Nice review. The piano in Firth of Fifth is some of my favourite ever, and SEBTP is my favourite Genesis album.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Booboo did you ever get into the 80's prog/pomp scene with bands such as Magnum, Ashbury, Twelfth Night, Pendragon, Marillion etc?

Not really no. Some good stuff from that era, but it's a bit too 80s for me, I prefer 90s stuff like Porcupine Tree, Spocks Beard, Flower Kings and Ozric Tentacles.

Marillion is very good though, they just have a rather annoying fanbase who think they're the best thing to ever happen to music in the past 30 years when they're basically just Genesis with David Gilmour.

Is 'Atom Heart Mother' worth getting? I saw it at Newbury Comics used for $6. I don't have anything from Saucerful of Secrets to Atom Heart Mother.

Yeah it is overblown but there are some nice passages of play on there but don't paymore than that as you probably wont play it much.

It's decent, its worth listening to at least for historical relevance, since it's the first album where they really started to develop their signature sound.

And by that you mean, "next to AMLOR and the final cut that thing is the biggest piece of shit they made." Seriously boo, Meddle was where it all started. Even Nick Mason agrees with me. And that's a GOOD album, worth paying at least $10 for anyways.

I wouldn't say it's shit.

I'd say it's more a cure for insomnia

Maybe not, but compared to most of their discography it doesn't hold up too well.
