday..., shows the true Banks with one of his best instrumentals which will overtake yourself. The rest it`s ok."
Approachable and pleasant

"The music on this album foreshadows Tony Banks' followup efforts Still and Strictly Inc., and while the instrumental work here doesn't stand out as much as compared to the wonderful "A Curious Feeling," the music is solid, and the vocals are excellent. Alistair Gordon and Jayney Klimek do Banks' material justice, providing most of the album's high points. Standouts for me include Gordon's aching voicing of "I'll Be Waiting" and Klimek's haughty and sinister "Queen of Darkness." Tony wisely limits his vocal input to a single song ("Big Man") where his voice suits the song's atmosphere.

"A Curious Feeling" is still Tony's best solo effort to date, but "BankStatement" is a very pleasant listen, and tops much of what showed up under the Genesis banner 1983 on."
Tony Banks Makes A Statement
Alan Caylow | USA | 03/24/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Bankstatement" is the 1989 solo project by Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks, featuring lead vocals by Alistair Gordon and former Other Ones singer Jayney Klimek (though Tony himself takes the mike for one song, "Big Man"). Poppy, polished & radio-friendly, "Bankstatement" is the most fun and breeziest-sounding album Tony has ever made. That it didn't find an audience upon it's original release is a shame, 'cause almost all of the tracks here could've easily been big hits for Tony. Still, it's a great disc, with such catchy tunes as the brassy blast of "Throwback," the ominous "Queen Of Darkness," the beautiful duet between Gordon & Klimek on "That Night," the playful "Big Man," the powerful ballad "The More I Hide It," and the excellent instrumental, "Thursday The Twelfth." Tony's keyboard flourishes & songwriting is wonderful (and a very good vocal on "Big Man," too!), and Gordon & Klimek's fine voices fit Banks' material like a glove. For diehard fans of Tony Banks, "Bankstatement" is a treasure."
