Genesis biography
Among the top classic prog rock bands of all times, GENESIS is most known in the prog scene for the superb line-up Peter GABRIEL, Phil COLLINS, Steve HACKETT, Mike RUTHERFORD and Tony BANKS, which played together from 1971's "Nursery Cryme" to 1974's "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway". After this extraordinary period GABRIEL left the band, but the progressive music quality remained the same untill HACKETT left the band. From that point on, under the popish influence of Phil COLLINS, the band took another path towards the commercial market...

Their best work was produced while Peter GABRIEL was with the band, and for a year after he left. Here is a GUIDE to their work from that period.

EARLY PERIOD:
"Trespass" (1970) was the band's second album, which featured Anthony PHILLIPS on guitar and John MAYHEW on drums. There are six songs here, all of which show glimpses of the power the band was to develop more fully later.

MIDDLE PERIOD:
"Nursery Cryme" (1971) shows the band struggling with their new mix of talent, and has a couple of weak songs. "Foxtrot" (1972) shows a more confident and accomplished band. "Selling England By The Pound" (1973) finds the band in a slightly mellower mood, with more acoustic work here on piano and guitar than before. "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" (1974) is arguably the band's finest album. It is a 90-minute theater piece filled with a wide variety of music and moods.

LATE PERIOD:
But the first two albums made in this period still managed to preserve enough of the band's "progressive" qualities to make them interesting to old fans. "A Trick Of The Tail" (1975) is a very strong album that still sounds good today. "Wind and Wuthering" (1976) is the last album made by the "old" GENESIS.

APOCRYPHA:
Several albums appeared in the 90s that fit well into the discography of the "old" GENESIS. ... "Genesis Archive: 1967-1975" / "Genesis Revisited" / "Genesis For Two Grand Pianos"

CONCLUSION:
One of the best "progressive" rock bands that rose to prominence in England in the early 70s.

Selling England By The Pound
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by Magnum Vaeltaja

4 stars No introduction needs to be made for this album. We all know it's a concept album and it's by Genesis and it's called Selling England by The Pound and 1973 and yadda yadda ya whatever other content you've read from the past thousand reviews this album has. So I'll cut to the chase and get to my rating and my rationale.

This is a flawed album. There's no doubt about it. "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight" and "The Cinema Show" are both very strong tracks, with great instrumental performances, intelligent composition and bounding with energy. "Firth of Fifth" is an undisputed masterpiece of the Genesis catalog, with atmospheric and moving instrumental parts. The other five songs on the album range from good but nothing special in the case of "After The Ordeal" to bland and overly lengthy in the case of "The Battle of Epping Forest". Altogether we find ourselves with about 10 minutes of perfect music, 20 minutes of very good music and 20 minutes of inconsistent music. In spite of the album's flaws, I'll give it four stars; an excellent addition to any prog rock collection, because that's what it is. No prog collection would be complete without "Firth of Fifth" but Selling England is no masterpiece with as much filler as it has. To end with a quatrain: "An injustice to rate it less, an injustice to rate it more, hence my decision to give it stars, a quantity of four".

3 stars Itīs very good to find those obscure tracks that were not released on albums by those artists you like. It can be filler stuff (and, in this case, it is), but itīs a joy to hear something from the Gabriel-era Genesis that I havenīt heard of after all these years. Ok, they were available in Brazil since Archive 1967-1975 was released in my country. Which didnīt mean that much since this 4 CD box set was way to expensive to buy for years. So, to the song: itīs a simple, acoustic track, with Gabriel and Collins singing together the funny lyrics. Some nice flute and 12 string guitars. Not par with their material before (Nursery Cryme), nor with their next (Foxtrot). Still a very good track for a b side. An interesting change of pace, between such elaborated material.

Not really essential, but good enough. Specially for early Genesis fanatics like me. 3 stars.

Three Sides Live

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I recently got this VHS from a friend, who had transferred it to DVD format. Its an interesting recording made during their Abacab tour (1981/82). But donÂīt be fooled by the title, since the track selection is not exactly the same as its namesake live album of the time. There are several tracks in common of course, but some are not complete and/or not shown during the concert: as it was fashion of the time, it looked more like a video clip, with bits being the soundtrack for sound checks, band members of stage, technicians tuning instruments and so on. Even radio interviews can be seen between songs (and sometimes, during the song). It really spoils what could have been a nice view of their concerts of that period.

Overall sound is good, but not excellent. The highlight is, definitely, In the Cage (Medley - Cinema Show - Slippermen), mot surprisingly the longest number, where they show how good they once were as songwriters and how they still could handle such complex material with ease. Of course all the performances are spotless, tight and strong, demonstrating quite well why the live line up of Collins/Banks/Rutherford/Stuermer/Thompson lasted until the very end.

If you like late 70Âīs/early 80Âīs Genesis,this is really something you should check out. Like others have said before, it would be very nice to have the full concert available in DVD, preferably including a few extra songs, with those backstage scenes and radio interviews thrown in as a separately bonus material in another part of the menu. That would have make it at least a four star video and an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection. As it is, however, itÂīs good, but non-essential.

Review by ProgressiveHypocrite

4 stars The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is because I don't think it is essential for any self respecting prog fan to own this album. If you just love music, then I think this is an excellent album to own and listen to. All you pretentious reviewers who gave this album one star should lower your expectations, because Genesis aren't ever going to release an album with extended mellotron passages and songs about flowers and volcanoes and blood on the rooftops. I used to look down upon their later work as well, but as I listened to this album more, i realized there wasn't a single bad track on the album. There's something here for everyone; ten-minute songs, radio friendly tunes, interesting meter/key changes... in fact, Tonight, Tonight, Tonight probably has the widest scope of any Genesis song since Supper's Ready. There's shades of Mama, In The Air Tonight, Man of Our Times; even The Musical Box, because of the change in the middle and the subject matter is a bit similar. Anyway, I'm winding a bit, so to wrap this up; if you aren't afraid to listen to different music, even if it's accessible and more radio-friendly than Selling England or The Lamb, then I recommend this album to you.

The Carpet Crawl
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

3 stars The Carpet Crawlers is one of Genesis best compositions (yes, the title is wrong on that cover), a real classic in an album that was much overrated in my opinion. It really shines where most of the album drags. The b side was the albums title track, The Lamb Lies On Broadway, another fine song. Although I still canÂīt really dig the double album that much, I must agree it has a fair amount of good material that seemed to be ruined by the poor production (Steve HackettÂīs re-recording of some of the tracks of the album in his Genesis Revised release seems to justify that opinion since those tunes are way better than the original ones. The new versions showing some fine sound landscapes that were not present on the 1974 release. Probably they were buried in the mix). Anyway, Carpet Crawlers and The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway are some of the exceptions (the others are In The Cage and Counting Out Time) and I think this single has very well chosen tracks. Again IÂīm really sorry it does not include any new or rare stuff to make it worth for non completionists and collectors. So, if you have the album (and you probably do), thereÂīs no reason why to try to find this single other than historical and collectible ones.

Rating: 3 stars for the high quality of the material. But really not essential, unless you are a hardcore fan who has to have anything theyÂīve released.

I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I know What I Like was the first song that gained some airplay in Brazil. It was in fact the first ever time I heard about this band, so I have a soft spot for it, although this is hardly a favorite since I came to know Genesis back catalog. I believe this single was released in my country, although I never saw it. As usual I had to rely on some of my sisterīs friends who had LPs of the top bands at the time. However, when I heard the LP I was hooked. Selling England By The Pound is my second favorite album by Genesis (Foxtrot being the first, of course). so I guess I would like this single for the inclusion of the beautiful Dancing With The Moonlight Knight. I believe itīs an edited version (it would be too long for a vinyl single, specially because it does include one more song, the acoustic More Fool Me).

All in all I think this might be a very fine single for the time, although if you had the LP youīd have all the songs. I guess the presence of a non LP track would make it much more valuable for Genesis fans in general and collectors in particular. So in the end this is much more an item for completionists than anything else. But Iīll give it 3 stars because of the high quality of the material and its historic relevance.

Entangled
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

4 stars GENESIS's "A Trick of the Tail" album is still one of my favorite albums from the band. I also think that it is their best recorded and mixed album from the seventies. Better recorded and mixed than their previous albums with Peter Gabriel, and even better in that respect than "Duke" (which was recorded in late 1979-early 1980). It was also their first album which was co-produced with David Hentschel, who worked with the band until 1980 in their "Duke" album.

"A Trick of the Tail" (1976) was also their album on which drummer Phil Collins became the lead singer of the band after Peter Gabiel left the band in 1975. The music became more accessible, and many fans didn't like that. I have to say that I prefer the albums the band released between 1976 and 1980, with their 1976-1977 period being their best period, in my opinion.

Both tracks of this single were taken from the "A Trick of the Tail" album. This single was released in France, a thing that I didn't know until today.

"Entangled", composed by Steve Hackett and Tony Banks, is a very good song with 12- string acoustic guitars (played by Hackett, Banks and Mike Rutherford) plus a very good final part with a mellotron and a synthesiser solo played by Banks. The song was played in concert by the band during their 1976 tour to promote the album, with Hackett introducing the song to the audience, saying that the lyrics were inspired by a painting by Kim Poor (who later became his wife for more than 25 years) and that they described "the perils that you might encounter on a psychiatric couch" (more or less as I remember now). The band released a live version of this song from 1976 in their "Archives 1976-92" Box Set in the year 2000.

"Entangled" was also released as a single in the U.S. with "Ripples" in the Side "B".

The B-side, "A Trick of the Tail", the title track of the album, is a song composed by Tony Banks, with lyrics about an alien who comes to the earth. It is a simple song with piano, guitar, bass, drums, and lead and backing vocals. This song was released as the "A" Side of another single in the U.K. (with "Ripples" on the Side "B"), but was used as the "B" Side of this single in France.

The "A Trick of the Tail" album was released in 2-February-1976 (forty years ago).

Genesis Live
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by VianaProghead

4 stars Review Nš 45

In the early of 1973, Genesis allowed the taping of a couple of live radio shows, most of them were taken from their albums up 1972, and where their previous fourth studio album "Foxtrot", released also in the same year, was represented. A few months later, their record label Charisma records, in the mid of 1973, persuaded the band to release a live album, from that same taped performance, as a title to mark time while the group was recording what would be their new fifth studio album "Selling England By The Pound", to be released in 1973. However, the group had no plans to release a live album at that moment, especially because all the band members were somewhat extremely busy preparing their new studio work. Anyway, they agreed with Charisma records and the result was this debut live album.

"Genesis Live" became a cult album for Genesis fans, especially for those who consider that the group ended with Peter Gabriel's departure from the group. "Genesis Live" is the first live album released by Genesis and is also the only official live document from the group with Gabriel still in the line up of the band, until the 1998's release of "Genesis Archive 1967-75". "Genesis Live" was recorded in the "Foxtrot" live tour of 1973, shortly before the band's upcoming new studio album, "Selling England By The Pound" see the light of the day.

"Genesis Live" is a live album composed by only five tracks. The first track "Watcher Of The Skies" and the second track "Get'Em Out By Friday" are both two live versions of two original songs recorded on their third studio album "Foxtrot" released in 1972. The third track "The Return Of The Giant Hogweed" and the fourth track "The Musical Box" are both two live versions of two original songs recorded on their third studio album "Nursery Crime" released in 1971. The fifth track "The Knife" is a live version of an original song recorded on their second studio album "Trespass" released in 1970.

In relation to the track selections chosen to be included on "Genesis Live", I'm going to write some lines about them. I'm going to analyse the album's tracks following the chronological order of the songs and not the order which they were presented on the album. "The Knife" is an excellent choice because is the best song recorded on "Trespass" and is also, in my humble opinion, the first masterpiece made by the band. Compared with the original studio version, we can say that it's a killer track, because is much more aggressive than the original version. It's the track with a more significant rearranging, probably due to the new band members' participation. Steve Hackett and Phil Collins played the song, replacing Anthony Philips and John Mayhew, respectively. This track is without any doubt, one of the highest moments on the album and represents a great closing to it. "The Musical Box" is another great choice because is one of the best themes composed by the band and is also my second favourite song on "Nursery Crime", after "The Fountain Of Salmacis". This is also one of the Genesis' songs most played live by the group and by their band members when they are playing as solo artists. "The Return Of The Giant Hogweed" is also a very good choice and is my third favourite song on "Nursery Crime", although isn't as good as "The Fountain Of Salmacis" and "The Musical Box" are. However, this live version is also very interesting as always they are. "Watcher Of The Skies" is also another great choice because is one of the best songs of the group, and this live version is, in my humble opinion, better than the original version. It's also one of the favourite songs from the band and it's also one of the songs most played live by the group and their band members, when they play as a solo artists. "Get'Em Out By Friday" sounds even more theatrical here than it does on the original version. It's really fascinating listen to Peter reinventing his vocalizations in such a clever manner. He overdoes the pronunciation a bit and obviously he gets a lot of fun to himself doing it.

Conclusion: As I wrote before, "Genesis Live" isn't properly an original album recorded live by the band but a series of live tapings taken from a couple of live shows for a broadcast in America as part of the King Biscuit Flower Hour. Therefore, "Genesis Live" don't have the consistency of a true live album. On the other hand, despite the group and their record label are conditioned to the existing live tapes, I believe that they could have replaced "Get'Em Out By Friday", which is my less favourite song on this album, by other song. The original King Biscuit broadcast included their great epic, the most famous and the best song made by Genesis, "Supper's Ready". Anyway, "Genesis Live" remains, without any doubt, a very interesting and important live document from the band, especially because it's one of the rare pieces of music where we can listen to Gabriel singing live in Genesis. However, I'm not able to rate "Genesis Live" as a masterpiece. So, for the reasons explained before by me, I've rated this album with only 4 stars.

Prog is my Ferrari. Jem Godfrey (Frost*)

Review by Quinino

5 stars My ALL-TIME Greatest #21

I LOVE Selling England, I LOVE The Lamb, but I simply ADORE Foxtrot, one of the few albums I (still) know all the lyrics by heart.
And with 2 copies of the LP nearly destroyed, this says much about the hundreds of times the needle touched the vinyl till the CD form arrived in 1985, one of the first I bought back then.

Global Appraisal

Genesis during its golden age from 1970 up until 1976 (with and without PG) created a body-of-work with an uninterrupted level of quality of legendary proportions: 7 albums in a row of musical bliss.
Need we prefer this to that one? NO, absolutely not, take them all and rejoice!
I could, in fact, pack them all together as one of my all-time greatest choices (and maybe include the ATTWT from 1978 as a curiosity bonus)

Goodies

Everything.

Turn It On Again - The Hits
Genesis Symphonic Prog

Review by martindavey87

4 stars This compilation may not be every Genesis fans dream come true, but for me, this is basically the soundtrack to my childhood.

Of the two Genesis eras, I have to say I'm more of a Phil Collins guy, and rather enjoy their more commercial material. On display here is pretty much all their biggest hits from that era. Many of these came out when I was no more than four or five years old, and it was through my parents that I was exposed to the greatness that is Genesis. In fact, one of my earliest memories was seeing the classic video for 'I Can't Dance' when I was just a toddler on the kitchen TV.

Songs such as 'Turn It On Again', 'No Son of Mine' and 'Jesus He Knows Me' are some of the earliest songs I can remember from my childhood, and later songs like 'Congo' and 'Carpet Crawlers '99' are welcome additions to this compilation.

This may not appeal to every Genesis fan out there, especially the more prog-diehard fans, but this is a great album for the casual listener. Mixing nicely between rock and pop music, fans of any musical genre will find something to enjoy here, and the great thing about this era of Genesis is that EVERYONE must know at least one song from this track list, proving that there truly is a bit of Genesis in everyone.
