It's so interesting to me that Tony wrote such great "solo" songs for Genesis......yet his material on his solo albums frequently lacked that certain something. I guess it shows the influence of the other members of Genesis is making suggestions here and there when Tony would bring in a solo song for consideration.
My thoughts exactly. Some very good solo stuff but, sadly, never as fantastic as I expected.
That of course highlights the benefit of the group structure to get the best collective output from the individual inputs.
