Say It's Alright Joe. Man, that song is suicidal.
 
Good call pointing out this ignored classic. "S.I.A.J." is extremely powerful, in an artsy way. Phil helps this along by really belting out the vocals on the final chorus.

I can't stand Phil Collins singning on most of Genesis songs (until they got completely unprogressive) It's somekind of sickness that I have that makes me hide infront of Wind & Wuthering and ...And Then They Were Three.

My favorite Phil era studio albums:
 
1- A Trick of the Tail
2- And Then There Were Three
3- Wind & Wuthering
4- Duke
5- We Can't Dance
6- Genesis
7- Invisible Touch
8- Abacab
 
And yes, all of the Gabriel albums are infinitely better! 
 
Can you tell me where my country lies?

It's a great album and certainly ten times better than most the music that was coming out at that time in 1981. Now, just for the record, I certainly enjoy Foxtrot or Lamb Lies Down more than Abacab, but I still enjoy it as a change from time to time too and the whole record is fun to listen to. I doubt anyone can mention a similar record from anyone in 1981, they are completely original even when making shorter songs.

People that don't know much about music, haven't heard it, or deny themselves the chance to hear it, refer to "ratings" and such stuff, is that your case too Melo-mini-ac? If so, open your mind, listen and get an opinion of your own.

I bought Abacab some ten years ago, and tried as I might, I found it plain horrid.  I gave it enough spins to make my own opinion of it, believe me.  In the end I sold it to a used records store.  Just my taste!
About not knowing much about music, I will turn 32 this September and have been playing music since I was 10, and was already a Floyd fan at the age of 5, so I won't even bother with that.  Sorry that other people's opinions offend you that much !
 
Peace !
I also agree that Abacab is a very ordinary record only worsened by the terrible Invisble Touch . There were much better releases in 1981.
How wonderful to be so profound

Just tends to confirm what I say, people give opinions on things they don't even know. Abacab DOES NOT INCLUDE Invisible Touch! Invisible Touch was published 5 years later, in 1986!

Listen to the records and THEN give an opinion.

anyone who enjoys and then there were three is just sorta lost when it comes to what makes great music.  The effects used on that, no matter how well you enjoy banks solos, the synth sound AWFUL.
 
The drumming is awful, the vocals are phil colins who is a disney singer fruit fly, omg its just miserable.
 
I will listen to music from the 80's when I turn homosexual and want to have a dance party with my gay friends and lather eachother u-p with vasaline to the sounds of 80's genesis and other awful bands from this era.  slap eachothers asses a little, dance around, get some apple juice and a bonnet

¿So, what do you listen, now that you are an awfull homophobic who thinks that the secret of the univers regarding what makes music being good or bad is in his hand?. No offense.

My post of June 28 suggested that this thread was in danger of being shut down. The quality of posts here has taken sudden but not unexpected turn for the worse which is a shame because it has provoked some interesting discussion. Would someone please do us all a favour and put this thread out of its degenerate misery. Those of us who have appreciated this thread will remember why!
Looking still the same after all these years...

Blanket statements like this are not only uncalled for, but pretty friggin' insulting. I like it and I'm far from "lost", my friend. Maybe you should keep generalizations like this to yourself. An rotten thing to say.

And the post only gets worse. Listen, the next time you have a thought, do us a favor and let it go.

No matter where I might stand on this issue, this could be the most immature, offensive, and idiodic post I have seen here.

That is, of course, just my opinion.

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.
 
Abacab -- the full length title track -- was the darndest thing any of us had heard, at that time. Everyone thought that was the coolest jam. Its sudden appearance on FM airwaves was like a hook from left field, or, outer space.
 
It was very progressive for that time.

This thread has run its course, and is degenerating rapidly.
