Phil Collins: No Jacket Required (1985)
No Jacket Required sounds really dated. At the time, it seemed to be in sync with the styles and sound of pop music. If you can overlook the drum machines and artificial sounds, you might be able to enjoy this record 30 years on. Phil has an uncanny ability to craft really compelling love ballads, and I suppose One More Night is a classic example, though I wouldn't say that I like this song. By the way, the only Collins record I own on CD is Face Value.
