Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Genesis`first single, released in February 1968.

The songs of this and their next single ("A Winter`s Tale"/ One-Eyed Hound") were released for the first time in a L.P called "Rock Roots: Genesis" (Decca Records ROOTS 1), in the same Mono versions s when they were released as singles. As I have this L.P., which I bought in late 1981, I can write reviews about them.

"The Silent Sun", which also appeared in the "From Genesis to Revelation" album in the Mono and Stereo versions, is a very good song, a ballad with acoustic guitars and piano, with a very good orchestral arrangement done by Arthur Greenslade. I still think that there are some differences with the album version, at least in the duration of the song (2:15 minutes the single version, 2:07 minutes the album version). Some people say that both are the same version with Chris Stewart on drums, but I still think that they are different, not only in the mixing. Maybe the single version is a bit slow than the album version, but the version included in the Stereo version of the L.P. is better due to the Stereo mix, which adds some "atmosphere" to the song.

"That`s Me" is, IMO, a very representative example of a song written by teenagers, still looking for an "adult identity", and maybe, for a "band identity". It has a lead guitar well played by Anthony Phillips, plus acoustic guitar and piano. Drummer Chris Stewart was good too.

This was a good single, which, maybe with more adecuate publicity and promotion, could have been successful. Unfortunately, their producer, IMO, didn`t have then enough vision to promote the band better.

Both songs are obviously not very "Progressive" in style, as the style of the band was still in development.

1 stars "The Silent Sun" is one of the lamest tracks on the Genesis debut, pure pop drivel with heavy strings adding nothing but cheesiness. Sounding like a Spinal Tap "Flower People" parody the track offers up the most sappy, pleading "baby baby" chorus. Flip side "That's Me" certainly doesn't save it although it does rock a bit more and features a nice, sloppy little guitar solo and a certain Stones inspired coolness. Completely forgettable material for completists only, unless you can hear it as bonus tracks on some "Revelation" CD issues. The debut album has plenty of period charm but virtually none was apparent on this single.

4 stars THE SILENT SUN and THAT'S ME were written in 1967. This year was a crucial turning point in the sixties. Before 1967 rock was simpler, naive, accessible, radio and dance oriented.... but in 1967 (thanks to the Beatles/George Martin's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) rock began to incorp ...

4 stars THE SILENT SUN and the b-side THAT'S ME were written in 1967, but were only released in february next year. It is no use to compare them to the band's 70's Progressive Rock stuff or to the band's 80's Pop/Synth-Pop stuff, because in 1967 neither Progressive Rock nor Synth-Pop existed. So th ...

2 stars I obtained a copy of this way back around the time of the foxtrot tour. What we have is a competent but hardly surprising 60's pop single by some kids calling themselves Genesis. Most of you will know what this sounds like from the later versions of the Genesis to revelation record which has ... (read more)

3 stars HI, for teenagers of 17 years old, the song are very good! The silent sun: 8/10 --> First, the sound it's very good for '68. The song begin with piano, very cool intro, and peter gabriel voice start. His voice is very beautiful. Later in the song, there are violon add by Jonathan King I think a ... (read more)
