Phil Collins - Dance into the Light (1996) Retail CD
After the personal and exprimental "Both Sides" Phil went back to his trademark sound again with horns and happy vibes with "Dance Into the Light" in 1996, the album was a mix of dance-pop and sensitive ballads. If you look at the cover you'll find out that it was the first time you didn't see Phil's head shot on the cover, but rather a full profile of him. It was a new-start for him, and he took his freedom to explore some African music along the way. The idea was to make a personal version of Paul Simon's 1986 album "Graceland" with inflerunts from all over the world.
"Dance Into the Light"more… the title track is a very happy uptempo song, it sound like "Hand in Hand" from Face Value but this time around with lyrics and even more dance feeling. It was a rather big hit in Europe in 1996. "That's What I said" is a good old Collins song, a midtempo rock-pop song about love. "Lorenzo" is what's new with Collins on this album, it's a world music song with African infleunted drums and sound all over it. Sound like taken from "The Lion King" or something. "Just Another Story" is jazzy with piano and horns, but melancholy. I like this song alot. "Love Police" is a uptempo song, not the best here but alright. "Wear My Hat" was a minor hit, and it's rather unique. Sound like taken from the movie "The Mask" or somnthing. It's funny and catchy, surprising that Collins released it. "It's in Your Eyes" is a ballad, one of few here. "Oughta Know by Now" is a midtempo with 80's feeling, with drums, horns, synths and a awesome guitar solo. "Take me Down" sound like "My Hat". "The Same Moon" is another ballad, musically it's very beautiful with a guitar solo. "River So Wild" follows the Africa path. "No Matter Who" is a midtempo song, quite forgettable but ok. Last song "The Times they're A Changin" is a Bob Dylan cover, he does it very well with a cathcy 90's feeling to it. Collins make it his own.
Overall, a great comeback afer "Both Sides". This album experience a new side of Collins again with world music and many catchy uptempo songs. This album is rather underrated, cause it's beautiful to listen to but also entertaining with it's immense diversity. If you liked older albums, I'm sure you will enjoy this one aswell.
