5 stars Born in 1950, Tony Banks was one of the founders of the greatest money-shaking band, Genesis. Since the band was founded in 1965, it has been a silent devotee and powerful force behind the band. His classical tendency to have a serious and strong keyboard style makes the cause unique, but he always keeps a low profile, is not the limelight, is very devoted to music, and never shows off himself by showing off his skills. His solo album is also worth studying, especially the preference for classical symphony has made his own work full of classical tastes, and often plays with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This year's new album "5" continues this classical symphonic style. There are no guitar bass drums, symphonic and chanting forms are permeated throughout, and the piano and organ ensemble exemplifies beautiful, smooth classical music combined with progressive rock music. The harp added a sense of agitation, and Horn and Sachs added a mellow flavor to the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and Choir. After listening to this work, I can only use the word noble to describe Tony. These classical works prove that he is not only a member of the root ESIS. Through his tenacity and unyielding spirit, he has achieved his own success. Even he is so low-key, may be able to make his success longer. Listening to these five songs is like a great, peaceful baptism, but it is also full of glory and passion. This is undoubtedly Tony's best work, worth listening to every one love music (not just avant-garde rock) listening, a solid four-and-a-half strong push!
