N eed I say what a great little pop song this is... Sure it sounds like the work of Phil Collins, but why split the few remaining hairs left to us? “Throwing It All Away” and “In Too Deep” were two of the tightest tracks on Invisible Touch, and kept the band very visible indeed. (In fact, it’s possible the placement of the UPC sticker over Phil’s face on the picture sleeve I own may have been a personal statement from one oversaturated store clerk.) The B side is the nonalbum instrumental “Do The Neurotic,” which feeds the lurking suspicion that the band’s prog chops had been chipped away by inactivity. It’s not bad, but “Dance on a Volcano” it ain’t. Note that the A side (which correctly lists the run time at 3:41) is identical to the elpee version (which mistakenly lists the run time at 4:41).
