Collectors information & Description: 

  The album Abacab continues Genesis sharp stylistic jump, begun by the band on its preceding album Duke, away from their progressive rock style of the 1970s and toward a radio-friendly pop music sound. As such, Abacab is still viewed today with mixed opinions from both fans and critics. But the band members say that the change in musical direction, beginning with 1980's Duke and continued with Abacab, was necessary for the band's survival in the changing musical climate they found themselves in. Despite the change, songs like the title track, "No Reply At All," "Keep It Dark" and "Man on the Corner" were all respectable hit singles. And while Abacab may have cost Genesis some fans, they earned many others,
