The album marks a sharp stylistic jump, begun by the band on its preceding
album Duke, away from their progressive rock style of the 1970s and toward
a radio-friendly pop music sound. As such, "Abacab" is still viewed today with
mixed opinions from both fans and critics. But the bandmembers say that the
change in musical direction, beginning with 1980's "Duke" and continued with
"Abacab," was necessary for the band's survival in the changing musical
climate they found themselves in. Despite the change, songs like the title
track, "No Reply At All", "Keep It Dark" and "Man on the Corner" were all
respectable hit singles. And while Abacab may have cost Genesis some fans,
they earned many others, with the album hitting UK #1 and US #7, selling
several million copies worldwide and becoming the band's first Platinum selling
album in the US.

Another element of Abacab is drummer Phil Collins's more 80s approach of his
drum sound, involving reverberation, noise gates and compression in order to
achieve a loud and authoritative percussive effect. This continued a trend
Collins developed along with engineer Hugh Padgham on his solo hit single "In
the Air Tonight", as well as the piece "Intruder" from former bandmate Peter
Gabriel's third album.

In addition to pounding rock, Abacab incorporates upbeat, accessible music -
an increasingly important element in Genesis's style at the time. "No Reply At
All" features the Earth, Wind & Fire horn section (as did Collins' solo album
Face Value earlier in 1981), and even "Dodo/Lurker," whose adventurous
lyrics recall traditional Genesis, features a funky rhythm, propelled by Tony
Banks's keyboards.

After years of using outside record producers, Genesis produced Abacab
solely by themselves, while limiting further than before the number of solo
compositions in favor of the group-written pieces. They also had the
expertise of engineer Hugh Padgham, who assisted Collins on Face Value and
would continue to work on Genesis and Collins recordings through the end of
the decade.

The album takes its name from an early arrangement of the musical parts that
make up the title track. Guitarist Mike Rutherford said on the US radio show
In the Studio with Redbeard (which spotlighted Duke and Abacab in one
episode): "There were three bits of music in Abacab, and we referred to them
as 'section a', 'section b', and 'section c'... and at different times, they were
in different order. We'd start with 'section a' and then have 'section c'... and
at one point in time, it spelled Abacab. On the final version, it's not that at all,
it's like 'Accaabbaac'."

Due to its daring shift in style, Abacab is generally considered one of Genesis'
most important releases, and was a springboard for future hit albums Genesis
and Invisible Touch. The band had been influenced by the punk/new wave
revolution in Britain insofar as what they were now offering fans was a set of
minimalist, bare, punchy songs, much more in step with the pop charts than
Genesis had ever been before.
