I couldn't find a thread for this mind boggling classic prog group, so I decided to make one since I'm really starting to get into them now! Here's a place to come discuss, question, celebrate, argue over, and take sides on Genesis! I personally hope to learn a lot here since I'm still somewhat new to them. Listening to Wind And Wuthering rn, so what's your opinion on this seemingly lost album? Love it? Hate Phil? Don't know it???
Two groundbreaking records in the whole new wave / post punk / art rock craze of the late 70s / early 80s. Brian Eno producing one and Steve Lillywhite producing the other, and I think Robert Fripp is found playing with both of these artists at some point. Which record do you choose?
For me it's COLLINS-era all the way baby! ALL THE WAY! :madra: I'm gonna reveal to you the dirtiest secret in prog rock, I'm gonna expose Gabriel-era Genesis as a naked fool's gold joke! Collins is a better musician for a start an amazing drummer and yes a better more melodic singer! Gabriel in Genesis by comparison is a wizardy jack-in-a-box keyboard dabbler with the voice of a bitter flesh-mongering jester who has seen better days! Gabriel is also a scullion, a fustilarian, a natural coward, a three inch fool and a monstrous carbuncle. He's also a leathern-jerkin, crystal-button, knot-paced, puke-stocking, gaddis-garter, drop-tongued ball-pouch! And further he is the doppelganger of 70's rock icon David Essex! http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/02/27/article-1254162-087BC6B7000005DC-361_468x438.jpg Peter Gabriel http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02668/Gabriel_2668021b.jpg David Essex To me the poptastic power of Invisible Touch blows away the ponderous squawking and rambling on the albums like Nursery Cryme and the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway! And there it is exposed for all to see, Gabriel-era Genesis is the KING'S CLOTHES! A naked liie!
