Editorial Reviews

1996's Dance Into The Light presented a flavor of the unexpected as elements of world music came to the fore, most notably with flourishes of Afrobeat-styled percussion on several tracks. Both the album and its title track reached the Top 10 upon release. It concludes with a new take on Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'."

The deluxe editions of the albums will also be completed with carefully selected demos and B-sides.

Format: Audio CD
Phil Collins returns in stark contrast to the dark, sadness of 'Both Sides' with the much brighter, but less fulfilling 'Dance Into The Light'. One of the first thing fans will notice is that the cover photo isn't a close-up of Phil's face -- a minor departure from the rest of his work.
Even while generally regarded as the weakest effort from Phil Collins, 'Dance' still has 4 or 5 catchy tunes that should satisfy Phil-fans. The bouncy title track takes us back to the '80s with lots of horns and some earth-shattering drums. Kind of reminds me of 'Something Happened On The Way To Heaven'. There's the signature ballad that ranks right up there with the best love songs Phil can give us on 'The Same Moon'. One wonders why it was never released as a single - it might have nudged up the album sales altogether. With 'Lorenzo' Collins delves into the "world beat" scene and gives us a mind blowing display of the drums like only he can. Other tracks that work well are 'Ought To Know By Now', the upbeat 'Take Me Down', and the twangy 'No Matter Who'.
Unfortunately, the album is littered with songs that should have been B-sides. 'Love Police' does absolutely nothing. 'That's What You Said' sounds like somebody's been influenced by too many 50's bee-bop albums -- and that's just not Phil. Mysteriously, one of the weakest tracks, 'It's In Your Eyes' was released as a single and charted about exactly where it should: at #79. Some reviews dismissed 'Wear My Hat' as a Paul Simon rip-off. I liked it. Puzzling is the Bob Dylan cover that ends Collins' sixth studio album.
Overall, it's not bad by any means. While a few songs are vintage Phil, some of the album appears rushed, forced, and just doesn't seem to gel like his first four classic albums. This one's strictly for the devoted fans.

Dance into Phil's light!

Like Both Sides, Dance Into The Light wasn't a big seller when it was first released in 1996. It's very underrated. This is Phil's most upbeat album since No Jacket Required. I really like the songs on this one. Some of them have an African theme like Lorenzo and The River So Wide. Just Another Story is a song about urban life. Wear My Hat is a funny song. It's In Your Eyes is a pop love song. The real rock song on this album is Oughta Know By Know. The album booklet has the song lyrics, Phil's message and new photos of him dancing during the new photos shoot. The bonus disc has live versions of 5 of the songs 2 demos and three B sides. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Phil Collins!

I wrote an older review back in late 2001 and even now, I see this album as underrated. In light of the Deluxe Edition that was reissued, I wanted to update my old review in light of the bonus material on the reissued version.

I originally wrote a review on “Dance Into The Light” back in late 2001. Back then I thought it was another great album albeit his weakest of his solo albums. I still really like “Dance Into The Light” and in hindsight see it as another distinct chapter of his career. It was overall the slowest of his albums to grow on me but ultimately became another great addition to his catalog.

The album cover conveys the overall mood of the album as it marked a complete 180 from the previous album, "Both Sides" as it completely discarded the cold and gloomy beauty and brought back some of the trademark sounds of his first two albums. Some of the songs have a much more 'live' feel, as in having limited electronic or ambient sounds. "That's What You Said", and "It's In Your Eyes" are examples with an overall 'live' feel.

One of the the unique things is that this album experimented with world music, particularly African drumbeats. While it has drawn some comparisons, even unfavorable ones, to his Genesis counterpart Peter Gabriel's use of African drums, it totally works great on this album. "Lorenzo" and "River So Wide" have heavy use of world rhythms. "Lorenzo" is among my favorite songs on this album as with African flutes as an intro before it develops into an epic theme with a marvelous combination of his trademark drum sounds and African drums.

As with Phil's other remasters, it sounds fantastic. Things that I did not hear before are there now due to the advance in tech. The sound is better and clearer in all aspects. I could only imagine what a complete remix (true to this mix) would have sounded like. But when Phil went to Farrell to remix Face Value; he said to Phil "why would you want to do that? It is perfect as it is", so Phil went with a remaster instead. And they did a great job. Phil's music may be simpler than his Genesis work, but it is quite layered, and there is a lot going in there. Definitely recommend his remasters to anyone who loves his music.

I'd rate this album MORE THAN three and a half stars as a Phil Collins solo album. If this were a Genesis album I'd rate it three stars, but it's Phil Collins...

This one is really surprising. He threw his hat fairly and squarely in the "Adult Contemporary" ring on the prior "Both Sides" album.

"Dance into the light", however, changes everything. Rather than every song being a "Build up" song that last five minutes plus, "Dance into the light" feautres many shorter songs, making this a more punchy, invigorating album. And none of it is Adult Contemporary balladry.

"Wear my hat", "Take me down" and the title track are Latin- brassy songs that are a nice change of pace (although the title track suffers from the vocals not meshing into the song well). "That's what you said", "In Your eyes" and "Love Police" are british guitar pop at it's finest.

The big surprise was the epic "Just another story", which is close to 'Urban Hymns', featuring lyrics about the downsides of NOT TAKING parental advice - definitely a stretch for Phils' repertoire. "Lorenzo" and "The river is wide" are world music tunes and "The same moon" is a haunting track with lead guitar so beautiful it will send shivers up your spine.

He also covers "The times they are a-changin" - well that's ok but it's one of those timeless tunes and covering it will always leave you off second best. One of the songs is a five minute plus progressive rock track, which he asked someone else to sing for him - a huge misstep; the vocals don't mesh at all in this song.
