Biography

The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.
Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Almost everywhere I've been going, I've been reading negative reviews on Genesis' album "Invisible Touch", so many in fact that I've jumped onto the frontlines to defend it with every cell of my body. I have a feeling that I'm likely to be in the fringes with this but I would have to say that this and it's successor "We Can't Dance" are actually my favorite Genesis albums of all time. Even by '86 standards, this album is light years ahead of a large majority of other albums that came out except for former bandmate Peter Gabriel's "So". I am one of the few fans it seems like who loves both the Peter Gabriel AND Phil Collins era released and the Ray Wilson release "Calling All Stations". The drum machines throughout this entire record are among the best even if purely polished pop production but the heavy polishing actually reinforces the artistic adventure that Phil Collins and his bandmates Rutherford and Banks had gone on as well. The circumstances of the record also helped. All three bandmembers had successful records between 1983's "Genesis" and early 1986. Phil Collins notably scored huge hits with his solo album "No Jacket Required" the year before but also Rutherford had success with his side project Mike and The Mechanics with "Silent Running" as well. So how were they going to get together and still be a strong band once more. Of course they had already done solo material between albums but this time, a big task lay ahead of them. Yet through it all, the best of the successes they had solo gelled with their greatest artistic endeavor entitled "Invisible Touch" and it shows throughout the record.

Produced and recorded from October of 1985 to March of 1986, "Invisible Touch" deservedly so, would ultimately go on to become their highest selling album they would ever make.

UPDATE: It has occurred to me that there is really no indication what this product page is for. WAS it in fact created for people to sell their Japan mini-LP editions? I sort of assumed it was, because the minimum price for sellers' of "INVISIBLE TOUCH" via this product page always seemed to be asking 3-5x more than the typical minimum for the standard USA edition and one seller even went out of the way to mention the product they were selling, in a nutshell saying it was a Japanese mini-LP edition.
Also worth noting is that there seems to be more than one product page for the Japanese mini-LP edition. I got mine from a friend for my birthday a couple years ago who bought it under ASIN: B00000JX7H from my wishlist.

The mini-LP design in itself is not that big of a deal to me. It is nice that it comes in a inner-sleeve much like LPs often do, since it IS housed in a cardboard case; something I wish was standard practice when people decide to manufacture an album in what is known as a "digipack", which is similar to a mini-LP, with the main exception being it doesn't replicate the vinyl edition, which in a lot of cases is practically impossible anyway, since most albums come to CD at the same time as the vinyl or before the vinyl release.
Another bonus, which is exclusive to this edition is that is is remastered, and not remixed. The current release from 2007 w/ the Rhino imprint IS remastered, but it is also remixed, and while I don't downright mind the 2007 remix, it's just not as rich and fulfilling as the original mix, which is less brash and is easier to listen to. I originally bought this edition not knowing for a fact that it was remastered, since the Amazon product info doesn't say so, nor is there much info on the web that talks about this.
