No Jacket Required by Phil Collins

After watching Phil Collins’ starring role in Buster, it seemed about time to do another album from the man himself. Of this album, I knew Sussudio and One More Night (a song that I love even if it sounds really outdated now), so the rest of it was a bit of an adventure. I quite liked it. Phil seems to be one of those artists that it’s cool not to like, but I can’t see anything wrong with this album - a collection of nice, solid 80s pop songs with a couple of stand-outs. What’s not to like?

Face Value by Phil Collins

Only knew one song from the album. It was a heck of a lot darker and more experimental than I’d expected. Moody, full of saxophones and that bluesy sound. Good though.
