Media coverage

[1]

The [2]

Phil Collins sang during "Invisible Touch", "And though she will fuck up your life, you'll want her just the same." Collins has sung this as part of many Genesis concerts.[2] BBC presenter Jonathan Ross was required to apologize on air for the expletives used by Collins and Johnny Borrell and vowed to give them a "talking to".[3] Many however doubted Ross' sincerity as his initial on air apology jokingly referred to "the fruity language used by punk rock godfathers Genesis".
