"In the continuity of his first solo album, Phil Collins delivers with "Hello... I Must Going" a solid and pleasant album that confirms his success."

After a smashing entry in the hits parades with his first solo album, Phil Collins comes back the following year with a "Hello, I Must Be Going" in the line of its predecessor. On the other hand, no stars such as Eric Clapton, to accompany him, the Englishman, is satisfied with his close guard with in particular the indestructible Daryl Stuemer on the guitar.

The album opens with the original 'I Don't Care Anymore', which is in the vein of the interplanetary hit 'In The Air Tonight', with its fearsome darkness and refined character. This new hit is a kind of imprint of Phil Collins and gives him a real personality. This dark aspect will be found on several tracks, such as 'Do You Know, Do You Care? which also allow him to distinguish himself from Genesis. Note that on these tracks as on most of the others, the work of the bass player John Giblin is remarkable.

The other hit is 'You Can't Hurry Love', a cover of The Supremes from 1966 (Diana Ross era). This is the other side of Phil Collins in general and this album in particular, namely the catchy songs with effective horns. The melodic talent of the drummer/vocalist is brilliant on all the tracks. We find the same class and the same sobriety that it is on the purified titles, the soft ballads which smell good a romanticism tinted of melancholy ('Thru These Walls') or on the slightly funky pop titles ('I Can Not Believe It's Thru', 'It Don't Matter to Me'). There is also 'The West Side', a high-flying instrumental with a seductive melody that could be heard in a commercial.

On the whole album, sensitivity and emphasis are present with the characteristic sound and vocals that make Phil Collins, who will take a lot of criticism from the early Genesis fans, a recognizable artist. Even if the success of this second album is a little less than "Face Value", we can note the constancy of a Phil Collins who is globally a little darker but still effective and unifying. With multiple gold and platinum records all over the world and the monumental success of "You Can't Hurry Love", he strikes a new blow and shows an undeniable know-how.

MELODIC HARD ROCK - This opus won't change the face of hard rock but it is nevertheless a beautiful testimony of it, successfully marrying melodies and dynamism.
KHYMERA: The Grand Design (2015)
A.O.R. - After eight years of silence, Khymera returns with a beautiful album of melodic hard rock, classic but invigorating.
