No Son of Mine video[edit]

Anyone know who played the teenager who played the protagonist in the video of "No Son of Mine"? Alex 06:56, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Nope, I've spent about 1/2 an hour trying to find that, sorry. Maybe I didn't look hard enough, eh? Skully Collins 12:01, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Commercial Success?[edit]

and the album didn't sell anywhere near as well as 'Invisible Touch.' By the release of 'I Can't Dance,' grunge had arrived, and Genesis sounded to many as decidedly old fashioned.

Aside from the weasel-word POV here, I feel this is somewhat misleading. According to Genesis, the sales were 22,000,000, which is only a bit less than Invisible Touch's 24,000,000 (which was their most successful album), and was still their second most successful album. It also made #1 in the UK album charts. But this sentence makes it sound like a flop - a statement more appropriate for Calling All Station. Mdwh 03:26, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Chart Peak Position Of 'Hold On My Heart'?[edit]

I'd like to confirm what the peak position 'Hold On My Heart' got to in the US and the UK.

References / POV?[edit]

The long paragraph starting "While there were nods to the band's creative past...", whilst interesting in places, seems very much like someone's personal review. Are there references for any of this? There seems to be lots of POV ("series of relatively forgettable ballads") and speculation about what Genesis were trying to do with this album ("an attempt to combine Genesis 80's heyday with a more adult-contemporary sound"). Anyone got some references, before I start trimming and editing it? Mdwh 14:29, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
