No he's talking about the italian symphonic - gone - prog - metal  band. Anyway, GW is a very good band, with at least 3 four star albums. They  have changed their sound more than once, so if you'r looking for for high quality symphonic prog (and highly complex/technical) go for "Path of dreams". If you re looking for a more heavy (metal) approach with higly complex riffs and song structures, go for "Chimica" or "seduction of madness". their last two albums are very hard to get into, technical thrash metal

I found the tune Bride Of The Wind on the www.stickcenter.com website and I love it. It appears that same track is in the archive, it's a great instrumental. Of course I especially like it because I'm a stick player. Good stuff.

I don't know about the pre-genesis band, you could be right of course... "bride of the wind" is a track from their Path of dreams album although its very different from the other songs on the album.

1. 1993- Principium - very good - solid four stars plus half star for brilliant debut

2. 1994 - Path Of Dreams - excellent - masterpiece - 5 stars by all means

3. 1995 - Seduction Of Madness - very good - 4.5 stars - just a tick weaker than Path

4. 1997 - Chimica - 3 stars - mediocre - transitional, much heavier than previous, much more metal in it, but still not bad

5. 2002 - Forget The Colors - complete change of musical style and direction into heavy inaccessible avantgardish metal - 1 star in respect towards previous works

6. 2004 - Towards The Silence - same as no.5 - not a kind of music I would want to listen to again

I like the Path of Dreams...

But I tend enjoy Forget the Colors even more.

Yes, it was. "The Garden Wall" was a band with the members Chris Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Johnny Trapman and Tony Banks, Rivers Job and Anthony Phillips. At least that is what my "family tree" of Genesis (made by Hideyo Itoh and included in my Japanese "Nursery Cryme" CD) say.

Great band, the instrumental parts are awesome, maybe the theatrical voice is sometime  a let down, but the musicianship is great, recommended Seduction of madness - 1995 and Chimica - 1997.

A far as I know, Genesis was born of the merge of two bands:
  1. The Anon: Mike Rutherford, Anthony Phillips and Chris Stewart
  2. Gerden Wall: Peter Gabriel and Tony Banks

So Tony Phillips and Chris Stewart were on The Anon and not in The Garden Wall.

That's why in the track I Know What I like the lyric says: "Over the Garden Wall, two litttle love birds cuckoo to you"
