CALLING ALL STATIONS, Genesis' first post-Phil Collins release finds founding members Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford rebounding nicely in a situation that would debilitate many other bands. Newcomer Ray Wilson has a vocal style reminiscent of Paul Carrack that neatly falls between his predecessors Collins and Peter Gabriel. Musically, the band continues along the same art-rock path of seamless songs marked by slick guitar-and-keyboard textures. Never going beyond mid-tempo at any point, Genesis mixes in dollops of Brazilian percussion ("Congo") and pseudo-funk ("Small Talk"). CALLING ALL STATIONS is a carefully-constructed record that coolly ebbs and flows as Wilson makes his mark with this British institution.
