When My Ship Comes In is the most sentimental and expressive song on the album, and a real highlight. Both style and mood match later Stiltskin albums, so that this album sort of paves the way for what would be coming from the new-formed Stiltskin without Lawlor. There is also a cello solo as a contrast to the destructive energy of the chorus. You will still fall of the couch when it happens! Horse The next track is about the burden of responsibility, under which someone breaks down.

A clear mutation moves to the fore during the sound, first in stronger drums, then in edgier vocals and finally in rough electric guitars. The drums drift into the background, the focus is on percussion. One may ask what all this has to do with Genesis. The song feeds on this power and the alternation between loud and quiet, between tension and release.
Dynamism, power and a well-balanced instrumental arrangement come together for a flawless song.

The final chorus with its easily discernible backing vocals cannot be topped anymore and brings an impressive masterpiece to its end. His drumming works well with the input of bass-player James Finnigan, who also seems to be into clean rhythms thw clear beats; you can hear that in his bass lines.

Genesis News Com [it]: Stiltskin – The Minds Eye – CD Review
It is about splitting up, being left behind, not being about to let the old love go. To achieve mknds, however, one needs to feel the album rather than listen to it.
Now we have reached the point where things could not be harder. A brief guitar solo right before the final chorus completes the song.
There were, however, some disputes between the band and the label and also between Ray Wilson and Peter Lawlor about financial aspects. America Now we have reached the point where things could not be harder. Quite a catchy song, and it was one of the singles from the album, albeit the less successful one.
The front man is Peter Lawlor; he plays the guitars that assume a central position on the album. Mysterious stiltskin the minds eye secretive — this is probably the best description for this track. America was, interestingly, the final track on the US version of the album, which gave it a special significance. Wilson has good range, but sings with a detachment that needs to be married to strong melodies to really work. There is a guitar solo before the chorus is repeated.
Because it is precisely not what one would expect. Horse The next track is about the burden of responsibility, under which someone breaks down. Since Wilson refounded Genesis in there have been remarkable releases, both live and studio albums, that are related to the Stiltskin sound but have evolved from it.

Scared Of Ghosts is a strong song that would fit in any Stiltskin show today and perhaps be a positive surprise at that.
The slightly convoluted lyrics point out that they do not mind much, though. Like a thunderstorm all the pressure breaks out and brings out the grunge sound. The introduction gives you the feeling that giant waves of guitars are breaking over your head, and the stiltskin the minds eye solo in the middle enhances that impression. Instrumentals like this may seem a bit unstructured, but it is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into this track, perhaps even more than into any other song on the album.
