To me it's even better than wind and wuthering. Just check the synth solo in the first song.

I like the album. It's not my favorite, but I like it.

Duke is my favorite. Great album!

    It seems as if I am in the minority for liking "And Then There Were Three" (and "Duke"), but by no means does it go near the top of the list. It is very enjoyable, but when compared to everything before it, it pales. As members were removed, so was the quality.

I'll admit to not giving And Then There Were Three the amount of listens I probably should, but it's not the worst Genesis album in my opinion.

I'll have to give this one a spin really soon because it's stuck between two of my favorite albums - Wind & Wuthering and Duke, which are both really good!

I'm not sure if by the time the album was recorded Phil Collins was into his solo career but it has that poppy feel in the slower songs like in your own special way. I particularly like the faster ones.

You know, in the Phil Collins-era, I give this one high marks. I especially love the opening track, "Down And Out". Other great songs: "Burning Rope", "Deep In The Motherlode" and "The Lady Lies". Unfortunately for this album, "Follow You Follow Me" always gets the attention and finds it's way onto many a Genesis greatest hits package. Confused
 
My favorite Phil era studio albums in order:
 
1- A Trick of the Tail
2- Wind & Wuthering
3- Duke
4- And Then There Were Three
5- Abacab
6- Genesis
7- Invisible Touch
8- We Can't Dance
 
Keep in mind, IMO all the PG-era albums are better than the PC-era, and 'Calling All Stations' is probablly better than Invisible Touch and We Can't Dance. At least that's what I'd tell a prog novice. Tongue

You know what song really rules on "And Then There Were Three" ?
Say It's Alright Joe.
 
Man, that song is suicidal. I like the weird stuff.
 
Also, "Get out of the way fat man, you've got something to do", ughh...it's called......can't remember. Something like "Go West Young Man". Really killer killer Rutherford song. Deep in the Motherloade? Is that it?

It's just OK, has some good songs, some bad ones, and some boring ones. "Snowbound" is awful, I've never liked that song.

I think Phil did not start his solo career until AFTER Duke, when he had more reasons to write music. Infact, I'm pretty sure his cover of "Behind The Lines" was on his first album in 1980 or 1981.

This album is pure class, one could only wish that a band's level of creativity could even come close to this 1978 masterpiece after so many years. To the most creative band of all time!!!

Its an album I've liked for a long time.Banks,Rutherford and Collins had plenty to prove after the departure of Hackett.It was just after punk was changing the face of the musical landscape.It really could have gone tits up but the remaining G Boys come out swinging for me.Ultra tight playing with a production that highlights the patented Genesis wall of sound and most importantly some cracking songs.A great mixture of 'commercial' radio friendly songs and short classic epics this album works beautifully.Its the last Genesis album I can happily listen to in its entirety.Duke showed a few too many cracks and the dam burst when they made the excrement of Abacab.

Abacab makes the Porcupine Tree's and Neil Morses of today look tardy.....Genesis evolved until Invisible Touch ( that was regression) and even then tried really hard with WCD and CAS but Abacab was above the averages.....excrement my arse.

It is a very good album,far better than some people think,I really like 'Deep in the Motherlode' and the live version is excellent. I would'nt say it was my favourite though - A Trick of the Tail would be up there somewhere.

Well said, I like Abacab, I don't know why it gets such bad press here.

LOL
Well, I don't find it to be that amazing of an album, but it's certainly very good and sadly underrated/overhated.

Abacab was Genesis giving up as far as I'm concerned.Porcupine Tree and Neal Morse are both making albums way better than that ...ermmmm...'thing'.
