Abacab is that one album that proggies love to hate but give me a break. No Reply at All is an excellent song. Proggies just seem to really hate 80s pop for some reason, because they blame it for killing prog I guess.
It's understandable. I never fault people for liking one or the other. I am just very obsessive about hearing an entire band's history start to finish if I really like even one album. That led me to listening to all of Genesis's stuff, and I still found music I like in their pop years.

I'm glad to hear Trick of the Tail gets some love, though...I always thought that deserved to be up their with their classics.

I agree Trick of the Tail is a great album, as is Wind & Wuthering. I've yet to hear ...And Then There Were Three, but I have heard Duke and Abacab. Both have a few good songs ("Misunderstanding" is excellent, "No Reply at All" is pretty good), but overall I really don't enjoy those two albums. Beyond that I've only heard the singles from the rest of the 80s and early 90s.

My favorite Genesis...the stretch on The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway from "Hairless Heart" to "Anyway"... Unbelievably great songs in there, they nearly all give me chills. Those are my most played tracks by these guys. Too bad that only makes 7 of the 22 tracks on that album. The rest are good but no match for those 7.

About time this thread popped up! Although I'm in the minority here, my personal favorite Genesis album is most definitely Trespass. Very striking yet underrated transitional work that sounds unlike anything else they'd ever do.

I can't believe that neither. but hey thanx

Hey I don't mind Ray, he has his place in Genesis history, it just unfutunately came at the end where Tony and Mike were tired of touring and really didn't want to start all over. Hypothetically speaking, they should had gotten Fish for lead singer, that would of pulled in a lot of Prog fans in from both band's fan bases, and if they put an Prog album out like Nursery Cryme they would had hit pay dirt - I'm just dreaming. I was a little put out when Chester ask to be a full memeber in the band at the time of Station to Station came out, but Tony and Mike said no. I thought he paid his dues.

I don't care for Trey or Phish so I wasn't motivated to playt those vids tonight tonight oh but if you want to know the best tribute band of Genesis imo it is The Musical Box from Canada - to some just like the real thing to others better then the real thing. I found these interesting, maybe you won't maybe you will, but it's all this behind the scenes stuff for a tribure band (it's like a hobby gone out of control,) they really did their best to reproduce the experience of seeing Genesis live in the 1970's.

I've heard that Gabriel once took his kids to see The Musical Box and told them that "this is what daddy used to do".

Haha, awesome. I've never heard The Musical Box, I'll check out those vids later on.

I can't vote. Not because there are some I haven't heard, but because of the ones I like, I kind of like them all equally.
