I want a performance of onward from 2018. Also a few boots have Tony Kaye and Patrick Moraz playing with them. There are also rumours that they will be touring Relayer with Patrick Moraz in 2019

I want fly from here with jon anderson!! I like time & a word since it's the most emotional/adventurous, but also still that young and raw group. I always thought Yes were the greatest of that era, till I discovered Genesis, and then realized Genesis were the greatest of that era. Genesis never had what Yes had, in terms of each album being a coherent, bowtie wrapped, album. Genesis were always more gritty, odd, daring, but imo achieved in the edges. I guess he was more influenced by beat poets, than Jon Anderson influenced by haru krishnu or whatever. Peter Gabriel had intellectual cred that is a bit unheard of, that took it to musical literary levels. Starting to feel like american psycho. But Yes made better albums probably, but Genesis is something else entirely. It is also interesting just how young Genesis were, and how they broke up before any of them really hit their musical prime, so all you ever got was the young band, (meaning if they didn't split up and go pop you probably would've got those accomplished works like Close to the Edge). When I listen on horn speakers it's the craziest experience ever.

Didn't Relayer get voted as the song that fans most wanted to hear played live? It's been a while.

Selling england by the pound is genesis' "close to the edge". Also, they were pretty prog for 2 albums after Peter left and before Steve left. Phil Collins said that Jon Anderson invited him to replace Bruford in 69 but he didnt go to the audition. What would've been...

Definitely Foxtrot is the one to get into them. I always had trouble with them, but it all clicked at some point. The Lamb Lies on Broadway is just like infinite puzzles and pieces, amazing stuff.

Yes Wind & Wuthering/Trick of the Tails as both prog, in fact, thats when they really excelled as musicians creating these professional, cohesive works, but without PG it's not as good. Dude was something else. It is hard to put in words what I mean by cohesive and the distinction might be pointless, RYM rates them all as 4's regardless. But on Fragile, on Close to the Edge, with Yes, there was something supremely polished, singular, virtuoso about them. Genesis with PG were def spilling over the edges with wild ideas and a harder sell for most.

My friends dad drums for a Genesis cover band and their proggy stuff never clicked for me until I saw those songs played live. Selling England by the Pound is awesome musically.

The Lamb is the top Genesis album for me. So adventurous musically and lyrically. Selling England is wonderful, Foxtrot is so unique— Supper’s Ready is so quirky, peculiar, heavy and light— it really became a transcendent experience live. Nursery Cryme is the beginning of those journeys. Trespass sounds dated but is interesting in hearing the seeds of what was to follow.

ATOTT through ...ATTWT are great albums, full of stories and cinematic moments musically, but not as inventive as the Gabriel-era material. Duke is the bookend for that— it’s the last vestige of that melodrama that made Genesis special. Abacab was a plateau that had less of those moments and for me was the last listenable Genesis album. Everything else blows.

I like to listen to their music over fall and winter. Seems to soundtrack those seasons.

P.S. The Musical Box is a fantastic tribute act— licensed by Genesis— and are touring Europe now with a 1970-1977 extravaganza of their music and stage shows from those years. I was fortunate to see them in Dallas in 2011 on their Lamb tour. A must see for fans of that period of music.

Oh yeah— Yes.

The Yes Album through Going For The One are pretty much flawless albums for them. This new ARW track has traces of the old spirit— sadly, it would be grand to hear Squire’s harmony blend in with it as well as one of his ol sinewy bass riffs. RIP
