Exactly the same. Even if you divided Gabriel and Hackett eras, the Gabriel one would be the clear winner, but the Hackett one may still get some of the votes.
I like the Hackett albums a lot more. Granted, the Gabriel years have a lot more albums, but then again I kind of extend the Hackett years to Duke even tho he wasn't in half of those albums.

I did like Collins voice much better than Gabriel's, but still I like Gabriel's era albums the better; except for "The Lamb", which I feel kind of lost the magic from the previous 2 or 3 albums (and which was somewhat recovered on the "Hackett" era albums).

I suppose the only Genesis album I really did not feel too keen about was Calling All Stations, gave it a go though. Shows what a fine writer Phil Collins is, even the 80s era Genesis  (hated because of what it isn't i.e. the same thing what everyone expects) has many memorable moments. Home By The Sea 1 and 2 is just fine.

Anyway the eras should be pre-Hackett, Hackett and Post Hackett just to give the poll a bit more variety.

Yeah, that Home by the Sea song(s) is really cool. Just about as good (though somewhat different) as the stuff they released in their (prog) prime.

I kind of hate to say it but anyone who votes for anything but the first one(early period)is probably on the wrong website.Smile

Part 3 of the through Time Series. This time it is Genesis!

i would classify this a bit differently - there would be the Gabriel period, then the quartet period (ATOTT and W&W) and then the trio years. 

It is my thread. Get it, got it, good Tongue
