Man, that's pretty great. I, like most people that listen to Genesis, tend to gravitate towards the Phil Collins stuff. But the older, more proggy Peter Gabriel songs are pretty great!

Y-you're joking, right? I assume you mean similar in that they're both in a loosely similar genre of music.

Yeah, they have a somewhat similar sound at the beginning, but listen to them all the way through. Follow You Follow Me never really goes anywhere beyond that basic sound, whereas Stagnation explores all kinds of different moods. It's crazy to think it's a song written by a bunch of 20-year-olds -- a lot of the music on Trespass has a sort of weary sophistication between suited to people twice that age.

I'm listening to Dodo/Lurker right now.

I like the variety of instruments and the overall sense of menace and urgency throughout.

Also, I must admit that I prefer both Genesis and Peter Gabriel after the two entities went their separate ways. I've grown to enjoy progressive rock over the last ten years, but new wave has been a favorite of mine for a lot longer, and I love it when the two genres come together (as in Duke, Yes's Drama, Rush's Signals, etc.). Heck, it was The Buggles (and Parish's revelations about their brief stint in Yes) that got me interested in prog in the first place!

This thread is making me feel really bad about the fact that for the longest time, the only Genesis I knew was 90s Genesis. We Can't Dance sort of embodies my childhood, due to my mom having it playing in the car anytime my parents drove anywhere. Sh-should I be made at her? I need to figure out if she liked their older stuff at all. I'm guessing not.

That's Phil, dude. Peter Gabriel left two years before that tour.

And yeah, Phil has admitted that he doped up a lot in those days. He said there was one time he went out on stage and completely forgot all the words to all the songs until the very last second and the sheer terror of the experience scared him straight. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

True enough. I'm generally more partial to the Fish-era for stuff like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0WIY1z13jg&feature=related) and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ae0iAqy7u94&feature=related) (and maybe this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ptlMRAqgXo&feature=related)). The h era does have good stuff as well although I find I enjoy the poppier stuff from that line-up (like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5mLCuG4gbM) and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FjYmpGM4VA)).

I like the composition of the music from Fish's era, but the production values and the baroque lyrics have aged really badly. I lived and breathed those albums in college but find it increasingly difficult to go back to anything older than Clutching at Straws outside of concert recordings.

Hogarth took a while to grow on me, but Marbles (the full double-length edition) may be my favorite album ever and definitely gave me my best concert experience ever (at the Fillmore, standing about five feet from stage directly in front of Hogarth). Maybe it's just because I'm getting old, but I appreciate a lot of the moodier work the band does this way, i.e. This Train is My Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GqSynUmCns), Somewhere Else (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5Zv7WH5cRg&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL32C3BCCE7EB0B570), etc.... though they can be pretty great when they drift closer to radio-friendly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNxaXqxxLig), too.

Yeah, I definitely have the same reaction. When I was poking around for links, I actually passed on a few that I presumed would be a slam dunk.

Have you checked out the 6-disc Early Stages box set? It's a snapshot of Fish's tenure across five concerts ranging from the band's very early career to right up until Fish left. It hits almost all the notable songs, but they lack the overly produced sound of the studio albums.

Of course, there are still a few (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZY1qz8F_-lk) Fish tracks that hold up even from the studio. And Assassing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqqkR2vqUZ8) is probably his high point as a lyricist.

No, but that definitely sounds worth a listen. Thanks for the heads up.

It seems like Genesis has cool ideas, but I think the only song by them I can really get into is "I Can't Dance". There's something about it that is just so irresistible.

Oh wow, I've never really ever talked with people that actually liked Genesis. Have....I found a place to call my own?

Like most bands I've come to love over the years, I started listening to the band as a part of an ironic twist, knowing only stuff like "Land Of Confusion" until one day at work, sirius radio's classical vinyl station played this really strange, long wispy song. It was called "The Musical Box", I quickly bought the box set that had all the Peter albums and fell in love.

I'm not much of a proghead, one of the testamonials in the box set comes from a comedian named David Baddiel, who explained how listening to the band rocked his punk rock roots (as it has done to my own!):

They went under the banner of the hated term progressive rock, but unlike Yes, ELP, Gentle Giant, King Crimson, Tangerine Dream and - I don't know - Van der Graaf Fucking Generation, you could strip away all t he electronics, all the instrumentation, all the virtuoso soloing, and the tune would still move you.

And that summed up how I felt about the band.

Got this track from Duke, which is easily their best album as a trio to me, it plays like some sort of sophisticated musical about going from something small and being swept up into this television world of production and confusing, bewildering things (kind of like the band!). It has the three musicians all coming into their own after (Alliance Admiral) Steve Hackett left. Phil starts writing lyrics, Tony learns some restraint and starts to back off on the huge productions just a small bit (something that kind of chokes out Lamb at times, and DEFINITELY kills "And then there were three"), and Mike learns how to bust out a pretty good solo or two finally in Duke's travels.

For those that aren't aware, there's a Genesis tribute band called The Musical Box that occasionally does as faithful as they can get it recreations of the early elaborate Gabriel-era shows, down to actually buying and using the original props/slides/etc.
