    Genesis were really good before mr Collins decided it was a good idea to take up singing.

    I need to add Genesis to my collection as bad as I need to add Peter Gabriel, which I really need to add. :)

    I would highly recommend "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway".
    This is a concept album about a person named Rael. Only
    someone like Peter Gabriel could come up with this. If this
    album were to be made into a movie, David Lynch should
    direct it!

    Other noteworthy albums would be "Foxtrot" which contains the
    23 minute long epic 'Supper's Ready'. Also, "Selling England
    by the Pound", "A Trick of the Tail". All these records came out
    during the 70's before Genesis became a 'pop' band. That does
    not necessarily mean their later albums are not good, they have
    their moments as well.

    I also really dig their last (and possibly final) album, "...Calling All
    Stations..." This is the record they did after Phil left the band.

    Enjoy!......

    From what I heard, after Gabriel left, Genesis went from prog to pop. So, I figure Gabriel-Era is muchos better... I haven't heard any of there music yet. I got Lamb Lies Down and Selling England downloaded, I just haven't gotten around to listening to em. I probably should really soon.

    and Trick of the Tail is the only good album with Colins doin the vocals...

    Wow That's cool!!! :headbang:
    Collins isn't a bad singer but i don't like the way he went with genesis

    indeed as said "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" is a masterpiece, the best concept album ever , after Operation Mindcrime.
    I would recommend "Trespass" too, their first album...
    Marillion listened to lots of Genesis, Fish probably had a picture of Peter Gabriel over his bed.

    Peter Gabriel-era Genesis is just as good as Peter Gabriel solo.....in other words, fucking great! I'm not into the Phil Collins-fronted stuff, as it's too soft and it's much too different from the 70's stuff, and totally loses the magic that made the 70's Genesis so damn cool.

    Marillion is increible, Fish-era is amazing, the influence of genesis is strong but they have his own style.
    Misplaced Childhood it's an awesome and outstanding album
