    I would have thought so.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

        Re: Genesis

        Phil Collins was an excellent replacement for Peter Gabriel and with Steve Hackett on guitar, they continued to be a prog rock band. Seconds Out is a sublime live album with the standout being Supper's Ready. Duke was the last album they did that was actually progressive with the best tracks being Behind The Lines, Duchess, Man Of Our Times, Turn It On Again, Cul-De-Sac, Duke's Travels and Duke's End. Also check out Mama which I first heard at my uncle's house when I was 11, Home By The Sea, Tonight Tonight Tonight, Domino and Fading Lights.

                  It is after those two albums that I lost interest in Genesis. It did not matter about Phil Collins having a solo career and working along side Genesis (They really started to sound as bad and cringe full as each other). Phil also began to get too personal I really started to hate their sound more and more as the 70's became the 80's.Fake electronic drums did not help their cause.

                  Still I will agree that Wind and Wuthering and Trick Of The Tail were the last of the great albums they released.

                    We are in agreement, i'm going to see them in November just hope they will resist the temptation to play "the hits"

                      I watched Phil Collins with his band and backing singers in his 2004 Montreux concert it was a fab concert with Phil obviously talking to the audience in French

                        The later Genesis I didn't like much because of the clangy synths production, some of it was really irritating. I have always liked Phil Collins' voice though. So everything from the start up to the mid '80s and then I start wanting to weed out the clangy bits with effects. There were a lot of artists sounding like that back then, not my favorite time for music.

                          I do like their Jesus He Loves me, which is a take that to televangelists, who were in the news a lot in the early 1990s for all the wrong reasons.

                          The chorus sounds like a Christian Rock song, so hopefully some Religious Right people have tried using as an anthem like Born In The USA, without bothering to listen to the verses which tell a different story!
