No, feel free. I really only do the artists I like and know well (Gary Moore/Rory Gallagher/Marillion/Genesis/Eagles/Waits etc) but even if you wanted to do a discog on one I've done, it's always...

No, I only know two songs. They're okay, but I wouldn't know them well enough, or have enough interest in them to do a discog. Sorry.

Absolutely. If you read through the reviews here you'll see they started out as a real prog band - heavy on the mythological lyrics, long piano passages, epic songs, twelve-string guitars, flutes etc...

I could go on at length about Genesis, but I already have done and people are probably bored with it. But thanks for your comments, and I'll just say that yes, those two tracks are probably the...

Yeah well we'll agree to disagree I guess. The problem for me with Abacab was the unexpected-ness of it. Up to then, the boys had been tooling along fine - ATTW3, Duke - I mean, as I've mentioned...

All good things...

Nothing lasts forever. Footballers retire, film stars realise the party is over and it's time to go, and authors write their last book. So too with bands. No band will ever stay...

Okay then, time to wrap this up, and as I mentioned before, I'm left to bookend the discography with the debut and their final album. Here's the debut. If you've not heard it before, prepare to...

I'm of your mind really. I don't hate pop music, though I find a lot of it very surface (duh) with nothing to say to me. However I do have a problem with a band who essentially helped kickstart the...

Yeah I agree: a flawed maybe not masterpiece but certainly an opus. I'm quite fond of it (not as fond as I am of Duke though). I guess Phil gets the blame mostly because he was the one who had the...

Okay, well it seems in terms of Genesis the band - leaving aside any solo efforts I might look into later - we have three albums left. By a staggering coincidence, two of them are the debut and their...

And speaking of that 1983 album...

Yeah that's me. I have no real problem with Collins-era apart from Abacab, nor do I go it's either Fish or Hogarth, though I do of course hold that pre-Hodgson Supertramp was far superior to post....

Despite what I said earlier, it cannot be disputed that though Foxtrot got Genesis their first proper album chart placing, the next album yielded them their first ever hit single, and also...

As has been extensively documented, 1976 marked the end of an era for Genesis. Whereas they had begun as a five-piece, then a four, then back to a five, the lineup was by 1972 at least fairly stable...

ATTW3 is hardly the first Collins fronted album. That was back in 1976 with A Trick of the Tail and then Wind and Wuthering.

That is something I did not know, and I pride myself on being a history buff. I must look into that more. If you're right (and I have no reason to doubt you) then I guess I owe poor old Can-Utility...

You're right there. Nursery Cryme was the first Genesis album to get into the charts, and even then I expect few people knew of them. I reckon it's possible you have to wait till Selling England,...

At this point, the fine line between Genesis and Phil Collins as a solo artist blurs so much that the penultimate album to feature him could easily in most cases be mistaken as one of his. Bringing...

The very end of the 70s. I'm talking some guy called Gabriel Peter or something like that... not sure he worked out but they gave him a shot.
