There are some nice pieces on this album, as well as a couple that I ifind a bit ho-hum. Of all the Genesis albums that I DON'T have, this is probably the first one I would acquire. Somehow though it...

Ah, Foxtrot. What can I say about this album that has not already been said, and said better, by others?

Just one thing: I always feel sorry for "Can Utility and the Coastliners", being on the...

There are some decent tracks on Invisible Touch, but the title track is not one of them. The other single "Land of Confusion" I like better, though I find the lyrics a bit naive and amateurish.

On the Tabletop Genesis podcast, they interviewed Tony Banks, and he had this to say about John Mayhew (paraphrasing from memory): people listen to Trespass and they say what was wrong with Mayhew's...

I passed on Trespass for many years. I think I must have heard The Knife at some point (pun intended); I didn't like it on first hearing and I'm still not crazy about it, and that made it easy to...

Currently listening to A Curious Feeling. I think "The Lie" is my second favourite, thought most of the fans seem to prefer its sequel, "After the Lie". I particularly like the abrupt change of tempo...

There are two tracks on Abacab that I quite like: the title track, and "Like It or Not". "Me and Sarah Jane" is not too bad. The rest? I can quite happily live without them.

I tell anyone who will listen that A Curious Feeling is a terrific album and in some senses is like a lost Genesis album. It's the most Genesis-sounding of Tony's solo efforts, but also has its own...

I'll read your review later in more detail, but for the moment I just want to say that I think Lamb is my favourite Genesis, in the sense that it provides the most satisfying listen. I don't listen...

Broadly speaking, I agree with your assessment of the later albums. The self-titled one is the only one of those that I have.

I consider We Can't Dance as one of their worst... but it does have...
