EDITORS’ NOTES

Jabbing synths, head-snapping drums and a side order of social issues—all of those things helped cement the former Genesis member’s position as the unassailable king of late ‘80s charts on this hugely confident fourth album. Whether he’s marshalling Latin-flavoured funk (“Saturday Night and Sunday Morning”) or wringing emotive gold from grim realism (“Another Day in Paradise”, “That’s Just the Way It Is”), Collins' ear for grown-up pop never deserts him.
