  1. Testify is a perfect album for anyone who still treasures Face Value, Hello, I Must Be Going and No Jacket Required.
  2. Testify is full of laid-back, better-than-average adult-contempo fare, and the subtle, atmospheric production sure beats the slickness of his Eighties records.

    There is little... to compare with either the work of his Genesis heyday or his still heartbreaking 1981 solo debut. [#12, p.139]
  4. 20
    Collins... sounds dated with his glossy production, precision session-playing and radio-friendly songs all done by numbers with a great big hole where a heart should be. [Dec 2002, p.129]
  5. Middle-age is no excuse for such an unforgivably bland collection of over-emoted love songs. [Dec 2002, p.102]
  6. 20
    Testify really doesn't work. [Dec 2002, p.122]

    I guess it's a good album, the only really great tracks are Can't Stop Loving You and Wake Up Call, the others only show his versatile songwriting ability Full Review »
