AllMusic 2.5/5 stars[1]

AllMusic's retrospective review rated more of the album's instrumental suites as mixed in quality, but dismissed the three pop songs as mediocre and "rather hookless."[1]

Song notes[edit]

  • A short section of Banks' music heard in the film Quicksilver did not appear on either the soundtrack album or Banks' Soundtracks album.
  • Most of the tune to the track "Lorca" was reused in the song "Queen of Darkness" from the Bankstatement album (1989).
  • "Smilin’ Jack Casey" is available only on this album. It is not available on the Quicksilver soundtrack album.
  • A section of the song "Shortcut to Somewhere" was performed live for the first time when Genesis played a special concert for the 40th anniversary of Atlantic Records in 1988. It is the only Tony Banks solo song to have been played live by the band.
