If you are considering divorcing a rock star, let Hello, I Must Be Going!
serve as fair warning of what you're likely to face once the papers have been signed and the settlements made. Collins got the last word on sundering his relationship with first wife Jill (he actually addresses her by name on the album!), and managed to deliver it to millions of homes via this album, which contains one blistering diatribe after another: "I Don't Care Anymore," "I Cannot Believe It's True," "Do You Know, Do You Care?," and "It Don't Matter to Me." The mood is tempered a bit by a lively remake of the Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love" and "Like China," a sprightly rocker celebrating new love. Yet as listenable and engaging as it is, Hello, I Must Be Going!
has to be regarded as one of the angriest albums in mainstream rock history. Great stuff, when you're in the mood for that sort of thing. --Daniel Durchholz
